Neil is the Chief Operations Officer at Purple Deck Media, Inc., a company co-founded by him, James H. Sulfare, Jr, and Daniel Shope in 2014. His professional expertise is in business operations, from start to finish. He leads the daily activities of the company, is the primary Project Manager, in addition to working directly with legal and accounting to ensure that objectives can be met.
In late 2012, Purple Deck Media started as an idea to enhance the way consumers interact with their smart phones. At that time, it was just an idea, but Neil and the other founders worked hard to form the business and a sophisticated platform for mobile content delivery. In 2014, Purple Deck Media was submitted to the business to the Ben Franklin and Penn State BIG Idea Competition, in which they were a finalist. Later in 2015, Neil’s community impact objective led to the company being a finalist in the PA Governor’s Community ImPAct Awards.
In the span of just four years, Purple Deck Media, Inc. has gone from an idea to a corporation with strong partnerships in the United States and International. Purple Deck Media is unique, with a growing staff, and a corporate culture like no other. With a significant mindset towards the future and enhancing the user experience for mobile devices throughout the world, the team is constantly leading new ideas and new innovations within the company.
“It is an honor to work for and help build such a wonderful and innovative company! The team, culture, clients, and products all make Purple Deck Media, Inc., a very exciting company to serve. I have to thank one of my mentors, CEO, and fellow founder, Jim Sulfare for his mentoring and leadership. I am looking forward to seeing our company grow each day and serve the community of organizations that are part of the Purple Deck Media family!” said Neil.
Following the event, Mr. Neil and the other award recipients will be featured in a special publication distributed in the November 25 edition of the Central Penn Business Journal.
