As we finish celebrating Independence Day, it only seems fitting that today’s team member introduction is of our blue-eyed, all-American CEO, Steven Gerhardt.


Favorite thing about working at Element Blue?

I really enjoy the people I am teamed with to build Element Blue; all the folks I am around every day are giving a great effort professionally to make the company a valuable partner to our customers.

Coolest project you’ve worked on at Element Blue?

Desert Mountain — a 10,000 acre community with a great challenge to supply water and energy in extraordinary conditions — the desert of the southwest.

Goals for yourself in conjunction with Element Blue?

Keeping the balance to focus on our customers, products and technology market challenges while adding value to our team’s personal and professional goals.

Favorite aspect of technology?

The battles…  HD vs. Blu-ray; Betamax vs. VHS; Android vs. iPhone; 8-track vs. cassette; the list goes on.  And from these battlegrounds, the natural evolution for the market and economics to drive out the best products and solutions.

What are you most looking forward to technology wise?

The cure for cancer!

Random fact you’d like to share?

I had an Eddie Rabbit 8-track when I was just tall enough to look into the track player and try to figure out how the thing worked.  Listened to it so many times it ended up spooled around the innards on the last day of its life.
