Leadership Team

With decades of combined experience, our leadership team is dedicated to helping our customers facilitate and accelerate their digital transformation journey.

Our passion runs especially deep for our clients performing good work in our communities.

Our K-12 Division, led by veteran educator Tessa Tyler, is composed of a team of former educators, who know first-hand the challenges of records management in school systems. This Division is solely focused on assisting K-12 school districts to spend less time on paperwork and more time on students and education. Our products and services offer the security, compliance, confidentiality, and automation required for peace of mind and ease of use.

Our co-founder, Matt Chretien, has a direct interest in seeing our business solutions help organizations that provide support and services to individuals with disabilities. Matt and his wife are guardians of a child with special needs, so he knows the details of how I/DD agencies and providers work and what they require. With this insight, the Intellinetics team has developed unique solutions for service providers to increase service level delivery, mitigate risk, and improve operational compliance.
