We are pleased to announce the arrival of Scott Shapiro to the Next Gear Solutions family.

Scott has over 20 years of professional software development experience, both as an employee and as an entrepreneur. He takes pride in delivering the best possible end-user experience by streamlining, standardizing, and optimizing software for ease-of-use and productivity. After receiving his degree in Computer Engineering from Penn State, Scott spent the first five years of his career with IBM, primarily doing PC operating system and cross-platform development. Eager to move into business applications, Scott founded Internet Information Systems, a software development and consulting company where he and his team designed workflow-based content management systems for government agencies and Fortune 500 companies such as: ALFA Insurance, AutoZone, Bank of America, Charles Schwab, and Computer Associates (CA).

Scott also gained valuable experience in insurance claim processing with successful consulting projects for Kemper Insurance, MacNeill Group (the largest MGA in Florida), and several private claim adjusters. In the past few years, prior to joining Next Gear, Scott designed web-based advertising and monetization platforms for CityTwist, Domain Holdings Group and Madison Ave Media, all Florida-based digital media companies.

We are very excited to have Scott join our team.
