“With Stephans at the helm, IdeaPaint expects to significantly expand its track record of product innovation and market leadership in the business-to-business sector,” the company said in a press release.

“Writable surface walls have emerged as a top workplace design trend because they encourage spontaneous interaction and serendipitous collaboration,” the release added.

According to IdeaPaint, its product is used by such organizations as Google, Apple, Harvard, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

In a statement, Stephans said, “We have a truly disruptive product that changes the way people work by helping them turn ideas into action faster than ever before.”
