In 2007, Pierre founded Sputnik Moment (formely Frazny Consulting), a new type of consulting practice with the goal of accelerating the mission of nonprofits with Salesforce technologies.
Pierre oversees all project implementations and brings his extensive experience in complex requirements gathering, Salesforce apex coding, data conversion and staff training.
Pierre received a Master’s Degree in software engineering from IFSIC in his native France. He started his career with a software company as a system engineer on UNIX and Windows environments. He then moved to object oriented technology as a consultant on Telecommunication projects. When he moved to the United States, he worked as a senior engineer with NPower AZ, where he led a team in charge of delivering comprehensive technology solutions, including on-demand CRM systems such as Salesforce.
His interest in nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations began when he was volunteering in Mali, West Africa with Geekcorps (a peace corps for techies), an organization that assists developing countries with open source technologies and infrastructure development.
