Management Summary

The Pie in the Sky Wi-Fi management team was put together specifically for the purpose of building Pie in the Sky Wi-Fi aggressively. This team has worked together for some time in other capacities and can quickly adjust to maintain control, competitiveness and an undying desire to accomplish any challenge.

In addition to the diversified and competent management team, we have created a Board of Advisors in an effort to lend additional experience and expertise to the company. These individuals are not employees of the company, but rather an advisory group selected by the management team in order to assist with the execution of the business model moving forward. Members of the advisory board were selected for their industry knowledge, experience and general interest in assisting the company succeed.

7.1 Personnel Plan

Salesperson/Reseller Recruitment
This is the great challenge, finding good sales people. Our ideal salesperson would be an outside "employed" rep; however, because of the nature of this beginning we are required to start with independent contractors. Initially, we will use the CRO's pool of contacts for sales recruiting. We may desire to do some advertising on such recruitment websites as Monster.com. We will look for experience in sales, telecom, commercial or residential building management will be looked for, professionalism with a can do attitude will be a must as is the single intangible above the others. Commission payments for these independently contracted sales people can be found in the Profit and Loss Statement.

In-House Sales/Support Staff
As Pie in the Sky Wi-Fi grows and our sales team grows we will hire sales field assistants for the regional managers; these assistants will work out of the corporate office, but will assist regional managers in the field. We plan to hire up to five in-house sales staff in the first year.
