Scott Lake – Founder / CEO
Scott has been leading software companies for the past decade. He was a founder and the CEO of Shopify.com, one of the largest hosted e-commerce apps on the Web. He also founded one of the first social media marketing firms, ThinkSM. Scott was also VP of Technical Services at Tomoye Corporation, where he helped implement online communities at some of the largest organizations in the world, including Lockheed Martin, John Deere, the G8 and the US Army.

Craig Fitzpatrick – Vice President of Products
At 9 years old, Craig became obsessed with software and started writing his own before switching to the dark-side (management) over 14 years ago, when he began leading software teams. In more recent times, Craig was the CEO of Devshop.com, a game-changing project management application for software developers. Source Metrics is the 6th software company that has considered Craig one of its fearless leaders.
Carolynn Lacasse – Marketing Manager
Carolynn is a people person. She makes sure that our community of users has a direct link back to the mother ship – helping with questions, collecting feedback and feature ideas. All this while helping the company run like a well oiled machine. Carolynn also generates much of Source Metric’s social media propaganda – err, content. ;)
Henry Brown – Sales
Born and raised in Ottawa, Henry is the sales guy at Source Metrics. A rec league veteran, you can often find him on one of many sporting pitches – be it a hockey arena, soccer field, dodgeball gymnasium or baseball diamond. In his spare time he likes to advocate Canadian bands, mix delicious Caesars and travel the planet.
Stephanie Naday – Community Manager
Stephanie is our community manager and writes about anything we need her to. Born and raised in Montreal, she moved to Ottawa to finish a Communications degree and fell in love with the city in the process. When she’s not here or at school, she spends most of her time traveling, filling her apartment with kitschy finds and listening to 90s R&B.
Jennifer Blakney – Office Manager
Jennifer is the Office Manager, which means dealing with all the behind the scenes paperwork and accounting maintenance which helps to keep Source Metrics moving onwards and upwards. What you don’t know is that she’s also a jack of all trades, trained as a cellist, composer and pastry chef. If she’s not watching Downton Abbey (which she’ll talk your ear off about) she has at least three books on the go and enjoys writing about the arts and life.
Mike Grouchy – Software Developer
Mike is responsible for making sure that everything works at Source Metrics. He is one of the brains that implements Scott and Craig’s vision. He hails from St. John’s, Newfoundland. As a teenager, he ran one of the largest Metallica fan sites, something he has been trying to live down ever since. Mike often contributes to open source projects and is one of the curators for Pycoders Weekly, a weekly newsletter about Python.
