For more than a decade, the Leadership Team at InboxDollars® has scaled the business while cultivating a culture of growth and employee engagement.
Founder and CEO
While in college, Daren turned the idea of rewarding consumers for online activities into a profitable reality. He has enthusiastically bootstrapped a dorm room hobby company into an International marketing company with annual revenues over $20 million. He is active in the MN start-up community as an investor, mentor and advisor. Daren also plays a mean game of poker and desperately craves a hole-in-one.

Previously Vice President of Development for Jump Technologies and co-founder of Analytical Solutions, Tom leads the Research and Development team responsible for infrastructure and product development.

Data fuels Brian’s fire. He leverages his love for data in powering our Research and Development team with insights to ensure optimization of our always improving product offering.

Heather leads the Finance department, leveraging her love of spreadsheets, process, and data to enhance the activities that support our members, customers, partners, and stakeholders.
