|Patrick J. Sweeney II
President and CEO
ODIN technologies, Inc.
Mr. Sweeney is a proven entrepreneur and technology visionary with a history of building successful companies. He is well recognized as a thought leader in the RFID industry, and has recently had a patent approved, with several other patents in various stages of approval. Mr. Sweeney is the author of RFID for Dummies published by John Wiley & Sons and Wiley's CompTIA RFID+ study guide. He has been interviewed by The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, CIO Magazine, Fortune Magazine, and ABC News, among others. He is a frequent speaker at industry conferences and web casts. His combination of technical and business acumen help him form the vision and shape the direction of the emerging RFID industry. Mr. Sweeney's involvement in many governing bodies and standards committees effectively transfers those ideas into policy.
Mr. Sweeney founded ODIN technologies in 2002 by recruiting the founder of the EPC protocol Dr. Daniel Engels, the Director of MIT's Auto-ID lab. The company created the infrastructure space for RFID and continues to be the dominant player in the physics of RFID deployment, research, and installation optimization software. Their clients range from Fortune 50 leaders to the largest RFID network ever publicly competed for - the US Department of Defense' DLA - which ODIN won in May of 2006.
In the late 90's Mr. Sweeney founded ServerVault, a secure managed hosting company, and led the company as CEO, through fourteen quarters of consecutive sales growth. At ServerVault, he recruited world-class talent, developed novel technologies, expanded internationally and earned loyal customer relationships. He successfully sold ServerVault to affiliates of Western & Southern Financial Group in 2001.
