Bill is the guy to talk to if you're interested in partnering with Full Slate. He earned his stripes at Seattle tech companies like Onyx Software and Qpass, where he played crucial roles in product development and management as well as business and international operations. He has a combined eleven years of consulting experience with Andersen (now Accenture) and Point B, and has led projects from strategy development to process improvement to planning and oversight of major system implementations for blue chip companies including Starbucks, Boeing, Microsoft, PEMCO Insurance, Horizon Air and The Grameen Foundation. He earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University.
Greg built it. He's the architect behind Full Slate's software-as-a-service (SaaS) and leads design and development of the application. Greg is a serial entrepreneur; he served concurrently as "Interim CTO" at several early stage software start-ups such as Socrata (formerly Blist) and Optify, and previously co-founded two others: QL2 and AdRelevance. He's advised and consulted for countless more, including Gist (acquired by RIM) and the portfolio companies of Monster Venture Partners. He started his career as a lead developer at NetBot, a commercial spin-off of a research project at the University of Washington that produced the Metacrawler search engine and one of the first comparison shopping agents. Needless to say, Greg holds a number of patents for web-based software and computer applications.
Chris came up with the idea for Full Slate and enlisted the rest of the team to make it happen. Now she drives the product roadmap and marketing programs (including building this website). Chris has been managing and selling web-based services for over twelve years. Prior to starting Full Slate, she was the vice president of marketing at a venture-backed start-up that enabled consumers to move media between the web and their mobile phones. As a product manager at MSN Entertainment, Chris ran a subscription-based Internet radio service and helped launch a music download store. She was also the senior manager of membership sales at Classmates Online and is a named inventor on a patented system to measure and analyze online advertising (now part of Nielsen Online). She holds a BBA in Marketing from the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
Patrick handles the money and keeps things running like a well-oiled machine. He's our go-to guy to get things done. He's so efficient that he somehow managed to be acting CFO at multiple start-ups simultaneously, including Zettics and Socrata. Later-stage tech companies also have benefited from his leadership - financial and otherwise. He was instrumental in financing a turn-around at Qpass (originally an e-commerce platform that morphed into the predominant payment mechanism for mobile content), which later sold to Amdocs (a public company) for $275M. He co-founded and raised venture capital at another e-commerce pioneer called Oralis, a dental supply website acquired by VerticalNet (another public company). Patrick also did a stint as director of finance at Western Union and as a CPA at Ernst & Young. He has a BS in Accounting from Colorado State University.
