"Now is the time to be part of this company because we really have a great management team in place and all of the right ingredients to achieve our very aggressive goals. We want to shift the way consumers are making purchases online to make it very simple, entertaining and exciting far beyond the purchase process."
Outside of the technology industry, Goldberg avidly volunteers his technology services with several non-profit organizations and companies, as well as being actively involved with the Boy Scouts of America.
