Paul Suchoski

[/st_text][st_text el_title=”Bio” text_margin_top=”10″ wrapper_padding_top=”0″ wrapper_padding_left=”0″ wrapper_padding_bottom=”0″ wrapper_padding_right=”30″ wrapper_bg_opacity_slider=”” id_wrapper=”elm_5a947b7b0ac45″ ]Paul Suchoski has a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Florida.  He was the co-founder of United Technologies Photonics in 1990 to commercialize integrated optics technology that he invented.  UTP was acquired by Uniphase Corporation in 1995 at which time Paul became Vice President of Uniphase responsible for the Electrooptics Product Division in Bloomfield, CT.  He oversaw this division as it ramped from 50 employees and $5 million of revenue to 750 employees and $125 million of revenue in less than five years.

Paul was recruited by Battery Ventures to become the CEO of Optium Corporation, an early-stage fiber optics company, in 2001.   Paul was able to assemble one of the strongest teams in the fiber optics business and raise over $50 million of venture capital which was fortunate as the company was founded at the beginning of the “internet busted bubble” and there were several lean years.   Optium became a publicly traded company in 2006 and soon after merged with Finisar to become the largest fiber optics company in the world.  JDSU’s and Finisar’s products are used extensively for CATV distribution, telecommunications, data communications, and various industrial/sensing applications.

Since 2005, Paul has been an advisor, board member, and angel investor in various high-tech and biotech companies.   During this time, Paul developed and taught an Entrepreneurship class for five years to high school juniors and seniors, served on the University of Florida’s Engineering Department Advisory Board, and was the Program Manager at the TiE Rockies Accelerator Program.

Paul is currently COO of Safe Rx, a Denver-based start-up company that is marketing Locking Prescription Vials (LPVs) that prevent unauthorized access to prescription and over-the-counter drugs.  LPVs are proving to be highly effective at reducing teen pilfering of prescription opioids as well as pediatric poisonings associated with accidental ingestion of medication and supplements by young children.  Opioid overdoses claimed more than 64,000 American lives in 2016 and teen pilfering of drugs is by far the leading gateway to this epidemic.  60,000 children under age 5 go to the ER as a result of poisoning from medication.

Paul is also a Managing Partner of Infinite Peaks Holdings which provides growth capital and expertise to Colorado-based start-ups, Safe Rx being one of their investments.   He is also an active TiE Rockies Charter Member where he is leading the Bierstadt Investment Group and mentors local entrepreneurs.[/st_text][/st_column_3][st_column_3 span=”span4″ id_wrapper=”elm_5a947b7b0b329″ ][st_spacer id_wrapper=”elm_5a947b7b0af91″ ][/st_spacer][st_image image_file=”http://www.infinitepeaksholdings.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/bio-paul-suchoski.jpg” image_file_button=”” image_size_wrapper=”” image_size=”full” wrapper_padding_top=”0″ wrapper_padding_left=”0″ wrapper_padding_bottom=”0″ wrapper_padding_right=”0″ wrapper_bg_opacity_slider=”” id_wrapper=”elm_5a947b7b0b314″ ][/st_image][/st_column_3][/st_row_3][/st_column_2][/st_row_2][/st_column][/st_row][st_row div_padding_left=”10″ div_padding_right=”10″ id_wrapper=”elm_5a947b7b0b980″ ][st_column span=”span12″ id_wrapper=”elm_5a947b7b0b976″ ][st_page_embed el_title=”Footer” page=”footer” wrapper_padding_top=”0″ wrapper_padding_left=”0″ wrapper_padding_bottom=”0″ wrapper_padding_right=”0″ wrapper_bg_opacity_slider=”” id_wrapper=”elm_5a947b7b0b963″ ][/st_page_embed][/st_column][/st_row]
