Chief Executive Officer
Howard Diamond has a long history of building companies. He took a startup, Course Technology, from 0 to $75 Million in five years. He built Corporate Software, the largest software reseller for Microsoft and IBM, from $500 Million in revenue to $1.2 Billion in six years. He was subsequently Chairman of the Information Services Group at Level3, where he ran a $2.7 Billion technology group and orchestrated the largest merger ever in the software reseller business. Now, Howard has come out of retirement to be the CEO of MobileDay where he intends to make MobileDay his biggest success yet. Just try to stop him.
Chief Financial Officer
Larry manages the finances for MobileDay. What more do you really need to know? Here’s more anyway. Larry’s love of team sports has instilled in him an appreciation of teamwork, responsibility, and the drive to win, especially when it comes to debating contract details and making key financial decisions. He’s enough of a sports nut that he would be coaching and mentoring kids through sports if he weren’t minding the till at MobileDay. In a past job, he claims to have literally counted beans as an auditor for PriceWaterhouse. And speaking of beans, he was a waiter at Casa Bonita when he was a kid. So watch out – he knows how to handle any kind of crazy.
Chief Technology Officer
Dustin talks faster than an auctioneer and that’s probably because he’s thinking faster than anyone else at MobileDay. He also runs fast, hitting the trails with his son whenever he can. He has, in fact, put in over 2,000 miles on a BOB stroller training for races. As the first technical member of the MobileDay team, Dustin’s contributions have included architecture, leading the engineering team, design, writing much of the code, testing, being a scrum master, providing IT support, deploying and managing cloud infrastructure and operations, spending lots of time learning and teaching, and wearing plenty of other hats along the way. He loves building products in a way that’s clean and simple yet rigorous enough to scale. He loves doing all these things very, very fast.
Senior Director of Marketing
Jodi brings her brilliance when creating world class marketing from nothing, and quickly. She expertly conveys MobileDay’s value to customers with impact and clarity. With a particular love of her family, she was raised with a strong determination and work ethic, priding herself on breaking down any barriers that stand in the way of achieving her aim. Besides taking on the world with her marketing prowess, she loves to cook, laugh, and enjoy the outdoors. Her goal is to live so that at the end of her life, she can say herself, “I want nothing more”.
Senior Director of Product
Anthony makes sure that MobileDay has products that customers love. Buried inside that funny guy with the creative eye and storytelling prowess of a filmmaker, is a technical nerd who built some of the world’s first ecommerce platforms, line by line. Anthony comes from a big Italian family and has four kids of his own, so in addition to believing that fine wine and prosciutto will make everything better, and being able to make the world’s best espresso in his sleep, he knows how to listen to lots of loud voices, prioritize and make decisions like the godfather, and communicate so that everyone is happy.
Senior Director of Development
Taking the mantra, “be the change you wish to see in the world” to heart, Jessica wants to encourage more girls and women to get involved in programming and technology. She believes that coding is a universal language and can be used to connect people around the world. At MobileDay, Jessica brings technical leadership and project management to our app development team. Having founded tech startups in the past, her drive to creatively solve difficult problems also drives her passion for app development. And when she’s not building great apps, she’s building great forts in the woods with her kids.
UX/UI Creative Director
After a stint touring full time with an eclectic rock band in the ’90s, Jackson cut off his ponytail to focus his career on design. At MobileDay, he is responsible for all things creative from designing the subtle nuances of user interaction within the app to approving the look and tone of a company email. He believes that user experience IS a company’s brand, so when he was tapped for the lead UX/UI role for MobileDay, he immediately embraced the entire experience life cycle from the first impression of a potential user on Facebook to installing the app and joining a call with One-Touch. To satisfy his insatiable appetite for all things creative, he is an abstract fine art photographer and plays hot gypsy swing guitar in a quartet.
Director of Customer Success
For Elaine, “it’s all about the journey.” She has sought professional and personal adventures around the world, whether hanging from cliffs in Switzerland or biking across the Sichuan province in China. It’s this sort of drive that propels her career and energizes the success she brings to MobileDay customers. An investment analyst in a previous life, she deeply understands the pain MobileDay solves for business people on the go. She lives for the high-fives she gets from happy customers when she solves that pain. Success!
