  • Michael Marenick Co-Founder / Inventor

    Mike has a Computer Science degree and began his career as a programmer. His life took a left turn when he developed a patented technology used to incorporate eggs into topical skin preparations. The technology was developed for his mother who suffered with psoriasis. Not being the greatest cook, Mike didn’t let this stop him from growing his egg based skin care products into a business that is now over a decade old. His products are currently sold in medical spas, pharmacies and online stores. Not long ago you may have seen him peddling his products on a late night infomercial or doing sell out shows on Home Shopping Network. Mike always has to be the center of attention and sometimes this works to his advantage.

    No matter what he’s involved in Mike is a fierce competitor and hates to lose. He’s always thinking of ways to improve or make things faster. The idea for Paydunk came about due to his own frustration of seeing numerous customers abandon their website shopping carts because the checkout process was too difficult on tablets and smart phones.

  • Robert McHugh Co-Founder

    Robert earned degrees in several disciplines including Business Management; he is currently working towards his MBA with a concentration in Global Management. Rob’s business foundation rests solidly on his seven years as a Lobsterman and proprietor of Peroti inc. He quickly learned the value of putting in a hard day’s work and the reward of finding better ways of doing things. Robert has spent the last six years in corporate retail filling various roles including Omnichannel operations, Digital Customer Experience, and Global Ecommerce Operations.

    Robert is a dreamer that is often finding ways to push the limits of technology and Mike’s patience. Rob has a knack for finding easy solutions to challenging problems. Rob is self-motivated with a seemingly endless supply of energy, despite never drinking coffee or soda.

    Affected by recent high-profile data breaches, Rob’s goal is to return privacy back the digitally connected. Paydunk is the first step.
