Biography

Brian M. Maouad founded Advance2000 in 1990 shortly after graduating from the SUNY at Buffalo Electrical Engineering program. He self-funded all his ventures as he began Advance2000 from his basement in Amherst, NY as a build-to-order high performance workstation manufacturer. His main customers included Steve Jobs's NeXTSTEP Computer Company. Thereafter, he shifted the business to service the SMB market in numerous metropolitan cities with a focus on IT services.

Today, the company continues to provide these traditional services while moving its customers to the Advance2000 Cloud—a set of self-funded "Green" Tier 3 datacenters. Advance 2000 employs nearly 120 employees and has revenue exceeding $50 million. As a serial entrepreneur, in 2001, Brian co-founded Classifieds Plus, a leading business process outsourcer for the print media and acted as President and CIO. In 2007, Classifieds Plus's revenue exceeded $80 million, at which time Brian sold his interest and that same year founded Logistics Dynamics, a freight management provider, were he acts as Chairman and Head of the board with revenue greater than $30 Million. Brian is active in numerous charitable organizations and provides on-demand mentorship as he strongly believes that a CEO is first and foremost a Chief Educational Officer.
