Tony De Vita, Jr. (Chipmunk1954)

Joined 8 years ago from New Mexico




My academic background was in mathematics. Having received a B.S. summa cum laude, from Wilkes College, Wilkes-Barre, Pa. My first job was with Bell Telephone Labs in Holmdel, New Jersey during which time I received a M.S. degree (GPA 4.0/4.0) from Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ. The next ten years were spent at IBM Endicott, NY in what can be best characterized as a position specializing in data management and network support except for a company sponsored sabbatical in 1983-85 at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia earning a Masters of Science in Engineering. At Data General (1988-93), I was a project manager in the transaction processing product area, a porting manager for Ingres, and on-site representative at Oracle WHQ in Redwood Shores, CA. The 1990s can be best characterized as working with database products: Ingres, Oracle and Informix, in a variety of roles these Corporations had with their hardware partners including porting, high end Fortune 100 company support, trade show content development, staff training, and consulting. I have some experience in SAP and Oracle applications having spent some time at SAP AG HQ in Walldorf, Germany and many years at Oracle HQ in Redwood Shores. At Intel, I was part of the Intel IA-32 C/C++ Compiler Team. My C and UNIX experience dates as far back as my days at Bell Labs in the mid 1970s.

From 2002 on, while still maintaining a consulting practice, I became involved in business activities. In one case revitalizing an art gallery and in taking another company from concept to deployment.

In 2006, I was asked by the new Governor of the Pueblo of Nambé (just outside of Santa Fe) if I would serve as his Senior Advisor (2007-08). I was involved in researching Tribal history, cultural preservation activities, grant writing and administration.

At the end of the Governor’s term we launched a business Nambe Waterfalls Horseback Riding Company, LLC. I also have maintained a private consulting practice since 2002.

I am married to Josephine, a special education teacher in the Espanola School District and we have one cat Hissy-Pissy.
