Our Mission

Modernizing how Banks and Credit Unions Engage

because everyone’s time is money.

 

Our Manifesto

Coconut is about People, Passion, and Performance.

At Coconut we refuse to accept mediocrity of
our product, our performance, and the experience we deliver.

It’s not okay to say I can’t because it’s hard.

We say yes, because it’s an opportunity to explore and innovate. We don’t make excuses. Together, as a team, we get it done and do it right.

Koda

Director of Greeting – The D.O.G

Koda joined the team in 2019 when he was just a young pup. While he had very little previous experience, with a little guidance from his teammates, he’s been making leaps and bounds in his job performance and skills. Koda has been breaking down barriers with his tremendous aptitude for sitting and rolling over for treats, as well as his unique ability to sniff out good ideas (and lunch kits). He’s also in charge of napping, walks, and checking in on people with regular laps around the office.

Our Growth Story

2008

Frustrated by how hard it was to book an appointment with her massage therapist, Katherine Regnier, CEO & Founder believed there must be a better way. Booking a flight required a more sophisticated approach but was easier to do. With a $5K loan and a pencil sketch, the idea for Coconut Software was born (the original company name was 24 HR Assistant).

 

2009

Romeo Iula joined Coconut as a part-time engineer while holding a full-time position at the same digital agency as Katherine. Coconut focused on selling to SMBs, and started to make progress with part-time attention.
