Reid Lappin

As founder & CEO, I direct Vokal’s day-to-day operations—delivering enterprise mobility solutions and quality mobile apps that create value and drive our partners’ business growth. Under my leadership, I've grown the company from a team of three to over 50 skilled developers, designers, and mobile-minded experts.

What drives you?

I have always been motivated to get ahead, to do something different and make a lasting impact. It all starts with family, friends, and living life to the fullest. Life is too short to waste. We take the time that we have to create wealth and value in many ways. I'm driven to produce results, drive growth, learn from mistakes, and be part of a great team. I hate to lose more than I like to win.

Who or what inspires you?

I am inspired by my family, especially my wife, mom, and dad. I am also inspired by Michael Jordan, the greatest competitor of all time. I choose to focus on the good in the world and believe in businesses' and technology's ability to drive that. Getting there takes strong leadership and teamwork.

What’s something surprising about you?

I went from being an organic farmer to starting a digital agency. I knew from a very young age I wanted to run a company, and I have always loved building and leading teams. More importantly, I prefer to always be in sweats.
