Adam Stein

President and Co-Founder

Adam runs the product team at Gridium. Formerly he co-founded TerraPass, and before that worked at Tellme and Trilogy. He has an MBA from Wharton and a BS from Stanford, neither of which impress his one-year-old daughter.

Ben Vickers

Senior Developer

Ben Vickers is a back-end developer at Gridium living in St. Michael Minnesota (just outside Minneapolis). When he is not chasing after his kids, he is trying to hyzer flip Valkyries through tunnels at the local disc golf course. Except in winter… when he just freezes.

Greg Anderson

Director of Research

Greg is the Director of Research at Gridium. He has B.S. degrees in mathematics and physics, and an M.S. in statistics – which is what data science used to be called. Before becoming Gridium’s first employee, he developed applications in the fields of marketing research and biostatistics. Greg and his wife live in Chicago where they enjoy all kinds of music and spend their free time keeping track of their two grown children, two dogs, and a noisy parrot.

Kimberly Nicholls

Full Stack Engineer

Kimberly Nicholls is a full stack engineer at Gridium who loves to make data useful. She also enjoys reading books and playing outside, especially in the water.

Millen Paschich

Director of Marketing

Millen has been thinking about the built environment since he was four, when he started with picking up trash at the jobsite. He began his career at Cambridge Associates and has an MBA from UCLA. Talk to him about bicycling, buildings, businesses, and green chile burritos!

Nick Pleis

Director, Engineering

Nick is the Director of Engineering at Gridium. Before Gridium, Nick co-founded the lead generation company SnapROI. His experience includes many years in mobile software development as the lead technical architect at Quickoffice Inc. (now part of Google). His hobbies include playing soccer poorly and crafting pretty good wine.

Tom Arnold

CEO and Co-founder

Tom Arnold is co-founder and CEO of Gridium. Prior to Gridium, Tom Arnold was the Vice President of Energy Efficiency at EnerNOC, and cofounder at TerraPass. Tom has an MBA from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania and a BA in Economics from Dartmouth College. When he isn’t thinking about the future of buildings, he enjoys riding his bike and chasing after his two daughters.

Tim Canavan

Senior Manager, Operations

Tim Canavan is the Senior Manager, Operations at Gridium. He has worked for Cambridge Associates, as a venture fellow at SJF Ventures and at a number of cleantech startups. Tim has a Masters in Environmental Management and an MBA from Duke, and a Bachelors degree from UMass Amherst. He is an avid backpacker and backcountry skier.

Andy Richardson

Front-end Engineer

Andy is a Midwestern adventure seeker with an unnatural enthusiasm for trail mix. A front-end engineering & design specialist by trade, he spends the rest of his time outside and/or making funny faces at his daughter.

Kevin Larrabee

Front-end Engineer

Kevin is a front-end engineer at Gridium. He was an Intern Architect and Building Information Modeling consultant, helping large institutions more efficiently manage building information, space, and resources, until he realized writing software was much more fun than just using it.
