In this episode of the Decoding Excellence Show, I'm speaking with Jim Garofalo, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for KINEXON. This show is a first as we begin to spotlight innovative companies who are leading the sports performance industry. On the show, we discuss Jim's background, his role at KINEXON, the specific company's vision and market scope for wearable technologies, the introduction of KINEXON's SafeZone, and speculation to where Jim believes the sports performance technology sector is heading.

This show was absolutely awesome! 🔥🔥🔥
