On the 5th of March Jerker began his CEO World Tour with a stop in Orlando, Florida where he and Handheld US colleague Jim Rimay, visited companies such as GIS and surveying company Geo Networking and Universal. During his stay, he also managed to find time for some sightseeing.

After spending close to a week in Florida, Jerker made his way to Chicago, Illinois to link up with Handheld US colleague Frank Arico. Together they met with several companies which resulted in many interesting discussions.

During the last stop in US, Jerker teamed up with Damon Ogando as they visited companies in Seattle and San Diego.

After crossing several time zones when flying from LA to Auckland, Jerker arrived in the middle of the Volvo Ocean Race which brought back some memories to when Handheld’s rugged tablets featured in the competition.
