The Two Guys Who Originally Made It Happen
The lightbulb moment that sparked TSheets came amidst day-to-day operations of Matt Rissell's former business. With multiple locations and employees constantly on the go, tracking down timesheets—not to mention where and what employees were working on— became a nonstop pain and a productivity killer for Matt and his bookkeeper. Matt wanted online timesheets that offered speed, accuracy, mobility and real-time business-relevant details. So he went on an extensive search, and found nothing that quite did what he knew it could do. So he recruited genius programmer, Brandon Zehm, to create a custom solution and join him in developing TSheets from the ground up.
CEO (aka Grand Master of Everything TSheets)
Matt Rissell is the CEO and co-creator of TSheets, his sixth successful startup venture. A proven expert on time tracking technology and productivity best practices in the online age. His specialties include startups, leadership, new divisions, high growth opportunities, corporate sales, and strategy. He serves as part of the Idaho Technology Council (Executive Committee); ITC Software Alliance (Past Chair); Vistage CEO Network (Member); and the Boise State University Computer Science Dept. (Advisory Board). A public speaker in the US and beyond, Matt is also a former co-host of the business radio show, The Voice for Small Business. He is a winner of the 40 Under 40 Award, Franchisee of the Year, and President's Cabinet for Verizon Wireless. A Colorado native, when he's not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife, his three children and his Weimaraner – bird hunting, bowhunting, fishing, and enjoying the beautiful mountains in Idaho.Fun Fact
Matt has his pilot's license, but the marketing team refuses to fly with him.
CTO (aka Grand Mastermind of TSheets Development)
Brandon is a brilliant software architect and the brains behind the technology at TSheets. He has been offered massive compensation packages from the who's who of US tech companies, but has a die-hard entrepreneurial spirit, thirst for adventure, and adrenaline junkie attitude that keeps him focused on building TSheets. Brandon maintains a legion of loyal Linux/PHP followers due to the popularity of past apps he's developed along with his willingness to give away the code for free. Brandon gets his adrenaline fix from hard-core hobbies like cave exploring, skydiving, and climbing every mountain that whispers his name.Fun Fact
Brandon speaks Japanese.
SVP of Marketing (aka TSheets Wonder Woman)
Jennifer is an innovative marketing leader with more than ten years experience, including eCommerce, B2C, and B2B. With a Master's in Social Psychology, Jennifer has a heart for people and a track record of developing and leading high performance marketing teams. Once a true Southern Belle, Jennifer has found that a feast of cornbread, turnip greens, black eyed peas, and ham steaks are enough to bring a family together. Outside the office, Jennifer enjoys spending time with her husband, 16 year old son and 12 year old daughter. You'll find her hitting the weights at the gym and running the occasional 5K race, usually in support of a great cause.Fun Fact
