As chief executive officer, David Beckemeyer sets corporate strategy and oversees all aspects of the business for TelEvolution. He has been instrumental in spearheading and executing TelEvolution's major milestones, including founding the company, developing the patent-pending PhoneGnome technology and business model, securing angel financing, establishing a world-class advisory board, and recruiting a seasoned executive team.
