CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER
Benjamin King is the Chief Technology Officer and is responsible for overall system architecture at Voalté, Inc.
While technology has peaked Benjamin’s interest for about as long as he could remember, it isn’t his only love. In 1996,
he fused his two passions – computers and business – and created a plan to help businesses incorporate the Internet to facilitate sales and production. Ahead of its time and clearly visionary, he was awarded the Young Entrepreneurial Award by the Rotary Club.
In 2001, Ben joined Atlanta-based bio-medical startup CardioMEMS as its third employee. During his five years with the
Company, he spent several years in various engineering positions culminating in his role as a bio-medical engineer. Ben
was instrumental in assisting the launch of the Company’s first in-vivo cardiovascular pressure sensor and played an
integral role in the research and development of CardioMEMS technology. After CardioMEMS, Ben decided to delve back into the field of computers and the Internet. He founded DemandEO in 2006 where he focused on dynamic web applications using the latest web browser technologies. DemandEO created a “file browser” web application that employed these new technologies. This application was a great example of a cross-platform, rich Internet application. Through work experience and self-education, he amassed an impressive expertise of Internet and web-based technologies.
With the advent of the iPhone in 2007, Ben recognized this as a revolutionary device that would transform technology’s current landscape. He began focusing on creating web applications optimized for the iPhone’s web browser and native iPhone applications using the Software Developer’s Kit. He has been actively involved in the iPhone developer community and has developed web-based and native iPhone applications for such companies as Bacardi.
Benjamin attended the Georgia Institute of Technology where he earned a Bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering
and Master’s in Materials Science. While at Georgia Tech, he expanded his expertise in engineering by performing
research on next generation Internet protocols at the Broadband and Wireless Networking Laboratory.
