Management Team & Key Resources
Barry Paquet, Founder & Product Manager
Barry has over 15 years experience managing and directing small software companies. Prior to founding Quantum Whisper, Barry was Director of Product Management at ImageTag Inc., a Microsoft ISV focused on document management and imaging solutions. Notable industry acknowledgments during his tenure include recognition from Microsoft as award finalist for Microsoft ISV Partner of the Year - Innovation (2008) and Microsoft Dynamics ISV Solution of the Year (2006).
In 2003, he co-founded eFinitive Systems (Montreal, Quebec), a software and professional service firm focused on document imaging for Microsoft Dynamics. eFinitive was acquired by ImageTag (Chandler, Arizona) in 2006.
Barry has a BA from Colgate University, a graduate diploma from McGill University, an Executive MBA from University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM) and is a Certified Management Accountant (CMA).
To unwind, Barry likes to coach hockey, football and go fishing (or anything else outdoors in the PNW). But those are all second to spending time with his family --- wife Kathryn, daughter Brielle, son Preston and Bernese Mountain dogs, Bandit & Nelly (can't forget the pups).
Jivago Pecharki, Lead Developer
Originally from Brazil, we are delighted to have Jivago on our team as he brings a wealth of development experience as well as in-depth knowledge of core Microsoft technologies.
Jivago is a proud graduate FACEAR (Faculdade Educacional de Araucária) where he studied as a system analyst. Today, he boasts over 4 years development experience and has worked with several companies throughout Brazil. His professional career got a boost when at 18, he finished in the top 30 (among over 600 students) in a Microsoft student business competition.
When he is not learning new technologies, he likes to scuba dive. Finally, don’t be surprised if our first supported foreign language is Portuguese!
