CEO and Founder, Deacom
Prior to establishing Deacom, Inc., Jay Deakins was the founder and CEO of an all-natural cleaning product manufacturing company, distributed through national supermarket chains and other retailers. Discouraged by the complexity of software options available at the time to run his business, Deakins took it upon himself to program a solution.
As a direct result of this experience, Deakins formed Deacom, Inc. in 1995, setting up an office in his basement and creating a single system specific to the needs of the manufacturing industry. There, he built the DEACOM ERP platform from the ground up while balancing programming, support, implementation, and sales with family time.
Today, Deakins continues to grow the company at its 37,000 square foot, state-of-the-art headquarters in Chesterbrook, Pennsylvania.
