“Not the Retiring Type”

The Sunday New York Times profiles UW CSE alumnus Jeremy Jaech – co-founder of Aldus and Visio, and currently CEO of Verdiem.

“Now I am running Verdiem, which has 55 employees and provides software to reduce energy consumption of PC networks. The company monitors, measures and manages information technology energy use and related greenhouse gas emissions.

“I believe that Verdiem, like Aldus’s desktop publishing and Visio’s diagramming on the PC, is another opportunity to create a new market, this time in green computing. There’s a need there that no one’s filled yet.

“My favorite nonprofit I work with today is the University of Washington, which is a fantastic research institution and has an excellent basketball team, too.”
