Jan Deruiter, Exec. Dir. and Board MemberOwner, MostlyWeb, Inc.

headshot-jan-300x300Jan Deruiter started his career in computers in 1985 when he landed a job with a pioneering software development company just one year after the Mac (“128”) was introduced. After outgrowing the facilities at the Science Center, the company went on to become an early leader in graphics software for both the Mac and early Windows.

In 1996, he founded MostlyWeb.com an Internet Design and Development company that has created hundreds of websites and other projects on behalf of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Aetna, American Hospital Association, Northwestern U., and many other large/small companies and non-profits.

Jan got involved with PCF while working to raise money for a local school’s computer lab and the creation of a fully outfitted library. Thankfully, Abby Thaker from Mt. Airy USA saw the synergies and put Jan in touch with PCF.

For fun, Jan teaches computer literacy and 3D Printing to 5th graders and supports various STEM programs in Philadelphia public schools throughout NW Philadelphia.
