Immediately after completing graduate school, Mr. Bogart worked for IBM Corporation in New Jersey and California for 10 years.

As Engineering Manager, Mr. Bogart received the IBM President’s award for his outstanding achievement. A highlight of his career included directing a sales and marketing staff with an annual quota of up to $680 million of personal computer products in a four state area for more than four years. He also managed a staff of more than 50 engineering professionals on a manufacturing site, and created and implemented Western Area marketing plans through two sales teams resulting in annual growth of more than 30% as well as the number one performance in the nation in 1987.
In 1992 Mr. Bogart started his own company, Bestest International, which he ran until 2007. The company was a leading provider of moisture and composition analyzers, and registered 12 consecutive years of record sales and profits. During that time, Mr. Bogart created all the programs and procedures for more than 200 electronic measurement instruments. He also developed sales concepts that helped eliminate a market leader and allowed the company to grow 125% over a two-year period.
Mr. Bogart received his B.S. degree summa cum laude with distinction from Ohio State University and his MBA with honors from Northwestern University on a full academic scholarship.
