eDOORWAYS Corp (EDWY.OB) has created a new portal that takes the best of existing websites, such as MySpace, Craigslist, and eBay, to the next level. The company envisions that the portal will become an interactive global community of experts, consumers, and service provides that will streamline the way people find new products and services.
Founder Gary Kimmons has over 30 years of creating market-driven concepts. He first earned a Bachelor degree in Behavioral Science from William Marsh Rice University and a Masters degree in Management Science from Stevens Institute of Technology at Rutgers. Kimmons spent the early portion of his career in human resources. He was the Director of Training and Development at Smith International from 1978 to 1981, then moved on to serve as a Human Resources Manager at Reading & Bates Corporation from 1981 to 1987. Between 1988 and 1992, Kimmons moved on from human resources to work for the U.S. Department of Transportation.
Kimmons then began a new venture by founding GK Intelligent Systems, Inc. With Kimmons at the helm, GK was able to create Smart OneSM, an advanced learning technology that is able to emulate a human teacher by determining what a student knows, how a student learns best, and what a student can do. The system is modeled to offer students with continued support until a subject is mastered. The Smart OneSM technology was launched by The Smithsonian, Radio Shack, AOL, and National Geographic, taking GK to a $500 million market cap. After a takeover attempt, Kimmons successfully re-launched GK by negotiating key acquisitions of several private entertainment/lifestyle companies and by taking the company into a new direction focused on next-generation media.
While Kimmons leads the day-to-day operations of the company, Marty Lobkowicz is in charge of the sales and marketing of eDOORWAYS. Lobkowicz is President of MML International, a marketing consulting firm that help companies develop and execute effective sales and marketing plans. Prior to creating MML, Lobkowicz worked in product merchandising, MIS and finance positions with a number of retail companies such as BJ Wholesale Club and Office Depot. While at Office Depot as VP â€“ General Merchandising Manager of the Technology Products Division, Lobkowicz was able to establish a number of key business relationships with other executives in the retail industry.
Kimmons and Lobkowicz have a well-established business relationship as the two have collaborated successfully since the late 1990s. With two strong leaders at its helm, eDOORWAYS is well on its way to transitioning from a vision to reality.
