Disrupting Barriers For People In NeedGUERRILLA MASK MOVEMENT
Guerrilla Mask Movement is a grass-roots campaign that started by putting hospital-grade masks directly in the hands of Covid-19 front line healthcare workers NOW, bypassing administration, middlemen and red tape. We are continuing to expand beyond masks to address the most current needs.
What Drives Us
The Mission of Guerrilla Mask Movement (GMM) is to bridge corporate resources with people and causes in need. We are committed to doing all in our power to bypass red tape and expedite the process of providing help when it is most needed. Beyond following an often formulaic process, considering goals and boundaries, as entrepreneurs we think outside the box, finding ways around common obstacles to achieving the goal(s).
Within 3 days of posting a personal GoFundMe campaign, Henry Park was joined by 21 other tech executives, volunteers and community leaders to make this mission a guerrilla movement that follows a Kaizen approach to daily iterations for operational efficiency to meet the demands of our healthcare workers in this rare and challenging supply and demand arbitrage laden global market for medical grade masks.

Justin G. Decker is the Chief Digital and Innovations Officer at ATMECS where he is responsible for customer initiatives as a trusted partner advisor for projects requiring seasoned advice in the areas of technology strategy, adoption, budgeting and deployment (CTO/CIO), customers who need pre-sales advice and ideas on how to go about complex system build-outs, migrations, and as a technical architect for both major internal and external projects.

He also helps design, communicate and implement (as needed) the change management strategies to help in these matters – as this is often the most difficult part of major technology projects and based on having had the experience in and ultimate accountability for many such projects in his career. The starting points can be anywhere from on-prem completely, to already in the cloud and struggling with costs, management strategies, governance, security and the rest related to product, product delivery and product support.
