Bob Fleischer is our product tester. He is our newest employee; one day he just showed up in our midst. He has worked at Digital, Compaq, and HP without having to change his job. Bob uses a combination of automated testing and intuition to locate problematic aspects of Duxbury products.

David Holladay plays a variety of roles maintaining embosser and language information, as well as maintaining various internal and external web sites. David has an SB degree from MIT. David was the founder and president of Raised Dot Computing. David, along with his wife Caryn, is providing funding for the new Cosmo Brailler. He recently wrote a book of fiction.

Neal Kuniansky joined Duxbury in 1996. He is responsible for marketing and sales at Duxbury. One of Neal's passions is braille literacy and he has been known to carry this soapbox with him around the world. Neal has a BA in Publications Management from the University of GA and a Masters of Taxation from Georgia State University.

Caryn Navy handles technical support for MegaDots. She also does a variety of other tasks, including developing and supporting our JAWS script files, and Hebrew translation in DBT.

Scott Ronco has been working behind the scenes in shipping since 1997.

Andrew Sullivan has been full time since 1992. He handles shipping. He is not nostalgic for the days of floppy disks.

Genevieve Sullivan is the company treasurer. She has a bachelor's degree in accounting from Northeastern University. Like Joe, Gen enjoys International Folk Dancing with the Framingham Folk Dancers.

Awards include:

Joe is married to Gen and together they have seven children, three of whom work at Duxbury, fourteen grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Peter Sullivan is Vice President of Software Development. Peter has a bachelor's degree from MIT. If it relates to the windows, menus, fonts, or the putting together of all the pieces in the modern editions of any of our software, Peter probably did it. Click here for Peter Sullivan's CV. He directed the project to set up the nightly build process which has enhanced the quality of all of Duxbury software.

Dan Thibert is chief of operations and does some DBT technical support. He has a BS from Salve Regina University in Rhode Island and trained as an electronic technician in the US Army. He's been with the company since 1998. Motorcyles are is life. He likes to commute on his Kawasaki Concours 14.
