Ari Newman - Founder and President of Filtrbox


Ari is an accomplished entrepreneur, start-up advisor, and founder and president of Filtrbox, Inc. He made the move from the SF bay area to Boulder in 2002 and hasn’t looked back. Ari’s mantra is “work-hard / play-hard”, and he thinks Boulder is the ideal place to live the dream. When he’s not at the Filtrbox office or hanging with the family, you’ll find him on his road or mountain bike somewhere in the front range.

As an experienced entrepreneur, he thrives on the challenges and opportunities that define early stage companies. He has been involved in numerous technology companies in various roles and stages of evolution. 

Prior to Filtrbox, Ari held various senior management positions at CreekPath Systems in the areas of client services and product management and strategy. Additionally he has held senior management positions in network operations, professional services, and sales engineering at Novell and Volera (a Novell spin-out). He was also a founder of JustOn, a successful ASP sold to Novell in 2000. He received a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from the Leeds School of Business at University of Colorado.
