Darren Wan is the Co-Founder and CEO of Easy Pairings, an online marketplace for the hospitality industry that allows restaurants to find great staff quickly and easily. The idea for Easy Pairings came from Darren’s experience as the Operating Partner of Red Egg, a popular Chinese restaurant in downtown Manhattan. For four years, Darren observed firsthand how technology is underutilized in a restaurant’s operation processes especially when it comes to its biggest pain point, the employee search and hiring process.

Prior to cofounding Easy Pairings, Darren was an integral part of growing and expanding small companies in a variety of industries such as fashion design and retail as well as general construction. Previously, Darren worked for Putnam Investments as an Analyst for their International Equities team.

Darren is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
