Jason Karp – Allerio

Last fall when he and a few colleagues launched the mobile technologies company Allerio in Duluth, Minnesota, Jason Karp could foresee the need to take telemedicine to a higher level. After all, it’s part of what sparked his company in the first place. What he couldn’t know was how intense that need would become. Then […]

Adam Glick – Intercom

Finding a website is easy. Finding your way around one? Maybe not so much. But wait, there’s a message bubble in the lower right corner—someone is offering to help you with everything from a customer support question to making a purchase decision. Customer-messaging technology is getting better all the time, with live chat, bots and […]

Jordan Gurevich – vMOX

Growth-wise, this new year is looking more and more like a hockey stick to Jordan Gurevich. General counsel of vMOX in Roslyn Heights, New York, Gurevich anticipates his employer sustaining steady, organic expansion largely from its ability to save corporate clients a fortune in mobile telecommunication costs. Think of your own family’s monthly cellular plan, […]

Adam Wergeles – Leaf Group

These days, aspiring artists needn’t live in a garret (or always go hungry) to stick to their craft. Need proof? Look no further than Saatchi Art, a website that connects a community of more than 100,000 emerging artists from 100 countries to a global network of art buyers. It’s a new marketplace medium with millions […]

Matt Bell – FTI Consulting

Matt Bell’s interests have always been oriented toward building businesses. As a student of modest means at Oklahoma Christian University, he ran a gutter cleaning operation and a snow cone stand on the side. Never one to shy away from a challenge, as a freshman he cajoled a fifth-year senior to go out with him […]

Matthew P. Zinn – 8×8 Inc.

In retrospect, it seems to have worked out just fine that Matthew P. Zinn missed out on a summer associate position at a firm in Washington, D.C. after his first year at George Washington University Law School. A recession had lessened the demand for budding lawyers. But the time Zinn would spend painting houses in […]

Marc Jenkins – Asurion

“Transform the way the company works” was the directive given to Marc Jenkins when he arrived at work in January of 2018. Not that Nashville-based Asurion wasn’t working well; the privately held technology solutions provider being a successful $8 billion operation. But there’s always room for improvement in the areas of financial management, process improvement […]

Rod Rummelsburg – AireSpring

It was a call Rod Rummelsburg recalls clearly. A young girl was missing; law enforcement needed an internet service provider address from his company, AireSpring, to follow a lead on where they might find her. The calls from law enforcement are not uncommon—as AireSpring’s general counsel, Rummelsburg’s legal team created a standardized form to answer […]
