Ken McElrath

Founder & CEO of Skuid
Ken McElrath

Ken is a design thinker, author, artist, and a serial entrepreneur. He founded Skuid in 2013 on the simple belief that enterprise apps should stop forcing people to behave like machines. Instead, apps should behave more like the humans who use them, so everyone can thrive in the digital world. With the unique, no-code-required Skuid platform, companies gain the agility, engagement and optimization they need to sustain innovation and leapfrog their competition. With hundreds of customers and more than 5 million users across 32 countries, Skuid has garnered national media coverage from Forbes, Fortune, Inc., Entrepreneur, TechCrunch, and others.

Before launching Skuid, Ken cofounded two other startups, Skoodat and Cazabba. Prior to this he held positions with or consulted for at least a dozen other tech startups. He spent his early career leading marketing for various divisions of MicroAge, Inc.

Ken has coauthored two books, The Ascent of a Leader, and Beyond Your Best. Ken currently serves on the board of The Art Factory in Germany. He earned two bachelor’s degrees from Grand Canyon University and a master of fine arts degree from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. When he’s not traveling, he lives in Chattanooga, with his bride of 35+ years, Donna.
