The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already. – John Buchan

Leadership & Management Team
Between reviewing software specs and picking apart screens, he enjoys fine wine, road biking, boating, traveling, good food, and hanging out with his buddies over a cold beer.
Chief Operating Officer
Between managing the operations of the business & improving processes, you’ll probably find him making sawdust in his woodworking shop, fishing in Tampa Bay, or playing with his three kids.
During business hours she’s all business. “By day” she’s the notorious task master (aka Project Manager) for new client installations keeping things on track and pushing ahead … and “by night” she’s a mother (failing miserably in the kitchen), soccer player, walker/runner (dying in the Florida heat) and friend! (Ultra-reliable)
When not working on the latest version of Tropics, Bob enjoys spelunking, collecting Victorian-era steam engines, adding to his massive collection of carcharhiniformes teeth, and is working on the resurrection of the Deus Sol Invictus cult.
In addition to overseeing the functionality of Ocean and Breeze, Claire enjoys making music, listening to music, playing trivia, playing with her 5-year-old daughter, and correcting others’ spelling and grammatical errors.
In between HR and dealing with the ins and outs of the money, she enjoys getting lost in a good book and researching genealogy. Some of the best times are spent with her family though, either traveling somewhere for a quick adventure or comfy on the couch…iPad in one hand and coffee in the other.
When done caring for our clients, she is being spoiled by her husband’s fine cuisine (and works very hard to not look like she enjoys it too much!), traveling year-round to soccer games with her daughter, or enjoying time with family & friends.
During business hours, he stays busy with the sales and marketing of Tropics software, but off the clock he enjoys spending time with his wife, two children and their Miniature Goldendoodle puppy. He also likes to stay active, honing his skills on the golf course, playing tennis, and skiing (when not in Florida!).View Full Bio »
When she’s not finding creative solutions to our clients requests, she’s relaxing with a good book or watching foreign flicks on television. You might also see her finding the beat of the rhythm in Zumba class some evenings!
When she’s not demo’ing software or training users, Jamie’s climbing the mountains of south Florida on her Lefty mountain bike, catching the draft on her road bike, or taking advantage of the benefit of being a licensed pilot in her family’s plane.

While not defining the product’s future features or being a SQL geek, she can be found watching college football with her husband (GO BULLS!), watching or playing futbol (soccer) or rejuvenating herself by practicing hot yoga throughout the week.

When not busy geeking out with Tropics infrastructure, Paul can usually be found pounding out the miles on his road bike, racing cyclocross, or lounging at the beach trying to get rid of his biker tan.
Quality Assurance Manager
When he’s not putting Tropics Software through its paces to find glitches, creating new test cases, or pushing for the best user experience, he enjoys coaching, playing & watching baseball, heading up to Disney World with his family, or just watching a good movie. After 9 years, he is still looking for the person that said raising his boy-girl twins will “get easier”.

When I’m not building software, or mentoring other developers with my 30+ years of experience, I can be found traveling the tropics with my wife, or fishing for that lunker bass hiding in the weeds.View Full Bio »
When he’s not developing new software in front of his three LCD screens, he enjoys coaching, playing & watching baseball, developing an educational iPhone app, and spending time outdoors with his family. Recently he’s learned to enjoy salad and mangoes yet still prefer ice cream.
During the day he is a data junkie – but on his off hours John enjoys spending time with his family. His favorite activities with his children are riding bikes, playing driveway hockey, going to the beach, airshows and just enjoying life with them.
Tasting fine wines and putting some miles on her road bike fills the space when Rachel’s not passionately working one-on-one with development to coordinate and deliver wicked awesome software.

At Tropics you will usually find Alex managing new client implementation plans, troubleshooting EDI issues or reviewing claims specifications. After hours you might find him enjoying a college football game, entertaining family and friends at his home called ‘The Compound’ or out on his boat fishing and tubing with his wife and two daughters in Sarasota bay.

When she’s not taking care of new Breeze clients, Donna is either at home being mom to her two boys or out running and training for her next race. She is always up for a new challenge!
