    Michael Finley Madden
    Founder & CEO

    Successful entrepreneur, starting & managing other businesses. Leading people is my passion. I've assembled an esteemed advisory board I lean on for council with important decisions. I'm able to identify & surround myself with talent. The impressive & functional MVP you see at Capsoul.com demonstrates my ability to strategize, execute & lead a company. This is only the beginning, we've kept a lean team to minimize our burn & we're ready to ramp.

    James Stewart
    Founder

    He's the passionate visionary behind this project. A grandfather, father & businessmen, he presented a similar idea to me 15 months ago. His business experience is in finance, currently owning & operating a food brokerage company in Scottsdale. He & I share an incredibly deep passion for Capsoul, yet sometimes it's for different reasons & perspectives. We have a great partnership, one that is well balanced from each of our life experiences.

    Jamie Baird
    VP Design

    Our site is beautifully designed & she's the reason. At this point we believe our target demographic is the Pinterest user. Her female voice is often the one in the room knowing how to connect to them. Jamie is the talent behind all the subtle magic of our brand & UX & takes it to another level. Everyone on our team connects with Capsoul in their own way, but it deeply resonates with her & that powerful inspiration comes across in her work.

    Bob Eagan
    Senior Developer

    He & his developers have years of experience building PHP applications, specifically Kohana. After seeing the concept come to life, he & his team have also invested into Capsoul. I originally started with a group in Chicago, but as everything else has weirdly gone our way, (call it my Irish luck), I was fortunate to meet Bob. He has added another 2 developers in 2013 to support us & Bob also oversees a group of QAs who operate our live help desk.
