THE SPI MANAGEMENT TEAM
Karl Lange - Founder
SPI Founder and Industry Pioneer
38 Years ago, already a successful software entrepreneur in his own right, Karl attended a timeshare convention at the Miami Beach Convention Center. It was there SPI contracted to write a business software system for a timeshare developer. The rest is history, as they say.
Karl guides the company with a steady hand and emphasizes the importance of relationships and delivering value to customers. "It's a tough business and we are the developers friend, our job is to help them successfully manage all the details." Karl received a MBA degree from the Wharton School of Finance and is active in civic organizations including the Sierra Club.
