At the CEO’s Desk
Chris Howard Founder and CEO of Softeq
Mr. Chris Howard was born in Minnesota, US. After graduating high school among the top 2% of the students he entered University of Houston with a four-year scholarship. Choosing between architecture, computer science, and electrical engineering he preferred the latter to become a lifelong entrepreneur in the field.
Chris started his career at IBM, which at that time provided technical support to the NASA space agency. He gained experience in writing software for the space workstation (the results of his work were shown at the Vancouver World Expo), which included creating prototypes of user interfaces and control panels that would be easy to use in space.
Chris founded Softeq Development back in 1997, the name rooting to “technical software” to emphasize the business niche the company was aiming to occupy. Chris himself had been always most interested in complex problems and cutting-edge technologies, therefore from Softeq’s early days he sought to build a brilliant team and do something complicated, such as firmware, multiplayer synchronization, or assembly language development.
Chris has always had a fondness for game design and wrote his first game for a teletype on paper punch tape. His current interests, both personal and professional, span mobile development. Both business lines where included into Softeq’s business development strategy, and have already yielded success on both B2B and B2C markets.
