The following provides a brief overview of highlights of Trident Communications’ consulting work:
Deployed the first patented Video-On-Demand (VOD) in the world in 1994 in Rochester, New York, with Rochester Telephone. USA Video partnered with DEC and Samsung to successfully compete against Time Warner and AOL; resulting in the company securing a series of multi-million dollar raises to launch this precedent-setting project, while concurrently increasing the number of shareholders by over 1,600 percent, and simultaneously getting news published by CNN, the Wall Street Journal, the L.A. Times, the New York Times, and other national and international publications.
In 2006, completed one of the first successful deployments of Anti-Piracy software at 20th Century Fox for the studio’s “screener” division. Created a solution that not only functioned perfectly, but also provided a series of system attributes that no other company could provide, while working with the President of Engineering for FOX Group and EVP Global Research & Technology Strategy. The software was deployed globally and is still being successfully utilized by the studio’s relevant divisions within the international marketplace.
Led the first US-sponsored investigative contingent to tour Chernobyl after the December, 1991, fall of the Soviet Union. Concentrating on Emergency Preparedness and related Radiation Protection and Recovery programs, developed and implemented, from 1992 to 1996, the US-Ukraine Technology/Information Exchange sponsored by the Ukraine Academy of Sciences and various US agencies, including the Department of Energy, and private corporations.
Led the Corporate Affairs and Community Outreach team tasked with reversing the negative perception and poor performance of Northeast Utilities and the Millstone Nuclear Power Station (in Waterford, Connecticut), following the 1996 Time Magazine cover story highlighting the utility’s and facility’s problems. Designed corrective action and crisis management plans; marketing plans; community, educational, media, and political outreach plans; and managed staff and budgets to successfully re-establish Northeast Utilities and Millstone Power Station as leaders in the industry; and to be regarded positively by share and stakeholders throughout the internal organization, and with the community, politicians and business leaders, industry regulators, and media.
Led a team of specialists, scientists, managers, and executive-level experts to introduce a disruptive technology-based, new-to-market video compression algorithm and company that we advanced in such a manner that it grew from a stock price of less than $0.10 to over $10.00 per share within a one-year time frame.
Designed and ran Emergency Preparedness, Security and Safety drills and exercises, and developed protocols and procedures for nuclear power generating stations, interacting with local, state, and federal agencies for the conduct and evaluation of graded drills and exercises. Developed comprehensive Crisis Management, Emergency Preparedness, and Radiological Protection programs for all organizational levels – from field-based to executive-level management.
Led fundraising efforts for various non-profit organizations and charities, as well as for for-profit industrial and financial investment companies totaling over $33 million; and utilizing strategically-developed operations, marketing, and expansion plans and techniques whose implementation achieved said goals.
