See who’s steering our ship.
Boy, we get it – software companies are a dime a dozen these days. So, what makes On Now Digital any better than the next shop? Honestly, it’s our people. Corny but true. We have a lean, ultra-motivated team that genuinely cares about helping you. And that has both the business and tech chops to do it.
Here’s a quick introduction to our leadership:
Business Manager Mark O’Brien brings a rare blend of logical, linear thinking and hyper-creative troubleshooting – with an uncanny ability to translate tech speak into plain English. In addition to uncovering market needs and lending his results-tuned consulting ear, Mark is responsible for managing our daily operations, prioritizing product development, allocating resources, and ordering the coffee. Luckily, he’s a good multi-tasker. Mark has helped to assemble a team that values agility and innovation and operates under the golden rule of treating everyone as you want to be treated. He’s an IEEE member, holds a B.S. in finance and management from Houghton College, and has 10+ years of experience as a digital project manager and entrepreneur. Outside of the office, Mark is a volunteer youth basketball coach and (self-appointed) NBA historian.
Manager of Development and Delivery Brett Rose is always prepared. Maybe that stems from his 20+ years of experience, his B.S. in computer science from Baker College, his past work in industrial automation, or from his time serving as an electronics technician in the U.S. Navy. Yep, Brett is ready to tackle any challenge … usually with both short- and long-term options. In his current role, he takes the lead on concept development, quality assurance and solution scalability with a healthy dose of project management and methodology. Brett also plays a big part in keeping the team up-to-date on emerging software trends and best practices. When he’s not staring at a screen, he loves spending time outdoors and once spent eight hours stranded in the actual Bermuda Triangle. Talk about problem-solving at its finest!

That’s right, in his spare time, Bill enjoys beekeeping. If you play your cards right, you might get to try some of his home-harvested honey.
