Roland de Filippi
Sr. Vice President,
Software

Roland's specialty is anticipating and seamlessly integrating user needs into the design, development, and delivery of a product and accompanying services. Trained as both an Architect and as a programmer, he has combined these two abilities to design and deliver outstanding applications in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) and IT industries.

Roland has fifteen years of software industry experience, much of which has involved working with distributed teams. At Gensler, he delivered to Wells Fargo Bank a graphic based facilities management system to manage twelve million square feet in two hundred sites. At ABT and Niku, as a Senior Product Manager Roland managed the design and delivery of Workbench, a database based enterprise project management and scheduling application. He also provided all project management design content to Niku Director, a zero client, XML based web based project and resource management application. Just before coming to GPD, at Energetics, an international energy consulting firm, Roland managed a remote team in Sydney to develop an international release of a client-web server based energy auditing application.

Previously Roland has worked in the construction industry both designing and renovating buildings. As an avid car buff, he has restored many cars, trucks, and motorcycles and continues to maintain two late 60's classic muscle cars. Roland holds a BS in History and Public Policy, a Bachelor of Architecture, and a MS in CAD Systems Design from Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.
