Meet the ASIware Team

Paul Hanrahan

VP, Product Development

Child welfare and information technology seem like two separate career paths. But they merged in Paul’s life. He’s brought together 35 years in IT and experience as special projects coordinator and operations director of a child welfare agency, for which he oversaw IT infrastructure, HIPAA compliance, managed care accounts, facilities maintenance, and software implementation.

His IT background also includes field and process engineering, worldwide customer service management, and software design and testing.  Paul earned degrees in electrical engineering and IT – Network Security and served four exciting years in the U.S. Navy. (Be sure to ask him.)

But he’s most proud of his marriage to Beth, and their children, Jason, Katie and Victor.

Steve Hurst

Director of Marketing

Steve, who studied sociology and criminology at Bowling Green State University, comes honestly by his understanding of human service agencies’ data management needs.

He joined ASIware in 2011 as Director of Marketing after serving as a case manager for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Springfield, Ohio, a probation officer with Clark County Juvenile Court and case manager for a foster care agency. He also served on the boards of Big Brothers/Big Sisters and a national foster care agency, and sold real estate for 15 years.

His greatest satisfaction at ASIware is providing simple-to-use management software that allows organizations to focus more time serving others.
