Prior to getting into Real Estate, I was employed with Motorola for 25 years, with the last 18 years in the Cellular Division. My career with Motorola consisted of 3 years in the Home Electronics division, 7 years in 2 way communications as an Sales Engineer, Consultant, Micro Wave Communications Consultant with customers such as Natural Gas Pipeline of America, Northern Natural Gas, Shell Oil, Amoco, Standard Oil, etc. In 1983 I became a Consultant Engineer to the telephone industry traveling around the country talking up a "New" thing called "Cellular Communications". In 1984, I became a Sales Administrator to the Midwest Area Sales force, which consisted of over 200 sales personnel. In 1992, I was Promoted to Systems Program Manager for the GTE Sales Group and in 1997 I opened an office in Tampa, FL. and worked closely with GTE and Motorola to provide Cellular switching and service for cellular systems to small companys who could not afford their own switching network. Motorla and GTE broke up their joint venture in 1998 and I took retirement at that time.
