CO-FOUNDER & CEO, ARREVA, FORT LAUDERDALE
Blyer co-founded Arreva along with philanthropist and computer scientist Susan Packard Orr in 2017, when they merged their companies. Arreva produces software that helps the non-profits manage events, raise money and manage their donor databases. “Because I love technology and I have great admiration for what non-profit organizations do, I took the path of starting a software company that helps non-profit organizations,” Blyer says.
|EDUCATION||University of South Florida (BA), Nova Southeastern University (MBA)|
|SOMETHING SURPRISING||I have a lifelong, immense passion for hockey, and at 60 years I’m still playing with “kids” half my age on a men’s league. I’m just very glad they allow me to be on the roster at my age.|
|FLORIDA ISSUE||I believe the most important issue facing Florida is a better public school education.|
|ALTERNATE CAREER?||I absolutely love hockey, and I’d like to think I would have opened an ice arena for the public to allow even more young people to enjoy the sport.|
