Amazing products are nothing without the people behind them.

We come from the best schools and professional backgrounds. It’s because of our talented people that we’ve been able to create products and organize data in a way that’s never been done before.

Individually, we are engineers, marketers, salespeople, designers, accountants and recruiters, but taken as a whole, we’re Whitepages.

There are fewer than 140 Whitepagers in the world.

Chief Financial Officer

Jason oversees all consumer revenue and supporting functions along with financial, human resources, legal and administrative areas of the company. According to Jason, the fact that Whitepages uses data for good is an important part of how we operate our business. “We want to be transparent with users about what we do with our data, but we also want to showcase the good that comes from sharing contact info in our digital world. It is critically important for us to ask ourselves if we are using our data in a way that our users can feel good about.” Jason has a B.A. in Physics from Williams College, a M.S. in Engineering-Economic Systems from Stanford University and a MBA from the Tuck School at Dartmouth College.
