BroadSpire Appoints Ryan Garver As Vice President of Technology & Creates Innovative Ruby on Rails Center of Excellence

BroadSpire(R), creator of Web Ecosystem Marketing(TM), announced today the appointment of Ryan Garver as Vice President of Technology. Mr. Garver will lead the development of WebWrite(TM), BroadSpire's predictive analytics Web marketing platform, and will spearhead a newly created Ruby on Rails (RoR) Center of Excellence.

WebWrite is the central Web application in a new online marketing service called Web Ecosystem Marketing designed for Real Estate, Insurance, Automotive, Healthcare, Business and Financial Services companies and their network of affiliates. WebWrite is built on the cutting-edge Ruby on Rails programming platform.

Ruby on Rails has become a popular programming language that speeds time to market and has been quickly adopted for enterprise deployments. "Our Ruby on Rails Center of Excellence is creating state-of-the-art applications for large enterprise organizations such as CENTURY 21(R) and Sotheby's International Realty(R)," says Suresh Srinivasan, CEO of BroadSpire. "We're pleased to have Ryan spearhead this effort. The success of Web Ecosystem Marketing hinges on the security and flexibility of WebWrite to satisfy the strictest requirements of our franchise enterprise partners."

"BroadSpire has a very clear mission - to empower large organizations and their network of affiliates to be found online and gain more than ten million leads," says Mr. Garver. "This kind of scale requires a different way of thinking and non-stop feature releases. I look forward to building applications our clients can't live without."

Mr. Garver comes to BroadSpire from ELC Technologies where he was most recently their CTO. Under his leadership, technology programs were carried out for clients like Cisco and ESPN. He holds a Masters in Computer Science, is routinely invited to speak at developer conferences and is often cited as a Ruby on Rails expert.
