Galvanize, 515 E Grant St, Phoenix, 85004

Five years ago Jacob Findlay was the Director of Finance for WebPT. One day he decided to take a chance on building a new dream, left WebPT, and spent a year working for a diesel truck repair shop. Why would a financial leader leave a promising job to work at a repair shop? One word: Fullbay. Join us during PHX StartupWeek at Galvanize to hear Jacob's incredible story.

About this event

Jacob Findlay is the CEO and Co-founder of Fullbay. Five years ago, he made the leap from healthcare to truck repair. He wanted to take the best ideas from the electronic medical records world and apply them to heavy duty repair. In other words, build a medical record for trucks.

At the time, Jacob was in the Director of Finance role for a wildly successful startup company called WebPT. More than 10,000 physical therapy clinics in the United States—one-third of all clinics in the country—now run on WebPT’s software.

Despite his success at WebPT, he left to spend a year running the office side of a truck repair shop. He wanted to gain street credibility in truck repair. He then launched Fullbay in the Fall of 2015.

Today Fullbay is the number one fleet repair platform in North America. Jacob is a CPA, a cellist, a so-so surfer, and the father of seven children.
