Amadeus Consulting announced today that John Basso, its co-founder and chief operating officer, has been named to the Denver Business Journal's "Forty Under 40" list for 2005. The annual award celebrates the achievements of young executives in the greater Denver business community who have achieved professional success and made a positive impact on their community.
Founded in 1994 by John Basso and Lisa Calkins, Amadeus Consulting has earned a reputation as one of the leading custom software development consultancies in the country. This success is due to John's role in building and retaining the company's team of elite software developers who have earned an impressive track record of successful software development projects for their clients.
John has also devoted significant time volunteering for the FIRST Robotics Competition, an international, non-profit organization that teams engineering professionals with 25,000 high school science students for annual engineering design problem solving competitions. John's involvement in the organization led to the first regional competition in 2003, and his Boulder team advanced to the national competition.
John supports the local community of software development professionals in their technical and career development by hosting monthly meetings of the Boulder Visual Studio Users Group at Amadeus. The meetings include presentations by leaders in the field of software development in .NET technology. Amadeus is also a sponsor of the organization.
In addition, John has donated his personal time and company resources to support many local, non-profit organizations including MESA - Moving to End Sexual Assault, the Boulder chapter of Business and Professional Women and the BPW Education Foundation, The Pulmonary Hypertension Organization and The Access Fund.
