Gabriel “Gabe” Lowy
TechTonics started as a blog in February 2013. After a successful 15-year run as an award-winning tech analyst (Forbes.com Best Analysts in America and The Wall Street Journal Best of the Street), I wanted to write about how technology connects with strategy and finance – without the encumbrances of stock picking or compliance. Other sites started to pick up my posts or asked me to be a guest contributor. That’s how my first client found me.
A CFO of a tech company contacted me and said, “I don’t think we’re telling our story as effectively as we could be, and that it reflects in our valuation. Is this something you can help us with?” I said, “Of course”, and the investor relations consulting business was born.
Synthesizing complex concepts and technologies into easily understood strategic messaging has always been my expertise and value-add. I’ve had the privilege to advise a number of tech companies – both large and small. While I worked on “the Street,” I was differentiated by my longer-term and more strategic approach. At TechTonics, bringing fundamental research and market analysis to the IR process has been a key differentiator.
I have published over 1,200 reports and articles on different sectors and companies in the tech industry. I’m a featured contributor to APMDigest, BigDataNews, Dataconomy, DevOpsDigest, EnterpriseCIO Forum, icrunchdataNews and TABBForum. My tech roots trace to the beginning of my career as an Andersen Consulting COBOL programmer who rose quickly to manager. I went to Wall Street in 1986, starting at Drexel Burnham. Over the years I worked at other larger firms, including Bear, Stearns & Co., Oppenheimer, and Mizuho Securities. The entrepreneur in me also took me to several smaller firms, such as Collins Stewart and Blaylock & Partners. I hold an MBA in Strategy and a B.S. in Marketing, both from New York University’s Stern School of Business.
