NearForm has appointed Felicia Schwartz as Head of Delivery for North America and Shaun Anderson as Field CTO.
In their new roles, Felicia and Shaun will be focused on supporting NearForm’s continued US expansion following successful growth investment from Columbia Capital in February 2021.
Felicia and Shaun’s combined years of experience in the world of digital transformation will empower them to lead delivery in the Americas, focussing on helping large enterprises with complex problems, modernize their legacy systems and build new, agile, customer-centric software solutions catered to their business needs. Ultimately, Felicia and Shaun will ensure that NearForm’s rapidly growing portfolio of large, enterprise clients are provided with the expertise to move away from archaic solutions and architectures to remain competitive in a fast-paced digital environment.
Based in New York, Felicia joins NearForm with a wealth of experience creating digital solutions to ensure customer satisfaction across the financial services, healthcare and telecommunications industries. Most recently, Felicia served as Global Director of Application Solutions at VMware Tanzu Labs, formerly known as Pivotal Labs, where she helped clients safely and securely modernize legacy applications to take advantage of modern application architectures and cloud capabilities.
Based in Denver, Shaun also joins NearForm from VMware, where he most recently led the enterprise system and modernization practice. Shaun is the inventor of the Swift Method, a domain-driven design process for quickly understanding the behaviour of complex software systems. Shaun specializes in building enterprise production-grade digital products and modernization strategies for large enterprises, with a breadth of experience in delivering mission-critical systems across the financial, health care, retail and aerospace sectors.
“As an Irish founded company that has just celebrated 10 years of incredible growth, we are thrilled to establish a wider presence in the US market. The US market is ripe for growth in the space of digitisation, and welcoming seasoned experts like Felicia and Shaun to our growing US-based team will continue to push forward our expansion efforts at pace.”
