Ross Gordon

Ross Gordon

Founder & CEO

Ross grew up in Minneapolis, MN and fell in love with fishing the first time his dad took him to lake Minnetonka. In 2012 Ross founded Mystery Tackle Box as a way to help anglers discover new fishing lures. Prior to founding MTB, Ross founded a number of other successful tech and media companies. In 2016 Ross established Catch Co. as the corporate brand for Mystery Tackle Box and other fishing projects the company is working on.

Andy Timko

Andy Timko

COO

Andy spent more time riding through the hilly forest preserves of New England’s Merrimack Valley on his beloved Trek 850 mountain bike than with his fishing pole, but learned to love and appreciate the outdoors from his grandfather, Paul, who spent many years as a Forest Ranger with the United States Forest Service and his father, Mike, an avid birder. Prior to joining Catch Co., Andy was a management consultant with Bain & Co. and an investment analyst with Mousse Partners.

Ryan McDonnell

Ryan McDonnell

Co-Founder & CTO

Born and raised in southern California, Ryan grew up in the middle of surf and snow. At age seven, he caught his first fish but didn’t know how to reel it in. Instead, he just ran away from the water and dragged it onto the shore. Prior to joining MTB, Ryan helped co-found CraftJack with Ross, served as CTO there, and ran a boutique software development firm specializing in advertising and marketing analytics.

Tim MacGuidwin

Tim MacGuidwin

Tim learned to fish as a kid from his grandfather, an avid hunter and angler. Prior to joining Catch Co., Tim was an operations leader at LCatterton and a management consultant at Mckinsey and Company.
