Polite, Professional and Persistent

When it comes to helping you build a successful Web site, we believe that our staff is as important as our product.

To help acquaint you with our company and our philosophy, we've provided a little background information about the folks who head up the 1up! departments.  We're a small company of professionals who are driven to provide you with the quality products and services you need to power your Web site.  After so many years in the business, we think we've put together a great crew!

If you would like to contact one of the 1up! department heads,
please use this form.

Management Team:
J. David McChesney, CEO
David, aka "Dave," "Mac," or "The Big Cheese," is a founder of 1up!.  He runs the place.

When David isn't running the place...hmmm.  When David manages to sneak away from the office, he spends time with his daughter doing fun things like riding horses, camping and kayaking.  As a former photojournalist, Dave still dabbles in photography.
Christian High, IT Director
Everything that has anything to do with our software or hardware falls into the capable hands of Christian, who heads the highly skilled 1up! team of programmers and network administrators.  In other words, he's the (second) most important guy in the building.

Although his hands are full with developing new products, maintaining the existing ones and making sure your site is served 24/7, Christian still has time for a little bit of fun.  He's an avid baseball fan and actually likes running mini-marathons, but mostly he enjoys being with his wife and daughters.
Maureen Mall, Business Development Director
Maureen leads the talented 1up! sales, marketing and accounting teams.  If you have questions about any of our products and services, give them a call.  They'll be happy to discuss your Web strategy and talk about ways to enhance your readers' and advertisers' experience.  Got an idea for a new software feature or function?  These folks are also the incubator for 1up!'s line of products.

In Maureen's spare time, she's usually traveling, kayaking or playing in the dirt.
Lisa Murphy-Hounchell, Business Manager
Lisa's department handles the business side of the business!  If you've got questions about your monthly invoice, or Payment!Wizard, or just about anything else that involves a dollar sign, Lisa and her staff can help.

Outside of 1up!, Lisa jams on her bass guitar, often spotted at the open mic on weekend nights.  She's also been known to bring in a batch or two of fresh-baked cookies for the crew.  (Hey!  She hasn't done that in awhile!)

Robert Short, Launch & Training Manager
Chances are if you've recently launched a Web site with us, you've worked with Robert and his team.  Robert is the guy that heads up our Launch & Training department, making sure that everything goes smoothly in the time between signing your agreement until your site goes live on the Internet.  Robert and his team provide training and resources to new 1up! customers, easing your transition from noob to expert.

Robert spends his free time doing crazy things like jet-skiing and visiting Wisconsin to bring back rootbeer and cheese for the rest of us.  He also spends a lot of time involved with IndyCar Series racing.
