He brings years of experience in systems development, strategic consulting, business analysis, and product development. In Rio, he led his team in developing and delivering user-friendly software to clients, from start to finish.
As Director of Technology, he leads a diverse team of technology professionals working with creative and marketing teams. LMS and GEM currently serve two major, publicly-traded companies full-time.

“We have very talented people here,” he said at a recent meeting at the Orlando office. “We have the resources to accomplish a lot of things.”
Enhancing communications between the Orlando and Fort Lauderdale teams has been a priority since he started. His influence is evident, with teammates taking working trips to each other’s offices and increasingly combining forces as needed.
Development of the xOpsTools, a custom CRM that supports the OceanMedallion™ for client partner Princess Cruises, is also an ongoing project he oversees. xOpsTools is a monitoring and troubleshooting program that includes process automation, ensuring a seamless flow for the MedallionClass® experiences on all Princess Cruises ships.
The DevOps Team operates the xOpsTools that supports the OceanMedallion™, a wearable device that offers hands-free access to services, including boarding, stateroom keys, and payments for drinks and meals. The system operates discreetly and runs 24/7/365 with real-time monitoring by the team.
“I came to LMS for several reasons,” he explains. “The first is because of the company values, the track record of achievement, and the fact that LMS has strong and exciting plans for the future.”
Documentation of technical procedures, functionality, and architecture is also a focus Anderson prioritizes. He is a full-stack tech fluent in web development’s front and back end with more than a decade of experience leading a team. He knows all aspects of technological operations and is a quick thinker who can assess situations from a broad perspective.
