SAN ANTONIO (August 2, 2016) Geekdom has announced the hire of its new Chief Operating Officer, David Garcia, Jr. No stranger to the tech industry, Garcia takes the helm at Geekdom after eleven years as Apple’s Senior Manager of Retail Stores in San Antonio.
 
After seven months as serving in the role of Interim COO, Luke Owen will transition into the newly-developed position of Entrepreneur in Residence to oversee the Geekdom Startup Programs, including Startup Next, Startup Weekend, 3 Day Startup, and the new mentorship program, Mentor Madness.
 
Garcia was born and raised in San Antonio and is a graduate of the University of Texas at San Antonio, where he earned both his Bachelor of Business Management and his teaching certification in biology. In addition to working with Apple, where he was responsible for recruitment, hiring, talent development, and career paths for team members, Garcia has also held leadership positions with Sears and Gateway. At Gateway, he implemented the rollout of the store within a store concept in partnership with OfficeMax.
 
Owen is also a San Antonio native. He worked for ten years with Rackspace and co-founded his own startup, Trueability, along with other partners. He also holds the role of co-managing director for Startup Next San Antonio, the recently launched accelerator program for local startups. While he will still remain at Geekdom in his new role of Entrepreneur in Residence, he will also be starting a new San Antonio-based business venture in the near future.
 
“As David enters into his new role and Luke transitions into our newly-created role, we are excited in both regards because it means growth for Geekdom, the tech district, and the city,” said Geekdom CEO Lorenzo Gomez. “The foundation of the tech district is strong and flourishing, and there is great opportunity ahead for San Antonians.”
