Jeffrey L. Rubin, an experienced, proven executive, leader and manager, has extended a successful 20 year large company career at Comsat Corporation to an equally successful career as a small business entrepreneur and program manager. During the last 12 years, he has built, restructured, financed and turned around small high technology software companies in the Logistics Transformation arena.

As a senior operational Program Manager, Mr. Rubin is expert in establishing objectives, plans and budgets, managing operational, financial and technical performance, maintaining quality, achieving customer satisfaction, providing leadership and guidance to staff at all levels, serving as the principal contact with customers and corporate partners, establishing a work culture that generates loyalty, and using business relationships to identify and capture new business. As a business executive, Mr. Rubin has restructured three businesses, founded two, and sold one to a NASDAQ corporation. He has arranged asset sales, transferred business assets, sales of divisions, and has worked with creditors, customers, stockholders, investors, and staff. He conceived and led the development of three software and one hardware products, all of which became leaders in their respective industries.

As the founder of a 6 year old self-funded profitable since inception small business, JNR Associates, Mr. Rubin served as Product Manager for over six years as a consultant to EDO-AIL Corporation. He was charged with bringing a complex Internet/Oracle/Java based logistics focused information management product to market. Mr. Rubin was responsible for product definition, pricing, positioning and distribution. He lead a cross-functional JNR team of engineering, quality assurance, product testing, marketing, operations and sales that built, launched and delivered the product into the DOD marketplace for customers in the Air Force and Navy.

In addition to these efforts, he also established a long term relationship with Sikorsky Corporation that continues today on the Comanche helicopter program and restored a real-time UNIX based messaging system to operational reliability for a subsidiary of Comtech Telecommunications Corporation. All of this was accomplished by recruiting highly qualified and skilled professionals, managing using an empowered objective based style that has creating corporate loyalty and instilled a natural focus on customer success. More recently, he is leading an effort in partnership with a major defense contractor to acquire a large program through congressional plus-up funding.

At LCTI, Inc. and Lexico Enterprises, as head of both companies, Mr. Rubin developed and executed business and product development strategies that resulted in the profitable sale of assets and the closing of Lexico, under direction of its Board of Directors. Mr. Rubin then grew LCTI from a small start-up to over 32 employees. He led the development of LEXSYS, the leading MS Windows Automatic Test TRD/ATLAS Transformation Programming System of its time. Mr. Rubin then sold LCTI to Comarco, Inc. a NASDAQ corporation.

At Comsat, Mr. Rubin had a distinguished 20 year career, progressing from program management specialist to General Manager of two smaller Comsat businesses, preparing each for divestiture. At Comsat Laboratories, he was Director of Manufacturing Operations for over six years, doubling the size of its five departments to 160 persons, creating the first manufacturable echo canceller and developing a main frame based shop floor management system. As subsequent head of Corporate Business Systems, reporting to the Corporate CFO, he lead a reorganization effort that centralized a number of disparate, but parallel software development and computer systems management groups.

As a Corporate Strategic Planning Group member, Mr. Rubin developed the simplified financial model that provided the impetus for Comsat to exit its Direct Broadcast Satellite Venture prior to exhausting its capital resources. As Vice President/General Manager of Compact Software, a manufacturer of microwave design software, he restored a failing business to profitability within six months by refocusing to meet a new challenge from a PC based competitor. He then located the eventual buyer for the business, who grew it ten-fold prior to selling it again. As Vice President/General Manager of Comsat Mobile Systems, a manufacturer of Inmarsat Satellite Communications Terminals, Mr. Rubin initiated the development of what became known as the "single suitcase terminal", and corrected a major RF Interference flaw in the existing stationary ship-mounted system. Subsequently, the business was sold and sales increased from $3,000,000 annually to $30,000,000 annually.

Mr. Rubin attended the Comsat Executive Development Program at the University of Virginia Darden School, the Harvard Business School Program for Management Development, holds a Master of Engineering Administration from George Washington University and a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University.
