"Bryan's leadership and passion have brought a new level of agility to our initiatives," said Brian Geitner, president of NextGear Capital. "This award is a testament to the dedication and hard work Bryan and his team have put in over the last year and we are proud of how they have represented both NextGear Capital and Cox Automotive."
Since joining the company in 2014, Everly has taken a software development team of three and expanded it to over 150 software professionals while also putting measures in place to enhance NextGear Capital's web and mobile platforms, infrastructure and security. Earlier this year, the Cox Automotive company received the IT Services for Business Mira Award from TechPoint for its development and implementation of a proprietary ERP/CRM/mobile platform, which contributed to the company doubling its revenue in 2014.
In response to receiving the award, Everly stated "I was honored to even be nominated and even more so to have been selected. Something like this could not happen without amazing support from our leadership at NextGear Capital and more broadly, Cox Automotive. In addition, I have been blessed with an amazing team that sets the bar higher every day with their incredible work."
