Max Duckler

Max Duckler


Max has worked in the television post production industry for 35 years. He started his career in San Francisco as a videotape editor, but was wooed to the Northland by a big moose and a bag of wild rice, along with the offer to help build one of the country's first all digital post-production facilities. While serving there as VP of Post Production, a little loon told him, "Hey, you better start a captioning company--and you better be sure you offer the best service and highest quality in the world." So he did.

Since starting CaptionMax in 1993, Max has grown his company from a one-man operation to a business that employs over 100 people in locations across the country. Max works with his executive team in sales and marketing, personnel development, and identifying growth opportunities. He is also highly active in decisions related to chocolate. As a leader in media accessibility, Max has been a member of several boards and speaks at a number of national events and seminars on media accessibility.

Max is proud of the highly talented team that makes up the CaptionMax family, and he is passionate about the evolution of accessibility as the technology and avenues of content distribution explode.

Max graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz, with a degree in Biology. Max enjoys watching marine mammals and beach bonfires with his wife Suzanne and their dog, Berkeley. When not hanging with the peeps at CaptionMax, you can find Max at his daughter’s soda bottling plant or his son’s tea warehouse throwing beverage related puns at them to elicit eye rolls.
