Welcome to the Executives Association of Long Beach Member Directory

The long standing slogan of the association has been "Business is our Business". The Executives Association of Long Beach (EALB) was founded in 1922. It is an association of Long Beach business executives, each of whom represents his or her respective firm at the management level.

The Long Beach Executives Association is a member of the International Executives Association, a worldwide group of similar associations. It is not a service club, a social group or fraternal order. The EALB is a networking group for business owners and high level executives. It has but one unique objective: to capture the natural bond of common interest which exists between business executives and by regular weekly meetings, develop and enjoy a brand of fellowship conducive to the creation of additional and profitable business for all its members.

It does not require its members to patronize each other, but it does provide opportunities for each member to promote their products or services and it can open doors that otherwise are closed to desired business. Members of the EALB often consider the association as an extension of their own business or profession.

On Monday, October 15th the Executives Association of Long Beach met for weekly luncheon to hear from Nathan Whittacre of Stimulus Technologies. 

Nathan’s talk gave us insight into his I.T. company, Stimulus Technologies, both of which started from humble beginnings. Nathan grew up in Nevada and started his first business at the age of 12 by running a candy stand from his house. In high school he worked at a computer company that created home and business computers. After the business closed down, he decided to start his own computer business with his brother and father in 1995. By 2002 Nathan’s company had moved out of the garage to a much larger location in Henderson. Nathan bought out his brother and father to take sole ownership over the company and renamed it Stimulus Technologies. 

As his company began to service multiple customers throughout Southern California, Nathan decided to open another location in Long Beach, California. This location recently opened in February 2018. 

When Nathan is not working his likes to do outdoor activities like hiking and camping. He is also a tri-athlete. Nathan has been married 17 years and has 5 children. 

Stimulus Technologies is a managing I.T. company which means that they run all of the networking, server, and computer infrastructures. Stimulus Technologies looks to partner with businesses directly so they can be fully supported by a company from a I.T. side of things, whether it be cloud or off-site backup or dealing with technical support with other vendors within the company. Stimulus Technologies also maintains a dedicated support team to assist your business with a personal team of I.T. specialists and not someone different every time. The servers and cloud hosting are located in house so they do not have any third-party issues. Stimulus Technologies services companies with 10 to 15 employees and primarily works with car dealerships, CPA’s, law firms, dental and medical companies. 

When looking for an I.T. company don’t look for just any computer specialist, look for an I.T. company that wants to partner with you and take care of all of your I.T. needs. Nathan and Stimulus Technologies will take care of your business technology infrastructure with personalized service and care.

We will be at The Grand on October 22nd to hear from Jim Mills-Winkler of Waddell and Reed.
