CEO & Founder
In 2010 Mikel formed reinteractive, a software development company focused on rapid application development and systems integration primarily using the Ruby on Rails application development framework.
He set up reinteractive as a 100% remote company – the type of company he wanted to work for. Since its inception, reinteractive has achieved greater than 30% growth, year-on-year and is the largest dedicated Ruby on Rails consultancy in the Asia Pacific region. Over the same time period he successfully started and sold two SaaS businesses, stillalive.com and flood.io.
In 2013 Mikel co-founded Flood IO with an amazing co-founder team. Flood IO is the world’s most scalable load generation platform and load reporting tool for performance testing world wide.
Mikel is well known in the Ruby on Rails community for his extensive work on the Rails ActionMailer component and as the author of mail, the Ruby email library which has been downloaded more than 145 million times worldwide and is used by many of the biggest and most well-known companies in the world to send their emails.
Mikel is a member of the Ruby on Rails commit team, an international team of peer-approved individuals who are authorised to make or approve changes to the core Ruby on Rails code base. He has also served on the committees of Ruby Australia and the Australian Web Industry Association Committee.
As a means of paying it forward and supporting the Ruby community, Mikel directs a portion of profits from the company to community initiatives helping spearhead the adoption of the Ruby on Rails platform. Since 2013 through his free Rails InstallFest initiative over 2,000 new developers have been introduced to Ruby on Rails, including almost a third of attendees have been female.
With additional specialties in building and growing companies, business management and executive consulting. He is also the Founder and CEO of exec.io, providing a new category of online tool: Organisational Management System (OMS). Its goal is to change the way business operates by making available organisational tools that are effective, efficient and simple to use.
