As CEO of Ambra, Morris Panner leads the company on its mission of delivering better care through better technology. Morris is an active voice in the cloud and enterprise software arena, focused on the services and healthcare verticals. He is a frequent contributor to business, healthcare, and technology publications. Before Ambra, Morris built and sold an industry-leading business-process software company, OpenAir, to NetSuite (NYSE:N). He once served as the US Embassy Resident Legal Advisor in Bogota, Colombia; and his first job ever was as a janitor at his old high school while on summer break from college. Both of these very different experiences taught him valuable lessons about the human condition, and make him cherish his time with family that much more. Morris has a BA from Yale University and a JD from Harvard University.
Geoff Crawshaw has developed and coded a wide variety of commercial software, and was an early pioneer in building software-as-a-service applications. Most recently, he founded and led the technical team at OpenAir, which was acquired by NetSuite (NYSE:N). Geoff graduated cum laude from Milton Academy and attended Rice University. He served in the 82nd Airborne and was at one time stationed at the US Army Natick Research Development and Engineering Center. While there, he actually volunteered as “human research,” which means he can tell you exactly what hypothermia, heat exhaustion, and altitude sickness all feel like!
