Adam Kolawa, Parasoft co-founder and CEO, came to the United States from Poland in 1983 to pursue his Ph.D. In 1987, he and a group of fellow graduate students founded Parasoft to create value-added products that could significantly improve the software development process. In the late 1990s he started a successful offshoot of Parasoft, Predixis Corporation. Predixis is based on a five year, multi-million dollar research and development effort that focuses on pattern recognition technology with two products - MusicMagic for sound, and FoodMagic for food. Kolawa has been granted eight patents for the technologies behind his innovative tools.
Kolawa, co-author of Bulletproofing Web Applications (Hungry Minds 2001), has contributed to and written commentary pieces and technical articles for various leading publications such as Software Development, CIO Magazine and SD Times. Additionally he has presented on software quality, trends and development issues at various industry conferences. Kolawa holds a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the California Institute of Technology. In 2001, Kolawa was awarded the Los Angeles Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year Award in the software category.
