Max Romer joined GiveSmart™ in 2010 as co-founder of BidSmart and Mobile Event Technologies prior to rebranding as GiveSmart™. As a London native, Max introduced a world leading technology to the US in 2011, through license agreements with AuctionsByCellular. After developing a seamless partnership with both SOTD DBA AuctionsByCellular and AuctionsByCellular Productions, Max and his team decided to merge with the groups to form what is known today as GiveSmart™.
Prior to the merger and current role as CTO of GiveSmart™, Max acquired over 15 years experience in event technology, leading to his team realizing a niche opportunity in mobile bidding for non-profit silent auctions.
Simultaneously to overseeing the transformation into GiveSmart™ US, Max also launched GiveSmart™ UK, and an Authorized Agency of the GiveSmart™ technology in Asia, while continuing to manage Addbox (a UK based digital agency). With a diverse history of technical and creative experience across web applications, Max has managed web, video and marketing divisions of digital agencies in the UK, including co-founding Addbox, which was the original company that conceived the idea of the GiveSmart™ platform.
Max loves cars and spending time with his family. He works tirelessly due to his passion for supporting non-profits and making a difference through technology and customer service, as well as, is the epitome of a great teammate.

What Our Customers Say
You and your team at GiveSmart have been a tremendous resource. From the early planning phases to event day GiveSmart has provided us with exceptional support and guidance. At our most important event of the year GiveSmart helped us to deliver a successful auction experience. Please extend our sincere appreciation to your team.
During my time with LLS, I have not experienced working with a vendor with such a high level of customer service, before, during and after the event! The GiveSmart team enhanced our revenue generation during every process of the event. We continued to use this service with our Man Woman of the Year® campaigns in 2015, and look forward to having their services at our upcoming events!
I am a GiveSmart customer for life. This technology has taken what used to be a HUGE headache for our small non-profit and turned it into something that helps us raise even more funds while eliminating the hassle of processing payments and handling check-out. I can’t believe we ever used to do this on our own with bid sheets and credit card swipers!
Thank you again so much for making the Foothill High School Marching Band Silent Auction such a success. Allowing anyone with a smartphone or computer to participate in the Silent Auction is truly the next level of charitable giving. You were positive and motivating right from the start. You made what seemed like an overwhelming task possible.
