Kyle gets problems solved. It doesn't matter the industry or technology, Kyle should be the first person you call no matter what project you're working on. If you're not already talking to Kyle then I guarantee your project has already missed many opportunities for success.
Both on a business and personal level I always look forward to hearing about Kyle’s lastest prosperous venture. He has the mind of an entrepreneur, the personality of a veteran leader, and the experience to make it look easy. He brings an unmatched level of enthusiasm and energy to the table with an execution that always leaves you chasing his coattails. Whatever pace you wanted to grow your business, product, or idea, forget it and watch Kyle knock you off your feet and blow away your expectations.
There are many people out in the business world who are out for themselves. It's a fact of life. They are driven to succeed at any cost.
Kyle is a very ambitious person, but he understands there is a better way to the top. Rather than tearing down others, he builds them up. In the process, those he helps push him to the top. He's intelligent and hardworking. Honest and Humble. He was a big help in my own career, and I highly recommend working with this person. He's a true team player, but he knows how to lead.
Kyle and I spent a year together in the Ambassador's program of High Tech Ministries where we refined our character and adjusted our daily habits and practices to be those more clearly demonstrated by Jesus while He was in the marketplace.
Kyle's sharp insights and complete commitment to Do the Right Thing! creates at atmosphere around him that simply makes you want to be with him. He leads with conviction and errors on the side of love. What a unique set of traits for a hard charging guy in an industry that provides great opportunities for high integrity models.
Kyle is a born entrepreneur and leader. I was hired by him at NanoLumens and it didn't take long for me to see the significant impact he had on the early growth of the company. You can be sure that any company he works with will be outstanding.
I had the great pleasure of working with Kyle for over a year here at NanoLumens. To say I learned a lot from him would be a vast understatement. His knowledge of social media, marketing, sales and relationship building are unmatched by anyone I've ever met.
Kyle and I traveled to many places together representing NanoLumens and his passion for both our industry and the company was very evident in everything he did.
I am truly better at my job because of Kyle Porter and absolutely recommend him for any position he is given.
Kyle is a wicked smart cat, and one of those guys you meet who you just know, quickly, will be very successful. Shortly after we met, I was telling my business partners we had to figure out who to hire him. Too late now ;-)
Kyle and I worked together at Allure Global, and it was always fascinating to watch Kyle in action. He was full of life and very passionate about his business and goals. His strengths are his ability to always be ahead of the game by looking at innovative ways to improve customer solutions. That paired with his positive attitude makes Kyle a true asset to his customers and business associates.
I met Kyle two and a half years ago when he was going through High Tech Ministries' 10 month Ambassador Leadership Program. Kyle completed the rigorous requirements of the program with ease and graduated with a heart ready and willing to serve Jesus Christ.
Since his graduation, Kyle has partnered with High Tech Ministries on a number of initiatives, most notibly the 2009 Legacies of Leadership Program. Kyle took the leadership on this 200 person forum featuring a prominant Atlanta technology celebrity. He ensured the event's success by overseeing details ranging from PR to day of details and did it all with a heart of service and humility.
Kyle is an amazing partner to High Tech Ministries and continues to be an active participant in many aspects of our ministry. His leadership, determination, and work ethic all make him an up-and-coming leader in the Atlanta technology community.
Even though I'm slightly older than Kyle, I look-up to him. Kyle is very disciplined at his craft, and I admire how at such as young age, he has found so much passion for the digital signage industry. 2 qualities of Kyle that separate him are his extreme level of professionalism, and his sincerity to deliver on his promises.
Keep up the good work Kyle! You're the next generation of the great entrepreneur!
If integrity, ability, intelligence, trustworthiness, creativitiy, great attitude, committment, making people happy even when it's tough, and client satisfaction are what you are in need of, it'd be hard to recommend anyone more than Kyle. I'd work with him any day of the week.
I have worked with Kyle on a couple of occasions when I was looking for Java consultants. Kyle is a very personable and friendly person who doesn't hesitate to offer his help when in need. He has helped me with recruiting top J2EE talents in the Atlanta area. He has a thorough understanding of what is required to get the job done. Above all he lends an ear to what his clients have to say and acts accordingly. Given a chance I would not hesitate to do business with Kyle again.
