Pete and Liz Lawrence, Current
Peter A. Lawrence and Associates, Inc., PALDOM, is owned and operated by Peter A. Lawrence, (PhD., Stanford University, 1970, Industrial Engineering–now called Management Science and Engineering).  Pete has many years of professional data processing experience, has developed more than 40 major software systems and has been a consultant for 8 major projects.

Elizabeth B. Lawrence has a BA in Economics from Stanford University, 1968, and an MS from UC Berkeley, 1969. She has taught school and run her own small business. She first started developing websites in 1997.

Liz and Pete now work together on website development, email marketing campaign design and management and on small business systems development and support.

History
In 1984 Pete began developing a comprehensive set of business application development tools, including a data base management system. All current business applications are based on these capabilities. They make system design, development, support and system enhancement more efficient and less costly than more traditional programming methods. They also provide a more stable and more error free data processing environment.

Dr. Lawrence served for two years as an Army Officer in a major Army Material Command data processing center before returning to Stanford to study for his PhD., which he received in 1970.

He then began consulting with an international consulting firm in 1972. His major project with that company was a long range study to determine the future facility requirements for the Port of Tanjuk Priok, Jakarta, Indonesia. This study involved simulating future port operations under various economic growth plans.

In 1976 he left that firm to become an independent consultant and to develop business systems software. In 1978, Peter A. Lawrence and Associates, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Washington.

Our name, PALDOM, consists of Peter’s initials, PAL, and DOM, which is short for domains.
