About You and Drink Tank, Ltd....
My job function in the company:
Years in business:
About Drink Tank Ltd:
TankH2O stainless steel water bottles ... that look just like Scuba Tanks !! We can custom-paint your logos/artwork on them when ordered in volume. Or you can slap your own sticker(s) on them and they are ready to go. That is our first product line ... some of you know where we are going with our future product lines (secret).
Goal(s) for 2013:
Partner with scuba dive stores, worldwide, to share in our crazy early successes.
Greatest achievement in 2012:
Making sure our product was bullet-proof. Well, not literally bullet-proof, but surely a hardened product that can take a beating, whether on a dive boat, at sea on a live-aboard, by the pool-deck, in your car or at the office. Even an industrial dishwasher won't wreck our bottle and/or its unique top-cap ... but we dont have much control over the quality of stickers that users put on their TankH2O's to customize them (which is common), so we suggest "Hand Washing" in those cases.
About You, "The Professional"...
What I find most rewarding about my job:
How happy customers are when they pick up their first TankH2O and we say, "Tank You for your business".
What I am most proud of (professionally):
Taking the simplest idea and turning it into a great product that literally defines "clever marketing" within our scuba diving industry.
Greatest piece of business advice I ever received:
Always go high-end. Don't settle for second-best quality, whether it is in design, manufacturing, marketing, or partnering.
Where I see myself and/or business in 5 years:
Our "next big thing" will define our long-term goals, targeted for Dive Resorts, Live-aboards, and Restaurants/Bars ... scattered throughout the Tropics, worldwide.
About You, "The Person"...
Favorite place to dive:
Fiji's "Rainbow Reef"
Most memorable dive experience:
A full-moon with crystal clear skies, when surfacing after a night-dive ... two worlds so far apart and that are so abstract from most other human experiences.
"Attitude is Everything!"
Something people would be surprised to learn about me:
I do not like cold water.
