Founded as Ken Ben NYC, LLC in 2017 by Mike Gordon with the initial goal of winning the New York City Immobilization contract, RISETEK is focused on offering our booting solution to cities and universities across the globe.
Mike Gordon, President, spent the last decade working with New York City Department of Finance on their scofflaw program. Mike’s company provided towing services for New York City prior to the implementation of a booting program by the City in 2012, and continued on as a towing subcontractor for the program until November 1, 2019, when Ken Ben NYC, LLC was awarded the immobilization contract under the name RISNYC, LLC. Mike had a vision for how to improve many aspects of the old booting program, starting with the boot itself. Mike designed the Intelliboot with multiple US patents to address many of the shortcomings of the existing self-releasing boot.
