Jaspar Weir

President

Bio

Jaspar Weir is the co-founder and president of TaskUs. He focuses on leading the company's transformational growth and strategic initiatives so that it can provide its clients access to the people, the process, and the technology required to scale quickly, to excel operationally, and to increase the bottom line. He doesn't think small; he wants to help change how the business world works.

Before TaskUs, Jaspar co-founded two other companies with TaskUs CEO Bryce Maddock, including a social media marketing agency and an events production business that produced the largest all-age nightclub in Los Angeles for three years.

Jaspar spreads his entrepreneurial learnings to students in The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship and guest lectures at The University of Southern California.

 

He has been named to Inc's "30 under 30" and is a two-time finalist in the EY's Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

 

He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Communication from the University of California.

 

It's believed that Jaspar doesn't swim for pleasure, but rather to eat the freshest fish directly from the ocean each morning at breakfast. Like a dolphin.

Bryce Maddock

Chief Executive Officer

Bryce Maddock

Chief Executive Officer

Bio

Bryce Maddock is the Chief Executive Officer of TaskUs. He and co-founder Jaspar Weir have grown the business from a team of two to over 7,000 employees since 2008. Not too shabby for a couple of (then) 20-year-old friends from high school, who initially worked out of their parents' garages to get the business off the ground!

Bryce's entrepreneurial streak began at age 19 when he and Jaspar successfully opened & ran Club Access - the first all-age nightclub in Los Angeles - for three summers in a row during their college years.

Post-college, he began his professional career on Wall Street as an investment banking analyst, before co-founding TaskUs in 2008.

Over the course of his professional career, Bryce has been called one of the "Top Twenty Entrepreneurs in Their Twenties" by the Los Angeles Business Journal and has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, CNN, Fast Company, Wired, The Los Angeles Times, and Men's Health. In 2012, TaskUs was named "The Next Big Startup" by the New York Stock Exchange, and Bryce had the honor of ringing the closing bell at NYSE. From 2013-15, TaskUs was named "The Fastest Growing Outsourcing Company" in America by Inc. Magazine's prestigious "Inc. 500" list. Most recently, Bryce was named to Inc.'s prestigious "30 Under 30" list in 2016, and nominated for "The Entrepreneur of the Year" award by Ernst & Young.

Bryce serves as the Chair of the TaskUs Foundation that pays for the private education of our employee's children in the Philippines, and sits on the board at the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), an organization that provides entrepreneurial education to high school students in underprivileged communities in America.

He graduated from New York University Summa Cum Laude with a degree in International Relations. He lives in Austin, Texas with his girlfriend, Kathleen, and their French Bulldog, Mr. Carter. In his spare time, Bryce competes in marathons and Ironman triathlons.

Jon Wouters

Vice President, Expansion and Growth

Jon Wouters

Vice President, Expansion and Growth

Bio

Jon is TaskUs' Vice President, Expansion and Growth. He caught the startup bug in 2008 as the first hire of an online rewards-for-recycling startup in LA. Jon grew with the company, spearheading the deployment of more than 1,000 recycling kiosks, eventually becoming the Director of Operations for their LA office. Eager for a new type of challenge, Jon joined our team in 2013, bringing his love of people management to the international operations of TaskUs. 

He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Latin American Studies from Tulane University and is a certified Scrum Master.

In fact, one might correctly consider that his personal life is even more intriguing professional one, if one is so inclined to believe – which we do.

Rumor has it that Jon was born raised by wolves. Although, like most wolf pups, he longed for so much more in life than scraps and baying at the full moon.  Jon is the first Eagle Scout to originate from his pack. While he took up drumming initially as a means to ward off predators over 20 years ago, he eventually migrated (sans pack) to Los Angeles where he has called home for the past eight years.

When not traveling to Manila, one will find him listening to or playing music. Today – and proving that one can never run too far from one's roots – he has formed a pack of his very own amazing dog, Dixie, who is beloved at TaskUs. Thus far, Dixie has shown no interest in either drumming nor leaving her pack with Jon.

Here's the thing about Ryan: he's amazing. Sure, he's been TaskUs' Director of Workforce Management since June 2015. Sure, he inspires his colleagues on a daily basis with his impressive insight, dedication to excellence, intellect and top-tier skills. And sure, he's a great guy that everyone values around the office.

No, what makes Ryan utterly amazing is that he's a fan of the DC Universe comic books - especially, the Justice League, Batman, Flash and the Green Lantern. So yes, Ryan is freaking amazing. Superheroes, like Ryan, simply can't be any other way but so!

Ryan provides strategic direction, tactical leadership and day-to-day responsibilities for the Workforce team. He ensures proper staffing and training to accomplish departmental goals and objectives. He collaborates key stakeholders to develop processes, procedures, and methodologies, which support the company's culture and goals. Ryan drives cost savings initiatives for operational efficiencies. He also assesses and quantifies near-term risk and opportunities, and the impact of business initiatives.

He began his TaskUs career as Team Leader in August 2011. By January 2014, he was promoted to Operations Manager. When January 2015 rolled around, our resident superhero was promoted again, this time to his current position as Director of Workforce Management.
