Tom Kinneman has proven (again) what he’s made of…100% iron. On Sunday, November 3, Tom won first place at Ironman Florida in his age group of 64 triathletes, finishing in 10:40:27 (impressive stats: 1:12 for the swim; 5:28 on the bike; 3:46 for the run).
What an extraordinary achievement…Quad Technologies has been nominated as one of the top 26 finalists in the MassChallenge 2013. Imagine making the final cut in a global competition in which 128 finalists were selected out of a pool of more than 1,200 candidates. NSIV is so proud to have Quad Technologies as a biotech member.
NSIV’s COO Tom Kinneman is proof that the grueling training that goes into conditioning for triathlons pays off.

The PruHealth World Triathlon Grand Final is considered to be the pinnacle of triathlon competitions across the world (www.worldtrilondon.com/event_info). Congratulations, Tom!
