    I was placed on immediate hold with music playing that sounded along the lines of The Girl from Ipanema, and after about 12 minutes somebody picked up the phone. I asked if their company had a Twitter account and they said no, then I asked if the company name was AskTheDoctor and she also said no.

    Not sure if Dan is still tied in with Wolfe but if you check for Wolfe Trahan you see Dan Galves as a founding member. Currently Dan Galves is head of investor relations at Fisker.
