Claude Smith-

Mr. Smith's experience traverses many businesses, progressing to his current major effort in wastewater treatment. After earning his B.S. Degree in Math from LeMoyne College, Syracuse, New York, and receiving his MBA from the University of Kentucky, Lexington, Claude began his career in IBM, New York City as a computer programmer and systems analyst in the 1970s. Following this, he moved to computer sales in IBM's New York City financial district, and subsequently accepted employment at Citibank in New York. At Citibank, he held various jobs including Director of International Communications, and ended with a 3-year tour of duty in London as Vice President of Operations for one of Citibank's largest international retail banking facilities.

On his return to the U.S., he found entrepreneurial activities to be attractive and formed his own telecommunications company partnering with staff from the New York Stock Exchange. From there, the company expanded to servicing banks and financial institutions across the country and business grew in both New York and California. Customers included Master Card, First Interstate Bank, Citibank, Chase, and other smaller banks.

When interstate banking replaced many consulting firms in California in 1991, he moved to Las Vegas and began his career in helping high-potential, technology-driven businesses turn around, moving them from losing or break-even positions to significant and profitable operations. In these efforts to date, he became a partner in and helped create the largest graphics firm in the Casino Gaming Industry, was a partner in and helped create the Casino industry's largest website services company, and is now a partner in a wastewater treatment company, headed for national expansion.

Claude is married and has 3 children. He serves on various Boards in business advisory positions.
