CSE alum Jeremy Jaech in the news

UW CSE alum and winner of a 2006 UW College of Engineering Diamond Award and 2011 UW CSE Alumni Achievement Award Jeremy Jaech has stepped down as CEO of Verdiem.

“… Considered one of the most accomplished entrepreneurs in the city, it will be interesting to see where he lands,” writes John Cook in GeekWire.

Why the change? “I wanted to get back to the early-stage stuff,” he tells GeekWire. Jaech has been spending time at UW CSE, working with Shwetak Patel and others.

Seattle Business called Jaech “a serial entrepreneur with a magic touch” in the list of the Top 25 Innovators & Entrepreneurs in 2009.  (See #24.)

Jaech currently serves as chair of the Technology Alliance, a technology industry group based in Seattle, advocating that an innovation economy is essential to Washington’s ability to thrive in a competitive world.
