Founding Team

Over three decades of experience with network protocols, cybersecurity and IT management, Tom has earned his reputation as a technology visionary and a hands-on leader. He is both an idea guy and a workhorse – a rare combination of innovation, execution and integrity. Tom has built and led organizations as large as 100 people and managed multimillion-dollar budgets.

In 2006, Tom founded the Reid Consulting Group, offering a range of services including strategic planning, IT and network architecture, competitive procurement and project management. He quickly became an invaluable resource for C-level executives and policymakers, as well as a champion for rural broadband and health care.

The SEED Protocol sprouted from Tom’s relationships with rural health care providers who were looking both for better and safer ways to “do Health Information Exchange” and cheaper ways to secure and store patient medical records. Tom sat down with a blank sheet of paper – ignoring existing methods and their accompanying pitfalls – and got to work designing the future of Health IT. The result was broader than health care. It was a quantum leap in cybersecurity now known as the SEED Protocol, delivering unprecedented security, portability and control for your confidential information.

Dennie brings groundbreaking tech innovations to life. A software engineer with extensive cloud and middleware experience, he has taken leadership roles with multiple startups. He’s served as CTO for seven different up-and-coming companies over the course of his career.

But what sets Dennie apart is the projects he chooses to develop. In 2007, he founded Dev Team 7, fulfilling his dream of managing a small, elite team with a singular focus on quality. They are selective about the projects they take on, carefully considering the client behind the idea and what they are trying to accomplish.

Dennie is drawn to ideas that have the potential to change the world. He’s developed tools to stop drivers from texting and help celebrities increase awareness and raise money for their favorite charities. Now, with SEED Protocol, he continues his streak of delivering solutions that are part product, part social movement.
