As many of you know, I ran an MSP on ConnectWise for many years, which is how I came up with the idea for SmileBack. These last three years of building a product that I’m very proud of with a team that I love, achieving milestones like becoming the number one-rated app in the ConnectWise marketplace and surpassing $1 million in annual recurring revenue, have been wonderful. It also feels like the prefect time for a break, to hand over the reins of managing the company to someone I know well and trust, and to come back refreshed a little while from now after an exciting round-the-world trip.
I’m very pleased to announce that Ryan Grant Little, a seasoned tech entrepreneur and good friend of many years, took over my role as Managing Director last month. Ryan’s career has spanned everything from building a charitable donations platform that will cross $1 billion in total transactions this year to pioneering work in social entrepreneurship and impact investing, not to mention a handful of tech and cleantech startups to boot. He’s got good instincts, lots of experience, and a huge amount of energy to take SmileBack to the next level.
