Vice President of Technology
Curt is the Vice President of Technology at PerkStreet after making a career developing a range of financial software applications at companies like Macgregor, ITG, and Athena Investment Systems. Curt sees technology as the means to make lives better — not more complicated. He sees tremendous opportunity to use technology to improve the way consumers interact with their finances, which is one of the reasons he helped co-found PerkStreet.
In addition to overseeing technology and infrastructure for PerkStreet, Curt is our "go to" guy for recommendations on the latest consumer electronics and well, just about everything else we're thinking about buying. When Curt makes a recommendation, you can rest assured he’s done the research and probably tried each of the products himself just to be sure.
