Brian received his degree in Mechanical Engineering from Union College in 1988. After graduating, he joined Otis Elevator where he learned how to effectively sell and that he was good with computers. With these new skills, Brian quit Otis and started an IT consulting business, Vision Systems, in Albany, NY. After ten years of consulting, Brian founded Autotask, a leading provider of IT Business Management software.
In 2004 Brian had successfully exited both of his businesses and was ready for something new. He founded a WiFi hotspot installation company, WiFiFee, now called Deep Blue Communications. Deep Blue was recently acquired by Comcast and is a market leader in engineering, installing and supporting WiFi networks across North America. The company has been growing by 30 – 50% every year.
