Detroit Labs co-founder Paul Glomski made the announcement.
The Techweek100 is a list that honors individuals and organizations that are influential in the growth of a technology company, facilitators of community growth in an advisor role and are an integral part of Michigan’s innovation infrastructure. Selected by the Detroit community and Techweek Executive Advisors, the Techweek100 is a celebration of all the people and organizations that have made prominent contributions to business and technology this year. Techweek Detroit will run from Monday, April 13 through Sunday, April 19.
“At Detroit Labs, we specialize in creating beautiful, intuitive apps, but at the core of our business are people who are innovative, provoke new thought and lead civic growth,” said Glomski. “Being named to the list of top tech influencers in Detroit is an incredible honor and we are privileged to be sharing this with a distinguished list of professionals.”
Paul Glomski serves as the company’s CEO where he has spearheaded award-winning work with clients such as Domino’s Pizza and Chevrolet. Having conducted his graduate work at MIT, Paul’s passion is the City of Detroit. It’s here that he feels a Midwest work ethic and automotive engineering roots make Detroit the perfect breeding ground for a tech services company.
Nathan Hughes is a software and technology leader with a track record of inventing and driving teams to deliver business results. Nathan’s love for the City of Detroit is on display as he is heavily involved in the development and creative communities of Southeast Michigan. Nathan is the driving force behind the Detroit Labs Apprenticeship Program, a three-month long immersive training experience in software and mobile development.

Dan Ward focuses his efforts on Sales and Marketing for Detroit Labs. Out of college, Dan worked at Quicken Loans in the IT department and proved to be a strong asset as his role evolved into working on high-tech projects for the Quicken Loans leadership. Dan has positioned himself as a thought leader in technology as a go-to source for leading national publications like the Los Angeles Times, Bloomberg and The Washington Post.
