Maybe it was the bad head cold last week, or maybe I just wanted to see if he’d stay around(!), but I realized on Friday that I hadn’t told everyone about the addition of John Brothers — our new CTO — to the Sunlight team. Sunlight is really really lucky to have John.
John has more than 13 years’ experience in managing, developing and executing full life-cycle software development. Most recently, he was the Chief Architect at Core Concept, Inc, a technology management consulting firm. Previous to that, John was the Senior Director of R&D at nuBridges, where he managed the entire software development organization for this eBusiness transaction management company. Brothers also founded and was the CTO of Incanta, a broadband-based streaming media software startup.
John’s job is to lead Sunlight’s technology’s team in creating Web applications and managing the daily operations of the Sunlight Labs, our in-house development team. He will also lead Sunlight’s long-term strategic and infrastructure IT planning.
As we begin to deploy new Web-based tools, databases and information, John’s expertise is going to take us up another notch. In short, fasten your seat belts.
