Jeff Ortolano
SVP, Sales and Pre-Sales Engineering

It wouldn’t be unusual to hear Jeff’s team refer to him as “Coach.” With more than 20 years of experience selling technology solutions, he has a knack for leading sales teams through the trials of deregulation, service provider consolidation, and rapid technology evolution. He uses these experiences to successfully guide his team of account managers, sales engineers, and sales support personnel. When he’s out of the office, Jeff enjoys spending time with his family and lending his coaching abilities to his kids’ lacrosse and soccer teams.

Judith Brown
VP, Human Resources

Judith’s philosophy is that the key to being successful in business is having a temperate, thoughtful, open-minded approach and a willingness to assess the many different angles of any given circumstance. Having a good sense of humor also helps. Judith applies this philosophy in her support of ShoreGroup’s employees. She has a diverse background that includes experience working in an international organization, as well as in the legal department of a national insurance carrier. Outside of work, Judith enjoys being with her family, going hiking with her husband, and tending to her garden.

Susan Andersen
Director of Marketing

“Keep calm and market on” is Sue’s motto. She enjoys nothing more than being knee-deep in a challenging marketing or sales initiative and finding ways to bring it to successful completion. She attributes her focus, sense of calm, and can-do attitude to her six-year yoga practice as both a student and instructor. These qualities have also served her well in various marketing roles over the last 25 years, during which she’s served as the principal and co-founder of two businesses. Since 2013, Sue has led the marketing and sales development organizations for ShoreGroup. Her co-workers appreciate her entrepreneurial spirit and calming presence.
