technical co-founder and vp design
Paolo began his time with Solutionz as our resident rock star. As the technical co-founder of our venture, TripProximity, he was instrumental in bringing our game changing ideas to life. Once the platform work was completed, as we shifted to building out the company infrastructure, Paolo has continued to run his development and filming business, and is now an executive advisor.
At the age of 13, Paolo began creating technology to solve problems. He has a magical ability to command pixels, bits and bytes to do his bidding. He sees solutions from the customer’s perspective, which is an incredible talent in a developer. His early work and more than a decade of design and development experience led to his most recent role as the Head of Development for a media firm in the UK.
Problem solving and innovation is in his DNA, which makes him a perfect fit for Solutionz. Paolo has built a Content Management System that is now a part of the company’s incubator program.
technical co-founder and vp architecture
Adam and Paolo began working together as young teens and so when Paolo joined Solutionz as our technical co-founder, it was natural for him to bring Adam along. His always sunny disposition (despite the lack of sunshine in the UK!) coupled with his broad talent set makes him an incredible asset to Solutionz.
Don’t let his youthful appearance fool you. Adam has well over a decade of experience in networks and systems architecture, as well as in system security and development.
He is a talented developer and has contributed to both our widget product and the creation of a game changing portal for the management of client and company analytics. He also contributed to the design and distribution of our smart trip tools through third party platforms.
Adam has been named as one of our co-inventors on some of the newest TripProximity inventions.
Like Paolo, Adam continues to work in their development business while we work on building out the company infrastructure and scale up revenues. He is now an advisor to our CTO.
Digital Marketing Manager
Saba joined Solutionz in the fall of 2021 as a contractor, but she quickly made herself invaluable to the team. She is youngest member of the team and our second internationally based team member. She is responsible for our corporate web design, as well as site design and digital marketing support for the company.
Saba is a student and a lifelong learner. Her willingness to learn any new tool thrown at her is a part of her magic. She takes on tough challenges and impossible tasks. She turns them into possibilities.
