Montrail Cooper had an interest in the tech industry long before he came to Zeek. Tech advances intrigued him from childhood and in November 2008 he determined to pursue his dream and enrolled in classes at ITT Tech Institute. After earning a Bachelors of Science, Monty welcomed the opportunity to develop and execute test strategies and test cases as a Lead Quality Assurance Engineer at Zeek.
Monty brings a colorful history of experience to Zeek, having been a real estate agent, mortgage loan officer, sales manager, and ammunition missile specialist in the US Army. He also possesses a strong background in 3G/4G/LTE technologies and layer-2 and layer 3 routing concepts. When not at work, Monty relishes playing speed chess and working out or dining at the local sushi bar or Korean BBQ.
As many of you know, I’ve been proud to know Steve Zehngut and call him a friend for more than twenty years. I’ve also been proud to work with him in partnership at RealEstateShows.com for the last 12 years and at Zeek Interactive for last five. The friendship that has endured several decades will continue to endure, but my relationship with Zeek is officially changing.
In October of 2013, I expressed my desire to focus on RealSatisfied and ended my daily management involvement at Zeek. Today my role at Zeek is now officially moving to that of “strategic advisor.”
Thank you to everyone who has supported my time at Zeek, especially those in the OC WordPress community. I’m sure I’ll be visiting from time to time. And while I have greatly enjoyed my time as President of Zeek Interactive, I’m looking forward to what lies ahead.
