After the Dot Com boom and bust took out my company Genuity, I was on the search again for a new job. My friend Scott worked in Sales at Gomez and introduced me to the manager there. It look a few months (okay half a year) to get the job running the Benchmark practice. This was a position we both constructed and were excited to bring to the customers. I was part product manager, part consultant, and part company spokesman. Customers bought the benchmark product to size up their Internet Performance against their peers.
