Who We Are
We're a small team, committed to creating great experiences for parents and professionals facing difficult situations.
Ben Coltrin co-founded Custody X Change in 2003, at the age of 21. He had no investors and decided to quit his job, which was difficult financially and was also a risky career decision.
Ben has a Bachelor of Computer Science from California State University Sacramento, and a Master of Business Administration from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Ben is a father of two young girls, Eleanor (pictured) and Clara.
I found the software very easy to use. It’s flexible, making a tough job with a tricky schedule easier to work out.
