Victor Nemechek, El Gato’s Director of Marketing, manages the non-engineering portion of the energetic, cutting-edge, Macintosh-only software development company. El Gato has earned a reputation as a premier software development organization by creating award-winning products such as Roxio’s Toast 5 Titanium and SmartDisk’s FlashMedia Reader.
