Local Businessman hosts Mayoral Candidate Chris Bell
Local businessman CEO of Amplified Solutions, Rob Todd opened the doors to his new luxury condo house near Memorial Park for his long time friend and Mayoral Candidate Chris Bell. “I am thrilled about my new home. Well, most importantly I get to walk my girls to school which was a high priority for me. The quality time for us is beyond value,” shares Rob.
The architecture and artwork of the house expresses where Todd is in life, so it’s a combination of luxury and comfort, adult and kid friendly, artistic and urban. The art is primarily urban art with a smattering of icons by the late Jude and a few fauvist pieces by Carmen Squella. Rob Todd has been recently making headlines as his company Amplified Solutions ranks on this year’s Houston Business Journal’s Fast 100 List.
In Houston, the company’s main focus has been in installing distributed antenna systems (DAS, for short), which is a system of antennas that amplify cellular and Wi-Fi signals within a closed space. The company is currently installing such a system at Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center as well as at its satellite facilities.
For those of who might not know, Rob, who is also a former Houston City Council member hosted a fundraiser event for Chris Bell. New neighbors and old friends gathered at Todd’s house for an evening soiree of light bites and bubbles. Chris Bell however showed up a bit late due to a prior commitment at India House. Bell’s wife Allison explained about Todd’s and Bell’s long time friendship and she also spoke about Chris’s passion for journalism and writing.
“It was wonderful having the event for Chris to help raise some money and, honestly, I wanted him and Allison to see the house. I’ve known Chris for nearly twenty years since he was a student at the South Texas College of Law and working days as a reporter for KTRH. Like any good journalist, he has mastered the art of communication which is a requisite for being in a leadership role,” explains Rob.
Amongst the supporters were: Mickey Altman, Joe Martin, Dinah Lin, Val Perkins, Chris Di Ferrante, Julie Baran Bachelor, Leslie Wall Hassan, Felix Pacheco, and Andi Ruiz.
