Previously Rob was Director of IT for Final Draft, the industry standard for screenwriting software, where he updated, streamlined, and consolidated its IT infrastructure, increasing operational efficiency and creating a scalable technology foundation for business growth.
Rob also worked at Baseline Studio Systems, an online database and research service for the film and television industries where he quickly rose through the ranks.

Gary relocated to Los Angeles ten years ago and has since worked his way to becoming the Vice President of IT Operations for ecommerce companies with annual revenues of 800 Million. In 2015, Gary started VIP IT Inc with long time technology colleague Rob Miller and has been focused on developing a talented team to provide our clients with outstanding support.
