Local Boys Do Good

The Village Green, a news website focusing on the Maplewood-South Orange area in north central New Jersey, wrote up a nice profile of the company (“What the Heck is WhoWeUse?”), calling attention to our local roots and awesome pin drop signs popping up on lawns across town.

“WhoWeUse is the brainchild of Maplewood resident John Garbarino, who founded the company with Pete Clark and Garbarino’s new neighbor Spencer Ante. Another Maplewood resident Felix Sockwell rounds out the team as Head of Identity and Design,” wrote writer Mary Mann.

TechCrunch Covers Launch of WhoWeUse

The day got even better when Jonathan Shieber, senior editor of leading technology blog TechCrunch, covered our launch. Check out the story here.

“As local services ratings and recommendation companies like Angie’s List make headlines thanks to rumors of a prospective sale to potential buyers like Amazon, Google, or Home Depot; it’s clear that companies still need a good referral for how to get at local markets,” wrote Shieber.

“And WhoWeUse thinks it has the mobile answer to all of your local problems. The Maplewood, NJ-based company was created in the backyard bar of serial entrepreneurs and developers John Garbarino and Pete Clark and former Wall Street Journal reporter Spencer Ante.”
