    Special Guest Speaker: Ron Klein "The Grandfather of Possibilities"  

    Ron Klein is a highly successful CEO and entrepreneur, an Electrical and Computer Systems Design and Development Engineer, and the sole inventor and developer of some of the most important technologies and products for the Banking and Real Estate industries in the 20th century.

    The passion for life that has been at the very foundation of Ron Klein's success was evident at an early age. Ron was greatly influenced by his Grandpa Samuel, a dynamic man and prolific inventor (the boiler feeder for
    the first pressing machines, television "Rabbit Ear" antennas, early devices for protecting ships from torpedoes, and the joint inventor of the key apparatus for the propulsion of ships). At the lap of his beloved Grandpa
    Samuel, Ron developed a zeal for life and learning. By the age of six, he was a virtuoso on both the guitar and banjo, (winning a variety of contests), and began to exhibit an undeniable affinity for building and
    "inventing" things. To this day, Ron gives a large portion of the credit for his success to his grandfather, who instilled in him the core values of positivity, integrity, and determination. Perhaps it is the memory of this
    special bond shared with Grandpa Samuel that brings a smile to Ron's face as people now refer to him as the Grandfather of Possibilities.

    Ron Klein is the inventor of the Magnetic Strip Credit Card Validity Checking System, a proprietary innovation that has directly touched the lives of billions of consumers. He developed the Bond Quotation and Trade
    Information System for the New York Stock Exchange, as well as the computerized systems for Real Estate Multiple Listing Services (MLS) and Voice Response for the Banking Industry. Klein was the Founder and CEO of
    the publicly traded Technitrend, INC., and the Founder and CEO of General Associates, INC. While working intimately with the NYSE on Wall Street, Ron led General Associates in the development of a system that enabled
    up-to-the-minute bond quotations and trade information for the NYSE and a variety of other financial institutions. In the years that followed, GA would develop proprietary video display systems and other financial products
    for the American Stock Exchange, Philadelphia Stock Exchange, New York Futures Exchange, and New York Comex Exchange. 

    As this Senior Olympian in Cycling, Purple Heart Recipient, CEO, sailing enthusiast, inventor and engineer would say himself, "We are all capable of moving in any direction we desire. If you have a passion for what you do,
    anything is possible." 

    Ron Klein is a graduate of Temple University, where he earned a B.S. in Electrical Engineering. He is the proud father of two children and four beautiful grandchildren. He lives in Sarasota, Florida with his wife Arlene.
