Titan - About Us
Neal S. Lachman

Principal Founder | Chairman | CEO

Neal is the principal founder of Titans World, which he envisioned as a consolidator, builder, developer, and provider of ultra-exclusive, ultra-luxurious, and ultra-convenient services and experiences.

Neal has more than 32 years of business experience, including 26 years in finance and technology. He is a thoroughly experienced, energetic, and bold investor who is “cut from entrepreneurial cloth.” Neal is also a pragmatic and strategic planner with a long-term business philosophy.

Neal is a telecoms pioneer and an outspoken entrepreneur; his opinion (often conveyed through White Papers since 2000) has earned him the respect from one part of the industry, as well as severe dislike from another part.

Neal prides himself in having correctly called most of the telecom and technology trends and developments since 2000, often contrarian to commonly understood trends.

Track record: Pioneering | Doing | Daring

Neal pioneered and evangelized, along with his younger brother Aniel, and Gregory Nemitz, at the predecessor company of Angie Communications, as the sole (independent) company, the Fiber-to-the-Home/Fiber-to-the-Premises industry - since early 2000.

Active in the residential fiber industry since 2000, Neal sponsored and presented at the first major Fiber To The Home (FTTH) gathering in the world, which took place at the Rotterdam Theater, the Netherlands, in March 2002. As such, Neal (along with Gregory Nemitz, another team member) is widely recognized as one of the earliest pioneers in the now global FTTH industry.

Neal founded Angie Communications/Oy Networks, the world’s largest telecom startup that is specializing in large scale next-gen telecom infrastructure, Artificial Intelligence, x Reality, and futuristic integrated services and applications. He also pioneered the concept of Ultra-Intelligent cities in 2016, which concerns networking beyond Smart Cities.
