Steven Burhoe, CEO
Dr. Steven A. Burhoe, the new CEO of GPKE, has had an interesting career that includes teaching on the highschool, college and corporate training environments to organizing and funding start up companies. His diverse background provides a wealth of hands-on experience in various business roles such as farm manager, computer sales manager, IRS employee, GAAP consultant and an independent business consultant to over 50 emerging businesses worldwide. His strong background in education and business has helped launch over 50 new companies, by serving as a CEO, CFO or CIO of several of these companies, while helping to fund and organize many others by serving as a member of the Board of Directors.
Dr. Steven Burhoe has worked with startup companies for the last 10 years in the Orlando area alone. In addition, he has developed business plans for over 50 companies, many of which have gone public, and has served on the board of Fishox Systems, Inc. for the last five years. Furthermore, his work has supported the development of the Fishox System through the R&D cycle along with Mr. Ellis. Subsequently, he formed Oxy Agen in 2007 to take advantage of opportunities in the growing Baby Boomer markets for medical services and to take advantage of the current downturn in the restaurant industry. His turnaround associates all grew up in the restaurant business and have operated, started and sold numerous restaurants from Las Vegas to New York to Florida.
He brings to GPKE a successful history in business and operations management that will take GPKE into its next ventures: restaurant turnarounds and the developing and marketing of recreational and medical products for the Baby Boomer generation. To that end, he has set up a joint venture with Oxy Agen, Inc. and Fishox Systems, Inc. to position GPKE for the next level of growth. By applying management skills to growth-challenged restaurants through one venture, while marketing and servicing internationally manufactured medical products through the other, he is developing a company that will capitalize on the investment and purchasing trends of the Baby Boomer market.
