The story of CEOExpress and its editor:
In 1996, Patricia Pomerleau founded AlphaSight Online Strategists, a consulting company focused on helping senior executives understand and utilize the Internet for strategic advantage. She quickly realized that many executives were uncomfortable with technology and did not clearly understand the vast potential of the Internet. For most of her clients, the Net seemed too overwhelming and time consuming to be worthwhile.
Out of this experience, she created CEOExpress as a tool to help her clients quickly grasp the utility of the Internet and the opportunities it presented to them. This Web tool has evolved significantly over its first year and now attracts over 75,000 visits a day. Word of mouth alone has made CEOExpress one of the most popular web sites for business executives.
In 1998, AlphaSight merged into a new company, CEOExpress Company, an entity dedicated to helping various professional groups such as senior executives, save time and get more out of the Internet. CEOExpress.com, the first of these offerings, is now in its fifth version with many features added such as email, stock portfolio, research center and full customization ability. CEOExpressSelectsm, the premium subscription offering, includes valuable features such as customized news, a comprehensive financial center, VIP Live Assistant Services, a fully customizable desktop and much more. CEOExpress has been named a Forbes "Best of the Web" Financial Portal every year that the award has been given since 2000. The site is also fully wireless enabled.
The 4th quarter of 2002 brought the announcement of a whole new set of technology products geared to the Intranet and Extranet markets. With a focus on member associations and Internet Service Providers (ISPs), CEOExpress Company launched CEOExpress Corporate, a fully customizable, private label desktop technology. By combining the elements of the award-winning public site with highly intuitive and customizable technology, CEOExpress Corporate enables organizations to quickly, effectively and affordably manage information, improve productivity and reduce costs.
