Meet The Team
President & CTO
Bryan Buus is the President of Adeptive. Thought leader, wine enthusaist, and overall nice guy, he and his company have shaken up the title and escrow software market. Bryan founded and grew the business over the past 10+ years from scratch. Coming from a technical background, he and his team had a different approach to the business — determine what their customers really needed, build it, and support it with outstanding customer service.
Prior to Adeptive, Bryan was a founding member and Vice President at XOR, a Boulder startup, where he headed the firm’s web and Internet services division. He lead the development and management of eBusiness offerings for companies such as Whole Foods Markets, The Sporting News, SkiNet, GOLFonline, Alamo Rent a Car, Vitamins.com, the Kentucky Derby/Churchill Downs, and others. He helped XOR grow to over 500 employees during the Internet heyday. He coauthored the book “Managing Internet Information Services,” published by O’Reilly and Associates and holds a Bachelor and Masters degree in Computer Science from Boston University.
Senior Vice President, Operations
Scott Gustlin runs day to day operations at Adeptive. His experience in helping software companies grow and best serve their customers, community, employees and partners has led him all over the United States and Europe. While his career started with his head in the clouds (he helped build the final Space Shuttle, Endeavor and design experimental spacecraft for NASA), he has spent the past 25 years in the passionate pursuit of using technology to better business.
When he takes time away from trying to figure out how to make the Adeptive community’s (customers, staff, and partners) job better, easier, and faster, Scott is typically enjoying what life and Colorado have to offer with his family: skiing/snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking and working to tire out the family’s new Siberian Husky puppy: Nikita.
