Service, repair and construction businesses platform MyTaskit announced a newly-formed advisory board to provide strategic guidance to the company’s C-level management team, especially as it relates to the construction, property management and marine industries.

“I’m extremely excited to welcome George Bell, Frank Blake, Jr., Jim Bronstien and Sandi Finn to the MyTaskit family, and have the opportunity to leverage the full breadth of their expertise in an advisory capacity,” said Kevin Hutchinson, founder and CEO of MyTaskit, in a statement.

A 30-year veteran of growing and investing in consumer businesses, Bell has served in various capacities, including as managing director and executive in residence at venture capital and private equity firm General Catalyst Partners, and CEO at Jumptap, Upromise, Excite@Home, and Excite, which went public under his leadership as one of the Internet’s first and largest search engines. He was named Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst and Young for California and New England.

“I’ve seen the positive real-time impact MyTaskit has on companies working out in the field and have been excited watching the business grow. I’m looking forward to helping it excel further,” Bell said.

Blake is general manager of home renovation services for The Home Depot Inc., overseeing its extensive B2B services, including turnkey renovations and complete contracting solutions. Blake served as a captain in the U.S. Army during Operation Iraqi Freedom and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal.

Bronstien has spent 32 years as a marine business owner and executive. His experience includes large-scale yacht refit yards, including Rybovich, where he presided for 20 years as owner. He is currently board chairman of Saunders Yachtworks Boatyard in Gulf Shores, Alabama, owner of Marine Business Advisors, and owner of a marina management company that includes Marina Palms Boat Club and Marina in Miami.

Finn is a board member, mentor and C-level executive, who has successfully transformed corporate and consumer service industry businesses. She is president of Cross Country Home Services, a 40,000-member home repair network.

“George, Frank, Jim, and Sandi each bring a unique perspective, creating an accomplished and well-balanced advisory board across the markets MyTaskit serves,” said Hutchinson. “Their participation is sure to guide our work and contribute greatly to our continued success.”
