Meet AfterVault founder Ric Parks
In 2014, I recognized my own need for a technology solution that would guarantee my wife could find my life insurance, our bills, and all our accounts if something happened to me. I could find no solution that would alert and remind a person’s family when the time came so I started programming AfterVault just for myself. The scope of the project quickly grew beyond my own needs so I hired additional technical help and finally released the original product early in 2016.
Prior to founding AfterVault.com, I worked more than ten years on high security applications such as Wells Fargo’s online banking product and directing the engineering at Yapstone, a provider of online payment solutions. This security experience informs every aspect of AfterVault’s best-in-class security technologies and processes. In addition to payments and banking, I’ve also led the engineering efforts for successful software products in education, pharmaceutical testing and safety surveillance, and public utilities.
When I have the time, I enjoy fitness, travel, board games, and reading mystery, fantasy, suspense, historical, and science fiction novels.
