Bryan Thatcher has been at the forefront of the digital technology revolution since its early days. A visionary and industry pioneer, he has led Fuseboxâ€™s diverse team of creative and technical minds to develop some of the industryâ€™s most creative applications and solutions.
An early adopter of Web 2.0 technologies, Bryan has a passion for exploring the ever-changing landscape of the Webâ€”usage patterns, social media, and technological innovationsâ€”to create next generation online applications. The result? Innovations that are changing the industry.
Empressr is a recent example of this kind of innovation (the kind of innovation going on at Fusebox). Born from seeing the way people share various media, and the limitations of other interactive office tools, Bryan saw the opportunity for a new way to tell stories online using rich media. Empressr is the first Web application that allows users to create, manage and share rich-media presentations onlineâ€”with a level of functionality that far surpasses any online tool of its kind. Empressr is also unique in that it features tools that embrace the activities of the new Web community, like sharing, mashups and collaboration.
As CEO and Founder of Fusebox, Bryan applies his mind for innovation to some of the most revered brands in finance, media, and pharmaceuticalsâ€”Discover Financial Services, JPMorgan Chase, MTV, CNN, ESPN and Pfizerâ€”helping them increase profits and stay relevant in an ever-changing world of marketing opportunities. And in the process has garnered several coveted industry awards.
Bryan resides in Manhattan with his wife and daughter. When not relaxing with his family or starting a new venture, he enjoys photography, design, architecture and surfing in Montauk.
