what's in a name

The name Persistence Media was derived from the commercial fishing vessel Persistence. Company founder Gene Landry owned the offshore lobsterboat in a previous life before earning a BA in Communications at the University of Southern Maine in the mid-eighties. Persistence has always been one of Landry's strongest business traits and is the core of the company's philosophy and success. The 42-foot Persistence is still fishing today out of Portland, Maine.
