CEO Nexus Forum at Rollins College Draws Representatives of more than 100 Companies, Next Forum Scheduled for March

ORLANDO, Fla. (Feb. 24, 2012)  --- CEO Nexus, the firm that works with public and private organizations to help second stage companies accelerate their growth and generate new employment, held one of its biggest CEO Nexus forums recently at Rollins College.

Steve Quello, president of CEO Nexus, said more than 100 Central Florida companies were represented at the event.

Quello said the recent Rollins College CEO Nexus forum co-hosted by Rollins College Center for Advanced Entrepreneurship, the UCF Business Incubation Program, the Florida High Tech Corridor Council, and local area chambers of commerce were in attendance.

Altogether this year, CEO Nexus produced some 16 forum events throughout Florida. “Groups and organizations are now working together to help revitalize the Florida economy and create more jobs,” Quello said.

The next CEO Nexus forum is slated for March 14 at Rollins College, by invitation only.

Rob Wight, co-founder, president and chief executive officer of Channel Intelligence, will be the keynote speaker.  Wight was the architect of the products and services that made Channel Intelligence a leading e-commerce technology provider that is relied on by retailers such as Best Buy, Target and Kimberly-Clark.   Prior to co-founding CI, several leading technology companies had Wight at the helm of innovative software systems development – especially backup/storage software – including Microsoft that he left in 1998 to form Channel Intelligence.
