Meet the Team
Email software for humans, by humans
GreenArrow was born out of the love of solving customers’ problems. In 2003, our Founder, David Harris, was providing consulting services for open source email servers — primarily email hosting systems. He loved digging into thorny problems and creating solutions for customers.
When David began to get requests for a powerful email sending solution, he accepted the challenge. GreenArrow was born in response to that need. Since that time GreenArrow has been continually improved based on customer feedback. The consulting service was discontinued in 2008, to focus solely on GreenArrow. Now an entire team is making GreenArrow better and solving customer problems every day.
CEO & DEVELOPMENT
Allow us to introduce our fearless leader. Not only is he our CEO and Lead Developer, he’s also an email deliverability guru and the founder of GreenArrow. And he plays classical guitar.
David first started his own business when he was still in high school. The company began providing website hosting, but as David’s consulting experience grew, he found himself working frequently with open source email servers and writing custom software to solve problems. Over time his software grew into a full-fledged email platform called—you guessed it—GreenArrrow. In his spare time, you can usually find him coaching a Little League team, drinking gourmet coffee, playing Go, and spending time with his wife Penni and their four amazing children.1
Managing complex development tasks, coordinating people places and things, and somehow staying sane in the middle of it all? Just another day’s work for our intrepid General Manager.
Jeff Anderson has worked for over 15 years in operations and process management. He’s also a self-described “healthy work evangelist” who is passionate about building teams who get results and function well together in the process. He plans for the worst and works to achieve the best. And in his spare time, forget grilling and yard work—this guy’s favorite thing to do is spend time with his friends, his wife Melissa, and his 8 grandbabies all under the age of 7.2
The second-longest tenured team member here at GreenArrow is our guy, Dave. If Dave had his way, our annual Get-Together would take place on a lake back in the woods and only involve fishing poles and campfires.
Dave has spent is life helping others succeed in business and in life. Dave is our GreenArrow Evangelist and he is also always on the lookout for ways to help our customers find solutions that make their bottom lines skyrocket! Dave and his wife Jennifer have three kids are expecting their first grandbaby this fall!3
Your GreenArrow Team
We’re focused on creating fantastic software and delivering top-notch support, while also striving for a warm, tight-knit team environment. We’re committed to achieving excellence and working hard while not burning the candle at both ends (there’s more to life than work). And best of all, we’re bootstrapped, profitable, and growing steadily.
GreenArrow is powered by more than just email, it’s powered by people. We’re proud to introduce you to the faces behind the magic.
Matt keeps our email servers running, pitches in with support, writes documentation, tests new features, and helps out with development. In short, he does it all.
Matt discovered Linux and web development during his junior year of high school. Soon, he realized getting paid to work on servers was far more interesting than mowing lawns, and launched an IT consultancy. After graduating from the University of South Florida, he took on a new customer – DRH Internet Inc. DRH was growing fast, and one of Matt’s favorite customers, so when the offer to come on board full-time, he jumped at the opportunity.
Matt arguably has one of the coolest jobs here. Not only is he involved in a wide vareity of departments, he also gets to be the guy to purchase servers and put them through their paces (i.e. beat them up) until they perform to the level of quality needed for high-volume, high-speed email sending.
In his spare time, you can find Matt hanging out with his wife Paige, powerlifting, hiking, reading, or running DNS Check – a business he accidentally started while learning Ruby on Rails. Does this guy sleep?
