The 4 Syndicate: Gary and Keaton
Category : Meet the Team
The story of The 4 Syndicate goes back in time over 20 years. A small town, few opportunities, and a dynamic duo. Years ago in Silsbee, TX located 20 minutes east of Beaumont, there were very few opportunities. In reality, still to this day Silsbee’s market is primarily retail, woodwork, fabrication, and welding. The education is lacking, the opportunity within that system is low, and the educators pump out fresh batches of students that are focused on the generic job positions. It was within this beautiful small town with little opportunity in advancement that the founders of The 4 Syndicate were born.
Gary and Keaton have known each other from that town. Over years of living there, the team at the head of the world’s most powerful applications, spent years doing what normal kids do. Camping, hunting, fishing, etc… These 2 had each other’s backs for many years. Over time they began to think of their future. What would be in store for them? Although both had different ideas of a few goals, they both had the same overall goal. Create a business that will take the lead in a market. It was over time that the decision was made to create this business in the world of Information Technology. Gary and Keaton began honing their skills on what they needed to know in order to compete with the top companies. Over time, both began creating and designing powerful ideas and learning the science/art of software engineering. This was truly the start of a new world.
The pair separated briefly during Keaton’s time spent in the Army, and his work at the Sheriff’s Department. Gary went to college and began building the business with Keaton over the phone. Coming at the end of 2013, the dynamic duo once again paired and began their plans. Starting with building the Social Network BlabAway, designing a new framework, and looking for potential ventures. Marketing, accounting, and investing time and money became priorities. The team moved their location to Dallas, TX where they met Jeff Cline, a wealthy investor with 20+ years of experience in operating several companies. With the help of Jeff The 4 Syndicate was born. These 3 went to work to start pushing out applications such as Tipey, Incline.Media, and designing sites such as KandeeJohnson.com
These applications are on the web, google play, and the app store. The 4 Syndicate is coming into the market, and is coming in loud. With several businesses reaching out to them after only a few months with applications on the market, it’s no wonder The 4 Syndicate can say it is the best in software engineering.
