eric-dunn-quicken

Quicken has been the computer users’ leading Personal Finance program. Earlier this year, it was spun off from Intuit and is now an independent company.

Eric’s talk will cover:

  • Why Quicken was spun off and what that means for its future.
  • The Quicken roadmap – desktop, mobile devices and the cloud.
  • Quicken and Intuit/Mint going forward.
  • What’s new in Quicken 2017 for Windows and the Mac, and working towards feature parity between Mac and Windows.
  • The Quicken Beta Testing process and why you might want to join it.

Eric has been a Quicken user since 1985 and was employee #4 at Intuit when Quicken was Intuit’s only software product. He was a programmer on almost all the early versions of Quicken, led the development of its payments business, was its CFO during Intuit’s acquisition of TurboTax and later became Quicken’s CTO and General Manager.

Eric retired from Intuit in 2000 to pursue a second career in technology investing, first as an angel investor and then as a General Partner at Cardinal Venture Capital. He later returned to Intuit as General Manager for Quicken and is now Quicken’s CEO as a standalone private company.
