Our Board of Directors


Mark Maxey, Chairman of the Board

Mark Maxey was born and raised in Abilene, TX.  After graduating from Wylie High School, Mark received a B.S. in Mathematics and a B.S. in Computer Science from Abilene Christian University and later a M.S. in Computer Science from Texas A&M University.  After graduation, he began working at Raytheon in 1994 where he still works today.


Mark's prayers were answered when God sent Tammy into his life.  They were married in 1997 and have a son, Ethan, and a daughter, Molly.  A third daughter, Emma, lived inside Tammy for 8 months and passed away after birth.


Mark's parents blessed him with a firm foundation of faith.  That faith was significantly shaped through Hispanic ministries, short term missions, and partnering with long term missionaries.  These experiences combined with the strategies that make Silicon Valley startups successful shape his worldview.


Mark enjoys soccer, cooking, science fiction, technology, and people who think outside of the box.

Rod spent 25 years as a missionary in Curitiba, Brazil where he and his wife, Linda, raised three kids and shared Christ’s love in the trenches of life every day.
