Gear Fisher, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder
Gear graduated from Colorado State University in 1991 with a degree in Civil Engineering. While in college, he competed as a category 2 road cyclist and earned many top ten placings in various races across the United States.
After working for a water resources engineering firm for six years, he changed careers in 1998 to begin working as a programmer for a budding web consulting firm. A year later, and having risen to the position of Director of Technology, he took on another challenge by helping Managed Business Solutions start a new internet consulting unit within their Inc. 100 Company.
While helping grow the Internet Business Unit from four to over twenty people, he began working at home on a small side project with his close friends Dirk and Joe Friel: TrainingBible.com. This effort was a labor of love and grew out of his passion for cycling and endurance sports. Within two years, the company's success allowed him to leave MBS and become the first full time employee of TrainingBible.com, which would later become Peaksware, LLC.
Gear single-handedly developed the www.TrainingPeaks.com software platform for the first seven years of the company and then as COO, continued to lead the development team and product direction.
Today as Chief Executive Officer, Gear remains involved in the technology and development of the company's products but is mostly focused on shaping Peaksware's future and strategic plans.
Gear lives in Fort Collins, CO with his wife Shana and their two daughters Payton and Kendal.
