Igor Braginsky, PhD
President & CEO
Igor Braginsky is a Founder and CEO at NIX United. He dedicates his vast knowledge, experience, and effort to the company’s growth, simultaneously supporting and developing the local business community and professional organizations in the Tampa Bay area of Florida.
Mr. Braginsky is an accomplished expert with more than 30 years’ experience in software engineering, professional services and IT outsourcing. Before founding NIX in Tampa, Florida, he developed several prominent high-tech businesses, both in Ukraine and Israel. He took leadership of his very first garage startup in 1994 and grew it into a powerhouse of more than 2,000 people, becoming a trailblazer of the emerging Ukrainian IT industry. Besides IT, Igor has a solid leadership background in printing and agribusiness.
In all his companies, Igor developed a unique approach to the client and built a strong corporate culture, in which the whole team shares responsibility with its captain. Thousands of completed projects together with years of providing high-quality services for international corporations have resulted in a unique project and product management experience.
Igor holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science. He graduated from Kharkiv Polytechnic University in 1996 and later completed the Advanced Management Program in Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and the Senior Executive Program at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Although fully absorbed with his business and its perspectives, Igor is an avid yachtsman, a skiing enthusiast, a keen golfer, and an experienced shooter. Pursuing something as a hobby, he takes it very seriously and sometimes goes to a competitive level. Thus, he has the status of Practical Shooting International Master of Sports in Ukraine and holds the Bronze Award in the World Championship in 2012 as the captain of the Ukrainian national team.
“We won the client’s trust by diving deep into their business model. We placed a great emphasis on understanding their needs and processes and worked hard to provide an outsourced delivery center that works just as good as an in-house team or even better,” , says Mr. Braginsky about the company’s business model.
“Our aim is to lead customers on how to outsource their IT demands, how to transform their business internally if needed, and how to overcome the fears and negative experiences from the past with the new solutions done right from day one.”
