Co-Founder & CEO of Nitobi the company behind PhoneGap and RobotReplay. Now at Adobe directing product management.
Andre is a skilled leader of people and a pragmatic and strategically-minded manager of projects. He has an uncommon ability to break complex problems into solvable components, and communicate a plan of action to team members. Andre is an extremely hard worker who is never afraid to take risks and think big.
Andre also has a rare cross-functional skill set that spans from from product marketing and strategic planning to software product development.. and at the end of the day he's able to communicate it all to anyone that needs to know.
Also, he's always up for a beer and a great guy to hit the town with.
Andre has been effective at positioning his company on the cutting edge of web apps and in exploiting that market.
Have done a number of contracts with Andre Charland, and am constantly amazed at the progress of Nitobi in the AJAX / enterprise application space. It's been a pleasure working with their technology. Andre comes across as an excellent evangelist for the industry, while keeping a detailed, managed approach to tasks. Would recommend working with him to anyone.
