The company’s new CTO is Adam Turkelson, an early engineer at Center City digital filing firm Neat Company.
“Adam is one of the most brilliant minds working on image recognition that I’ve encountered in the last ten years,” Mann said in a statement.
Mann first encountered Turkelson when he bought a Neat scanner, which was powered by image recognition technology that Turkelson helped develop. Turkelson will lead a distributed team of engineers in Philly, Minneapolis and Israel.
“Leading a company in the image recognition space is a lifelong dream of mine,” Turkelson said in a statement.
Turkelson, 31, of Perkasie, Pa., replaces former CTO Dan Grigsby, who was based in Minneapolis.
Mann had said that he planned to grow Slyce in Philadelphia. He’s currently hiring leadership roles on the sales team, plus an engineer and a product designer. We’ll be watching for more executive-level hires.-30-
