ScoutAdvisor Picks Up Former Microsoft Lead SW Developer

Boston, MA – (January 25, 2010) – The leader in Major League Baseball scouting and decision making technology has added a former Microsoft development lead to their team. ScoutAdvisor welcomed Tommy Tashjian last week who joined with eight years of development experience working directly under Bill Gates. Tashjian led Microsoft’s Internal Technology Group, developing software required to run the most integral parts of the Fortune 500 Corporation.

Yates Jarvis, VP Strategy & Creative, suggested that this was the best move the sports tech company could make to “deliver on our commitment to serve clients with constant innovation, driven by open ears and great relationships. This is a new employee for all of our teams.”

In 2009, ScoutAdvisor grew its veteran market share with new multi-year relationships headed up by the Rockies, Royals, and Reds. Backed by its proprietary Source Funnel Technology®, the company’s new mobile, video, and graphing applications have caught the attention of many of the best-run MLB teams.

“Tommy’s hire represents a continuation of our promise to serve our clients with all that we’ve got,” ScoutAdvisor’s CEO Michael Morizio added. “Our cutting-edge technologies require top development talent in order to advance our systems and maintain our competitive lead in this market. Where better to pull from than Microsoft itself?”

In addition to Microsoft, Tashjian has also developed applications for many other organizations including Citizens Bank, Delta Airlines, and Bell South.
