MetroLeads Drives Growth

 

Our Story

MetroGuild was started in late 2006 by three high-tech executives who decided that there are plenty of companies that continue to develop new and ever more esoteric technologies; that they themselves are guilty of starting several of these; and that they are no longer challenged by the prospect of starting yet another one, nor would they enjoy it.

Rather, they thought, it might be exciting to use their substantial experience and understanding of current and future technology trends to help real ‘low-tech’ businesses to productively exploit the internet to generate more leads, attract more customers and make more money, and willingly and happily share a small percentage of additional revenue with MetroGuild.

Cyrus Irani

Cyrus, a co-founder of MetroGuild, has been in the high tech industry for over 25 years focused on marketing, PR, business development, sales and general management of innovative technologies across several market sectors, an important one of which was retail. Cyrus started at Xerox Corporation in a group that spun technology out of Xerox PARC to develop and sell the first PCs (with Icon based Operating Systems, 19″ screens, and mice) and networked servers that are still the blueprint for PCs/Macs and servers today. He started as a systems engineer and quickly moved to managing an R&D group. This experience provided an outstanding foundation for innovation and systems design.

Since then, Cyrus has held product management, CEO or executive positions in operations and management of products and services in communications equipment and telecommunications software at Retix (Director Product Marketing), AT&T GIS (Product Line Manager), Alchemy Group (co-founder & CEO), Vertel (Telecommunications software and services) (CEO, President, COO, and/or Vice President) and Strix Systems (WLAN mesh networking systems) (co-founder, Sr. Vice President).
