Chief Executive Officer
Over the last 20 years, Slav Kulik has led dozens of software development teams serving both startups and Fortune 500 companies, and has won many awards for his work. He is a passionate leader who loves technology, his customers, and his teams.
Early in his career, Slav was an engineer for several large international eCommerce and customer support companies, where he helped design and implement things like fraud prevention tools, data warehousing, and platforms that continue to process millions of dollars of daily transactions. He repeatedly designed fast, reliable, massively scalable architectures that earned him increasingly senior engineering roles, including serving as SVP of Engineering at multibillion-dollar companies.
Eventually, Slav co-founded a few startups, including OfferCraft and MacroView Labs, where he was Chief Technology Officer and Chief Software Architect — each of these software companies were acquired in 8-figure deals. During this time, Slav gained deep, hands-on experience building up and running diverse teams of engineers around the world.
Slav launched Plan A with many of the developers and creatives who have worked alongside him for years. He still enjoys personally jumping in to write code any chance he has.
Chairman of the Board
Aron Ezra is an innovator and entrepreneur. He has served as CEO of multiple software companies, all of which he grew over 20x and were acquired in multimillion-dollar exits.
His previous company, OfferCraft, won the Platinum Award from the G&L Roundtable for best new technology; was named Startup of the Year by the Best in Biz Awards; was named one of the Top 20 Most Innovative Technologies; and was profiled in over 200 news stories published in places like The New York Times, Forbes, Quartz, and Business Insider. It was acquired by NRT, a Canadian FinTech company that processes over $20 billion annually.
Earlier, as CEO of MacroView Labs, a mobile software startup used by hospitality, travel, healthcare and retail customers, Aron grew the startup into a powerhouse with tens of millions of users globally, and dozens of industry awards. It was acquired by Bally Technologies (now part of Scientific Games).
Additional past highlights include serving as an SVP at Hill & Knowlton (part of WPP); and as a Director at The Advisory Board Company, a top healthcare consulting firm (part of UnitedHealth Group). As a thought leader on many business and future technology topics, Aron has been invited to give more than 1,000 presentations at industry conferences. He has won dozens of honors, including being named one of the Most Intriguing People in Las Vegas by Seven Magazine, and a Top 10 Rising Business Leader in the city by the Las Vegas Business Press.
Aron is also an investor and advisor to several startups and middle-market technology companies. He has a bachelor’s degree with honors from Princeton.
