Chief Executive Officer & Founder
With his first computer program written in 1978 and his first software company making a profit before he could vote, Eric Shapiro has a proven track record of entrepreneurial success. After working as a product manager and evangelist at Apple, he founded Zero G software, which was purchased by Rovi. Imagination Technologies claimed his next company, and then he founded ArcTouch, his third company, with Adam Fingerman.
Eric knows a well designed and implemented app is magic. Once installed, an app transforms your device into a special purpose instrument for just about anything — from predicting the weather to reuniting relatives. It’s this wide-open potential for each project that inspires Eric’s invigorating insight.

Chief Experience Officer & Founder
Adam Fingerman was working on a list of potential apps well before the iTunes app store was open.

Adam’s ace in the hole — his foresight—helps keep ArcTouch on top of product strategy, design, and implementation.
Before founding ArcTouch with Eric Shapiro, Adam worked in product management and marketing at companies including Apple, Lucent, and Roxio. His experience creating and introducing award-winning products goes back to his high school days, and his vision has guided over 200 apps to market.
