At age 31, Chris Cope is founder and CEO of SlimWare Utilities, where he drives strategy and direction for the company that provides cloud-based software to clean, repair, update and maintain personal computers. With a rare combination of technical expertise and business savvy, Chris has spent his life building and selling software. He wrote his first computer game at age 12, and by his teen-age years, was attending computer classes at UCLA.

Chris built his first profitable Website in the midst of the dot-com crash in 2000, and has continued to create and grow several Web-based businesses, including Click Ad Equalizer and MP3 Advance.

From 2002-2004, Chris pioneered one of the first pay-per-click software products, a search engine market analysis for affiliate marketers. Chris’ product immediately became a top-selling marketing software and was quickly established as a standard for pay-per-click marketing.

By age 27, Chris had created top-selling digital products in six diverse categories across multiple verticals. Products he’s developed have included:
  • A network search engine using peer-to-peer technology.
  • An online directory of distressed auto and real estate listings.
  • A global remote-access interface that syncs multiple computers to an online cloud.

With SlimWare Utilities, Chris is focused on developing cloud-based software that uses a community-based approach for improving the function and performance of personal computers. His goal is to provide consumers with all the essential tools they need to have the best, fastest, most convenient computing experience.

Chris lives with his wife and two daughters near Biloxi, Mississippi.

At age 26, Bob Bryant is one of the technology industry’s youngest chief technical officers. As CTO for SlimWare Utilities, Bob directs all aspects of the product development and design for the company’s cloud-based software that cleans, repairs, updates and maintains personal computers.

Bob began his tenure with SlimWare Utilities after his technical skills as an online gamer caught the eye of NASCAR driver Cale Gale, brother to SlimWare Utilities founder and CEO Chris Cope. Cale introduced Bob and Chris, and the two tech experts soon forged a partnership to develop consumer software that would be better, faster and more powerful than any PC optimization or repair products on the market.

Now, with a team of developers working under his tutelage, Bob takes a cloud-based and crowd-sourced approach to software development. His specialty is in designing products that use community-based applications to build more personalized, customized and optimized software for consumers.

A native of Pepperell, Mass., Bob moved to Mississippi in 2006 to take the lead technical role at SlimWare Utilities.
