Lowell started Traction to pursue his passion: helping fellow entrepreneurs scale and sell software companies. As a founder and CEO who has extensive acquisition experience, Lowell navigated the gap in the $5M-$50M merger and acquisition market. Traction was built to help others do the same.

Lowell twice built the leader in the online market research data collection industry - GMI (sold to WPP for $100M) and Toluna (sold to a Private Equity firm for $260M). He co-founded FlexMinder - the leader in Healthcare IT automated claim submission (sold to JellyVision), in addition he led the buying side of several transactions including a $10M technology company in Texas and a $40M technology company in Connecticut. At F500 Rockwell Automation as a Global Sales VP he worked closely with Corporate Development on acquisition strategy.

Passionate about helping others, Lowell is a mentor with Startup Weekend, Nomadic Mentors, Techstars, Founders Coop, University of Washington CoMotion and dozens of early-stage companies. 

He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Outside of work he spends time with his family, skis, plays tennis and travels the world.
