MediaRoost’s founders are Mark, and Fred. They have been business partners for more than 30 years, creating a large number of successful software products geared towards easy to use team collaboration and communication over the web.

Mark has an MS in Computer Science from Pratt Institute. He was a Visiting Scientist at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Then he co-founded Whitesmiths, Ltd, where he worked on commercial C compilers for DEC computers. After selling Whitesmiths, he co-founded UniPress Software with Fred. Mark loves new technology and talking to customers. He also loves Pilates and playing golf when he is not working on TweetRoost.

Fred has an MBA in finance from NYU. He was one of the owners of Whitesmiths with Mark, after the sale they co-founded UniPress together. (UniPress created the well-known FootPrints Service Desk product, and was sold in 2006 to Numara Software) While Fred knows the ins and outs of running a business, he is also a serious programmer, and he loves new technology too. When Fred isn’t glued to the keyboard, he can be found skiing in Vail, or racing his Porsche at Lime Rock.
