Mark Mahoney, Co-Founder, President
Mark Mahoney’s passion is solving business problems with technology. Mark has been involved in organized youth sports since 1973. He has instructed and coached young athletes and he has owned sports facilities. Mark developed Class Master, a class management system, in the 80’s and sold it to another company. Due to the large number of previous clients asking Mark to develop another system, he decided to build a web-based application to eliminate the need for owners to worry about database backups, software updates and technical issues.
Mark has over 32 years of experience in information technology. Mark serves on the MIS Advisory Board for the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia. He also belongs to the National Eagle Scout Association.
Mark holds a BBA from the University of Georgia and enjoys triathlons, water-skiing and backpacking. Mark loves living in the Lake Norman Area near Charlotte and spending time with his wife Cheryl and three children, Alice Ann, Christian and Katie Ann.
Mike Carper, Co-Founder, Director of Technology
Mike’s passion is designing and developing software applications. In the early 90’s, Mike started out as a software consultant in Charlotte’s rapidly growing banking industry and worked with Mark at the same consulting firm. In 1997, Mike left the consulting world to co-found his first company developing international banking software. While this company transitioned into more staffing-based consulting, Mike wanted to continue developing software with dreams of building a product. Since 2000, Mike has turned his attention to developing web applications for smaller businesses where the impacts are immediate, strong and often personal. In 2004, Mike met Mark for lunch and the rest is, as they say, history.
Mike holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Management Information Systems from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Mike enjoys developing software (no, really!), running, playing golf, sailing on the lake and spending time with his wife Christy and their two children.
