Michael Wong’s journey to becoming the CEO of Genea isn’t typical. As an investor at a private equity firm, he learned a lot about what makes a company successful, but had no experience running one. And then Genea came across his desk. “Genea was not even a company at the time, it was more of a technology,” he says. “I thought this technology could be morphed into a great company with all those wonderful characteristics.” It was too small for his firm to invest in, but after diligent research into the struggling company, the board asked him to become their CEO. Having never before stepped into this role, it was not an easy decision. On this edition of UpTech Report, Michael talks about how he decided to take on this role, and why his experience as an investor told him the company had great potential to succeed.
Working late nights or weekends at the office can pose problems if you happen to want HVAC services (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning). Tenants usually have to phone the building manager 24 hours in advance to make a request. Engineers would be dispatched to turn on the equipment. Because of the additional cost, invoices would need to be generated for the tenant. It’s a lot of extra trouble just to make sure you can breathe. Michael Wong endeavors to solve that problem with his company, Genea, which offers a cloud-based system that connects with HVAC systems, and generates automatic billing for tenants. On this edition of UpTech Report, Michael talks about how this technology works and its implications for commercial real estate.
