Meet Garey De Angelis

As VP of Product Development at Digital Lifestyle Outfitters, Garey helped the company grow by 4,385% over a 3-year period, prompting Inc. Magazine to rank it as the 3rd fastest-growing company in 2006, before its acquisition by Phillips, where he was instrumental in launching Philips’ entry into the Internet of Things.
