Tim Huntley is the CEO of Personalized Learning Games, a 2015 EdTech spinout of 3C institute, focused on helping K-12 students improve their social and emotional skills.  He is the former CEO of Ganymede Software, a venture-backed start-up he founded in 1995 with three friends from IBM.  Ganymede developed two award winning products, Chariot and Pegasus, for testing and measuring the performance of applications running over enterprise computer networks.  The company grew from four people to one hundred, raised $10 million in equity capital, and had twelve month trailing revenues of $13 million before being acquired in 2000 by Mission Critical/NetIQ for $170 million.

Following Ganymede’s acquisition by NetIQ, Mr. Huntley was involved in a wide range of M&A, due diligence, and investment activities. These included the integration of WebTrends, the purchases of Marshal Software and SQL Probe from Subquery Innovations, and investments in @Stake and Lumigent Technologies.

Huntley is an active angel investor in the Raleigh-Durham community serving on the boards of Adzerk and Spring Engage, and enjoys spending time with his wife, Jenny, and their twin boys, Neil and Evan.  He graduated in 1989 from North Carolina State University with a BS in Computer Science.
