Matts (Working) Life History
|Matt is in his late forties. Hes been at this computer stuff since 1975, when he graduated with a BS in Math and Computer Science from the University of Illinois, Chicago.|
Sun Microsystems in 1986. His intentions
were to stay for four, oh, maybe five years at Sun and then move on. He
stayed for nine years (to the day!).
Imonics West, Per-Sé (neé Medaphis, now GE)Just to keep his life interesting and his friends confused, Matt moved from the systems side to the applications side. He went from building systems components (the bicycle kit) to actually putting them together into working, useful systems (the bicycle). That was essentially what happened when he became General Manager of Imonics West, a systems integration company owned by Per-Sé.
And that was quite an education.
scheduling.com (neé JPM Group)
In August, 1998, Matt became cofounder of what would become scheduling.com. It all started as the JPM Group, an incubator sponsored by NEA and Interwest. The name of the company came from the initials of the founders: John, Paul and Matt. Not coincidentally, we had worked together as the executive team of Atwork. After investigating many business opportunities, scheduling.com was born as an Application Service Provider (ASP) that provides Access Management solutions to acute care hospitals, ambulatory clinics, physician offices, providers and consumers. Scheduling.com introduced web-native technology and a dramatically different business model to healthcare (e.g., we charge by the drink, not zillions of dollars up front).
Scheduling.com is a different .com in that we are fulfilling
a real need and we have a solid plan to make a profit. We used to have
to apologize for that, but not any more .
VCs and corporate investors have put $43M into the business.
Stay tuned ...
PS/ Matts happily married (to Ana). They have two boys.
