Jay Chapel is the CEO and Co-founder of ParkMyCloud, Inc. ParkMyCloud is a simple, single purpose SaaS platform that enables public cloud users to quickly and easily control costs by automatically scheduling on / off times for their idle servers, its Nest for the cloud.
Prior to founding ParkMyCloud, Jay founded Ostrato, a hybrid cloud management platform vendor. Before that he spent 13 years with Micromuse and IBM Tivoli, a provider of business-critical software. After an acquisition by IBM, he led the successful sales integration and subsequent growth of the IBM Tivoli/Netcool business in Europe and the Middle East. He also held several regional and worldwide sales roles in Switzerland, the UK and the US.
Jay earned a BA in Finance and an MBA from West Virginia. ParkMyCloud has raised over a $1MM since its July 2015 launch. CEO & Co-founder, Jay Chapel, and CTO & Co-founder, Dale Wickizer, were able to successfully assemble a team which included Marketing, Product and Development, both direct employees and contractors. Which enabled them to go from concept in the spring of 2015, to the company being founded in July, and an MVP launch in Sept, including the onboard of our first paying customer two weeks later. In between now and then, we have grown to include customers in 5 countries, added resellers and distributors, and re literally saving our customers millions of dollars per year. ParkMyCloud is actively raising, they have a lead in place for their Seed round and expect to close it before summers end. Why did you start ParkMyCloud?
