Ontier Beefs Up Their Board

Portland-based Ontier is remaining secretive about exactly what they do, but the buzz is building after the acquisition of two major Oregon tech players. Les Fahey and Paul Gulick have both joined the Ontier’s board of directors and put money into the business.
Fahey is known for running Fehey Ventures and working as a tax partner at KMPG, and Gulick started InFocus and Clarity Visual Systems.
CEO Sebastian Rapport told Silicon Forest’s Mike Rogway that Ontier is finishing up their angel round and hoping to secure Series A funding by spring of 2009.
Ontier’s beta relese is supposedly coming in early 2009. It promises “the power of in-person interaction” and “the end of long, confusing email exchanges.” Ontier still isn’t making any concrete promises on what they can deliver; however, beefing up their board could lead to some great results.
