The Company

UThisMe, LLC was formed in 2012 by Seth Lachterman , David Ackerman, and Cameron Melville. Originally designed to address SMS and email security, our app, YouThisMe® grew to encompass cloaking posts and tweets in social media.

In 2014, UThisMe, LLC partnered with Columbia Memorial Hospital in extending our technology to Healthcare environments: UTM:Healthcare, a self-contained communication app for hospitals, medical offices, nursing homes and hospice agencies. In October, as well, the U.S. Patent office granted UThisMe, LLC. a patent for the our core technology.

Our History

In 2012, Seth Lachterman, developer of the proprietary and patented YouThisMe® technology, felt that ordinary seemingly mundane messages and social media posts could cloak important private communications. He brought this idea to David Ackerman, a CPA and entrepreneur, who, as partner, brought in an invaluable group of interested parties to be advisors and managers.

Cameron Melville, a musician and entrepreneur as well, became the final member of our triumvirate. He founded the philanthropic center, The Vortex LA. His family founded the philanthropic foundation, the Melville Charitable Trust. Our credo has been to ensure privacy in communications for everyone in an age that increasingly exposes what we say and think to unwanted eyes and ears. By 2014, YouThisMe® had brought in the management and marketing skills of Mark Orton and Jan Woodcock.

In that year, Columbia Memorial Hospital partnered with YouThisMe® in launching our technology for Healthcare and HIPAA communications which has greatly broadened the reach of our offering.
