He led the development of the company’s proprietary Raisers Edge® plug-in for nonprofit donation processing and integration. Schmidt has 14 years of professional experience in automotive and military manufacturing, complemented by concentrated technology experience.

Suzy ElFishawy brings 20 years of experience in web-based and client-server systems to the role of Senior Developer.
