PETER KELLIS - Founder & CEO
Peter is primarily responsible for Product, Architecture and Engineering. When he's not busy coding and designing the system, he interfaces with prospects and leads the TRAY® team.
Peter holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT where he graduated with a perfect GPA. He worked as a Software Engineer, Design Engineer and Architect at Enterprise companies such as EMC, RSA Security and VERITAS before joining the Product team at Google.
He holds over 30 patents in data replication technologies and is in the Guinness Book of World Records with his brother Manolis and sister Maria for highest acceptance rate to MIT from a single family.
Peter decided to create TRAY in order to apply his expertise in moving information around to the problem of large scale on-premise mobile ordering. His goal is to improve Service Quality around the world and make it a fair and personable experience.
Peter likes tennis and—being from Greece—Sambuca on the rocks. If there's one thing he doesn't like, it's waiting in line.
