As the CEO of BasicBlock, Taylor has a demonstrated history of identifying trends and accurately predicting market strategies in both payments and transportation. With a strong background in tech and marketing, he leads the company’s product team and overarching R&D and customer acquisition initiatives. He’s the catalyst behind the BasicBlock team and is constantly pushing for velocity and growth. He attended Nebraska Wesleyan University before dropping out 6 credits shy of a degree to start BasicBlock and radically upturn an industry. He splits time between the company’s Lincoln and Chicago offices with his dog Mimi unwavering by his side.
In 2014, Luke was working for his family’s roofing business and found himself spending too much time trying to get his crews to document job sites. He looked around for software to make his life easier, and found an astrology app — but nothing that would help with the documenting-jobs thing.
Luke decided to make a solution “himself” — so he hired a local software company. Together they created the first version of CompanyCam, but that was only the beginning. Since then we’ve grown, changed, and adapted to stay ahead of our users’ trades. We embrace change and improvement, and we continue to add new features and integrations.
