With the recent announcement of distribution and availability of unique doctor crafted products to the marketplace, we are pleased to welcome Sam Elias to the GRPS fold. Mr. Elias has an amazing business background (see curriculum vitae – link to website) and recognizes the ever-expanding potential of our company, especially with his active involvement in all matters from production to sale.
As senior vice president of Seagull Software Systems, Mr. Elias was responsible for establishing integral relationships of IBM business development worldwide. Mr. Elias helped take Seagull Software Systems from $1,000,000 in revenue, grown to more than $20,000,000, with more than 1,500 clients and 500 ISV partners. He helped to sell this company to Rocket Software in 2007 for a value exceeding $300,000,000, before becoming Senior Vice President and General Manager of Rocket Software, exceeding expectations and growing revenues from $41,000,000 to $85,000,000, while doubling its EBITDA to nearly $38,000,000.
Mr. Elias will be in charge of all things related to products from development to production to worldwide distribution and sales. “I don’t want a salary. I don’t need the money,” Mr. Elias explained to Chairman of the Board, Richard Goulding. He explained further, “what I see is vast potential for this Company. What you and Dr.’s Bond have assembled, is an untapped market. Your products will compete with pharmaceuticals and be far less toxic. While the initial distribution with All Star Brands is substantial, I think this could be much bigger. I have the right connections for a worldwide market. I will make this succeed.”
