Is Derek Dotson stil COO of Innvo Labs?
« on: August 07, 2012, 09:44:19 PM »

Have not heard much about Derek Dotson lately.  Any ideas what direction Innvo Labs are going with Pleo?

As far as I know, Derek Dotson and the US office are no longer operational and Innvo is now run from the main office in Hong Kong.  I would appreciate confirmation of that if anyone can?  :-\

Derek Dotson is no longer employed by Innvo.
There are no USA employees of Innvo any more.

Thanks for letting us know . That is crappy though... :( who is the COO now? I guess that means importing RB is going to be a lot MORE expensive than it was... When I got my original BAby it only cost me $11.25 for 3 day UPS delivery. I can't imagine the cost now..........if you live in Europe or there abouts, closer than US it will cost a lot less. I guess second hand or used Pleo Rb are the only way I am going to get another RB.

              Does anyone know where Derek Dotson went? Also who is the person who keeps in contact with Bob the Pleo Forums now? I mean I know or presume that both Mike and Degers had contact with Innvo Labs directly and through Derek Dotson for several years. Is there a contact person now or are we  on our own? I kind of feel the way you feel when a favorite teacher retires or leaves...that empty unsure feeling...kind of weird. I wish I spoke Chinese so I could communicate better. Sometimes on the Facebook page where PleoWorld fan page is, I don't completly understand everything they are saying, but most of it gets communicated.
             I hope there is a new person who supports Bob the Pleo Forums, at least in spirit......am I alone in feeling this way..? :( :-[               RWM

How long did the TNT shipping take to get your Pleo to the US?  I am agree with the shipping costs too, it's mad!  You can select the airmail option and it's only $50! :p

Hi, Vinosh! If I am not mistaken, Derek Dotson is no longer CEO of Innvo Labs. I think he was over the uS branch of the company which no longer exists. Anyone else please correct me if I'm wrong about any of this.

It is a real shame that Derek Dotson is gone and also that the US division in Nevada is gone. Derek Dotson did a great job in my opinon of representing the company and being out there to talk and display Pleo and Pleo Rb. I think Innvo labs has gone down in at least customer relations since his departure.  :(

          I talked to Derek Dotson on Two separate occasions on the phone. The first time was right before Pleo rb came out for Christmas 2010. He actually took my order and answered many questions I had. He told me several things about interactions between Pleo and Pleo rb and we talked about some of the pleo videos I have done. He also was very nice and when ordering my very first pleo, Baby, he added a couple of Food packs with NO CHARGE.! He said it was a Christmas present! ;D( Only Derek Dotson would do that. I told him how much I loved Pleo and I think knowing how many I had at the time,( 10 at least...) that he believed I was a #1 fan..( he would probably think I am crazy now with 28..............perhaps I am... )
           

         I wish Derek Dotson were still associated with Innvo Labs, but I wish him success in whatever he chooses to do.  :bouquet1:  RWM  :cat-hug: and the Pleo township of the REdwoods P:)

I miss him too although we never actually spoke to one another. I loved all the videos he did for Innvo Labs. I also loved the interview he did with Degers for ever and five years ago. I also miss the US branch. I only had to pay fifty dollars for shipping if I remember right.
