Arpan Shah - Chief Executive Officer
After founding a profitable Web design business in college, Arpan fell in love with entrepreneurship.
Toward the end of college, Arpan saw how large of a problem wasteful printing was. After being dissatisfied by other solutions, Arpan asked himself, "How can we use simple technology to solve the problem of wasteful printing?" The result, of course, was PrintEco! Today Arpan is our CEO and is responsible for the strategic direction of PrintEco, as well as making sure that we continue to innovate and deliver value to our customers and other stakeholders.
Tom Patterson - Chief Technology Officer
Tom has been writing software since high school. He’s what you might call, a "killer," because when technical problems come near him they don’t stand a chance. Tom spent his early career developing financial tools and web applications to help businesses analyze their investment portfolios, combining database integration with web development and design. In 2010 he co-founded PrintEco and managed a team of several developers while building PrintEco’s prototype paper-saving software suite. He continues to oversee all technical aspects of the company including our cloud-based analytics dashboard and feature development pipeline. Tom holds a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and computer science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
