Press Release on February 25, 2019
uGetTogether.com, a user-driven club event hosting website, was created in response to mounting frustration with the popular meeting site for groups, Meetup. As functionality and customer service decreased, the number of group organizers sharing their frustrations on message boards increased. This led to a search for an alternative club event hosting website. Unable to find one, Rick Dural, Eric Kassan and Joseph Krincek created uGetTogether.com.
Outdoor enthusiasts in their spare time, the team has a track record of success working together. Dural, Kassan and Krincek designed, implemented and manufactured the industry-leading social media selfie kiosk as partners in uPost Media.
The uGetTogether team is committed to creating the best user-driven club event hosting platform that includes and enhances features clubs and organizations want while placing a priority on customer service at a lower cost. For more information visit www.uGetTogether.com.
Mr. Dural has delivered hundreds of millions of dollars in direct, channel, ISV & OEM sales revenue for companies including Intel, iSpheres, NetBoost, Answersoft, Retix and Perkin-Elmer. In addition, Mr. Dural was Director of Strategic Investments for Networking and Communications for Intel Capital, the Venture Capital arm of Intel. He has extensive active Board of Director experience and has served on 7 boards. His unique and results focused leadership style has enabled him to provide unprecedented revenue results while at the same time ensuring the highest customer satisfaction.
In his spare time, he enjoys several activities, but particularly mountaineering where he is an active member of the Las Vegas Mountaineers Club. When the club started using Meetup in 2009, it was a great tool. But in recent years, it has become more and more difficult to use. In some ways, it was like they actively tried to make users' lives difficult by changing workflows and removing functionality without notice, much less consultation.
Now Eric's professional and personal interests have become united as he works to build the best system for organizing group activities here at uGetTogether.com.
For fun, Joseph loves to play league tennis, hiking, camping and mountain biking. He also enjoys volunteering as a youth soccer coach in his local community. In his free time, he likes to travel with his wife and two daughters to National Parks and visit family in Maine. As Director of Operations at uPost Media, Inc., the parent company of uGetTogether.com, Joseph combines his passions with his professional expertise.
