Founded in 1990

Incorporated in 1990, father and son, Eugene and Michael Hayes founded Hayes Software Systems to provide software solutions that empowered school administrators. As Vice President, Michael Hayes was responsible for software engineering, eventually leading to a promotion as the company’s President in 2000, and then CEO in 2004.

Growth & Success

In 2016, Michael Hayes transitioned to Chairman of Hayes’s Board of Directors, appointing Matt Winebright as CEO and President. With nearly 20 years of experience working with educators in the K-12 market, including four years in multiple leadership roles at Hayes, Mr. Winebright has been instrumental in the company’s growth and success.
