Emily Cisek

Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer

After witnessing how difficult it was to wrap up the details of a loved one’s life, Emily Cisek knew there had to be a better way. However, she soon discovered there wasn’t a single digital platform that could help someone simplify how they organized their life or stay on top of ever-changing data. It was then that she decided to create The Postage, a solution for people who wanted to manage their information and effectively control the aftermath of life.

Prior to founding The Postage, Emily was the Director of Sales at Integrate Agency, a full-service digital and traditional marketing agency, specializing in technology, energy, and real estate throughout Texas. With her extensive experience in leading, developing, and launching robust marketing and communication programs, she led efforts for a number of clients across various industries to build out their digital initiatives.

Emily received her BS degree in Business Administration from Bryant University then grew her professional career in Houston at Bounce Energy and Direct Energy as a Digital Marketing Manager, before spending several years in Austin leading a branch of Integrate Agency. Emily decided to headquarter The Postage in Houston, in an environment filled with energy and potential for growth.

As a successful serial entrepreneur and software developer, Ken Myers knows a winning business idea when he hears it. He’s built and scaled multiple technology companies from the ground up since 1999, with a specific focus upon consumer internet operations, marketing, information technology, and cybersecurity.

Before joining The Postage, Ken served in a variety of executive positions for leading online companies, including WhiteFence.com, CMN.com, and Mainline.gg. At each, he effectively combined his passion for consumer online security with a penchant for regularly exceeding sales projections. His companies have developed robust conversion platforms that also provide powerful and compelling user experience, complete with patents to ensure customer safety.

Ken has a Master of Business Leadership from Upper Iowa University, with multiple certifications in cybersecurity, software development, and technology services. When he’s not busy serving on The Postage leadership team, he’s a SAG actor and producer who also loves spending time with his wife, Jolene, and their three children as they enjoy Houston, TX.
