The team

Salesforce Project Management Software - Mission Control Team

Colin Johnson

CEO & CO-FOUNDER
Colin’s passion for exceptional project management led him to start a business to enable it, alongside his good friend Chris. Together, they shared a drive to develop and evolve industry leading software. Cue Aprika. Having worked extensively as a Business Analyst and Project Manager and with the Salesforce CRM and force.com platform, Colin appreciates how seamless project delivery can make all the difference to an organization’s bigger picture. He excels at taking client briefs, understanding business requirements and coming up with strategic, fit-for-purpose solutions. Colin leads the Aprika team in managing Mission Control’s roadmap and for this reason loves the ‘Program Planner’ and ‘Story Board’ feature. If not hitting the surf, Colin will be found hitting the slopes on his snowboard and spending time with his family.

Chris Woolcott

CTO & CO-FOUNDER
Having worked as a dedicated Saleforce.com Developer for more than 15 years and having delivered a diverse range of Salesforce projects globally, Chris has had a front seat in its evolution. It seemed only natural to team his technical expertise with Colin’s business acumen to start Aprika and to bring innovative third party integration to the industry. At Aprika, Chris oversees the development team and the delivery of product releases, maintenance and application security. He uses Mission Control’s ‘Project Builder’ every day because ‘it’s great for building out Project Requirements on the fly’ and can be used to drive an entire project. Screen time doesn’t stop with the job, Chris is a keen gamer. He also loves surfing (when time allows) and running (fast) when not!

With nearing 20 years of experience, Jaret is no stranger to the Salesforce ecosystem. In 2006, Jaret was an Account Executive at the “Mothership” via the Toronto office, and he was a 2007 Salesforce Volunteer award recipient mainly thanks to his many volunteer hours helping Special Olympics Canada streamline their data and raising funds during the Toronto Raptors and Maple Leaf’s home games. In 2012, Jaret responded to a YCombinator Hacker News FormAssembly job post that led to him joining the company as the 1st sales and remote hire. He helped FormAssembly drive revenue, recruit numerous talent, and was involved heavily in operations. During his tenure, FormAssembly grew from $500K to $11.5M ARR (bootstrapped to $10M) and headcount scaled from a handful to over 100 people. While there, Jaret earned a seat with the inaugural executive leadership team. Outside of work, Jaret enjoys investing time with his family, and he enjoys running (he’s completed 4 half-marathons, and 1 full marathon), playing hockey, tennis, and he’s an avid reader. We’re delighted to have Jaret join the Mission Control crew!
