Adan K. Pope

A venerated technologist and serial CTO, Adan trusts that the answers to your most difficult challenges exist somewhere in your marketplace and he makes it his mission to help you chart your path to success. If you’re a CEO, you turn to Adan when technology hype starts to look more like a panacea than an enabler. If you’re his peer, he will run toward the fire with you as you try to reinvent your business. If you’re a team leader, he will show you how to make informed judgments so you can confidently drive measurable business performance.

Peter J. Buonfiglio

Peter is the guy you go to when you begin to realize that ”you don’t know what you don’t know.” He is the guy you want with you when you are starring into the open pit of uncertainty that you will surely face at times of disruption and challenge. He is the thick-skinned, “let’s figure this out,” pragmatic New Yorker whose thoughtfully researched counsel steadfastly rings true. Peter suffers no fools and goes where the facts take him and expects the same of those around him.
