This month's TPU interview is with Alex Mei of OCZ Technology. Alex joined OCZ over four years ago as the Vice President of Marketing and has recently been promoted to Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. Not only is he now in charge of marketing OCZ products to consumers and system builders, but he also manages customer service, strategic partnerships with other companies and has to interface with all the other departments including sales and operations. Clearly Alex is a busy man, so I thank him for answering questions for this article.
Alex says that he has always had an interest in computers and gaming. He grew up in California only a few miles from Silicon Valley, and comes from a family that spent time in the computer industry. A self-described tech geek, his interests led him to the University of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo where he studied Management Information Systems. But when he was close to completing his course work he had a change of heart and instead stayed to complete a degree in Marketing Management. techPowerUp!
