Mark Mahoney, Co-Founder, President
Mark has a passion for solving business challenges with technology. Since 1973, he has been involved in organized youth sports. Mark has owned sports facilities, and he has instructed and coached young athletes. In the 1980s, Mark developed Class Master, a class management system, and sold it to another company. Many previous clients asked Mark to develop another system, so he decided to build a web-based solution. The goal: to eliminate owners’ worries about data backups, updates and technical issues.
He has more than 32 years of experience in IT. Mark sits on the MIS Advisory Board for the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia. He is also a member of the National Eagle Scout Association.
Mark holds a BBA from the University of Georgia. Mark loves living in the Lake Norman area, which is near Charlotte, North Carolina, and spending time with his wife and three children. In his free time, he enjoys triathlons, water skiing and backpacking.
Mike Carper, Co-Founder, Director of Technology
Mike has a passion for developing and designing software solutions. He got his start as a software consultant in Charlotte’s banking industry in the 1990s. Mike worked with Mark at the same consulting firm. In 1997, Mike left technology consulting to co-found his first company, which developed international banking software. When that company shifted into staffing-focused consulting, Mike decided to continue developing software. Since 2000, Mike has focused on developing web applications for smaller businesses. Mike met Mark for lunch in 2004. As the saying goes, the rest is history.
Mike holds a BS degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Management Information Systems from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Mike loves developing software, playing golf, running, sailing and spending time with his wife and two children.
