Connect-Worldwide CEO Eric Otto contacted several local business leaders to aid Tsunami victims in Indonesia. After hearing and watching of the wide spread disaster and monumental task facing the relief effort, Eric Otto along with O Premium Waters CEO Frank Leonesio, Swift Transportation owner Jerry Moyes, Choice Hotel International Senior VP of Marketing and Sales Wayne Wielgus all were willing to lend assistance. After international appeal for emergency food and water needs, Otto contacted Frank Leonesio, friend and CEO of O Premium Waters, to propose a plan to send water supplies directly to Indonesia. Leonesio immediately said yes and the plan quickly started to take shape. Likewise, fellow friends and business executives Moyes and Wielgus immediately offered transportation and financial assistance respectively. Otto then garnered the assistance of PATA (Pacific Asia Tourism Association) to handle the ground transportation to the worst affected areas in Indonesia.
