  • Adam Dennis
    Vice President of Product Development

    Formerly a consultant for Dominion Dealer Solutions, Adam Dennis is now the Vice President of Product Development with the technology development staff reporting to him. We bought XIGroup from Adam in 2005, and he remained with us in a consulting role for several years. As our need to manage projects across companies grew, Adam proved to be the perfect person for such a task, as he is a good communicator, a good listener, a visionary, a usability expert, and a great project manager. Adam’s primary task will be to deliver solid products quickly and efficiently with a strong emphasis on usability. Adam will use resources in the United States and abroad to execute his mission. As we seek to deliver not only strong products independently, particularly to OEM’s who tend to support single products instead of bundles, but also as a single solution, Adam will work to ensure that we have adequate resources to be very strong both independently and combined, and that our development work is well coordinated with an emphasis on excellent project management and user testing.
