Matthew Graczyk (CEO) has been a serial entrepreneur for 23 years with experience in both large and early stage firms, building his own companies or businesses within larger firms. With six public-company exits under his belt, he has had P&L responsibility for seven companies, managing groups as large as 115 highly skilled information technology professionals and annual revenues of as much as $45 million, including C-level experience helping lead a 500- person public company with $75 million in annual revenues.
Matthew sold his first company, Zygot Computer, to Camelot Corporation, a public company, in 1994 and was a principal contributor growing two subsequent early stage businesses into public companies (Pilot Network Services and Digital Evolution/US Interactive), turning around a fourth public company (VDI Multimedia/Point.360), executing a reverse-merger into a fifth public company (Kreido Laboratories/Kreido Biofuels) and selling his last company (Zubican) to Inuvo, a public company, which is when he started iCrumz. In all, he has helped generate more than $1.5 billion in gains for investors.
Matthew received his Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration/Finance with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship from Loyola Marymount University in 1989. He received the Conrad Hilton Distinguished Entrepreneur Award in 2007 and was inducted into Loyola Marymount University's Entrepreneur's Wall of Honor in 2010 (video).
Glen Ihrig (CTO) is a veteran engineer with over 30 years of experience, including 22 years in software development. His breadth of knowledge and experience encompasses just about every aspect of software development conceivable. His engineering experience spans the spectrum from building and programming 4-bit microprocessors from discreet components to silicon wafer fabrication.
Having built software applications using about a dozen computer languages and databases, Glen has experience in the full technology stack of development from embedded systems to web applications and servers to clients.
In all this experience, one of the projects Glen is most proud of was conceiving, developing and perhaps more-importantly, 'selling' to top management, a bonus program for technical field engineers, which produced a 250% increase in both departmental revenue and engineers' compensation.
