CE Software

Back in 1981, president Dick Skeie ran a successful computer retail outlet in West Des Moines, Iowa, called Computer Emporium. His customers often needed custom programming, and to satisfy those needs Skeie contracted out to Don Brown, then a student at Drake University. After publishing Apple II programs for several years, they decided to jump to Mac development in 1985 so they borrowed the initials from the retail store and spun off a new company called CE Software, which went on to produce the popular QuicKeys and QuickMail packages.
