what people are saying
"Shane is exceptionally bright and has an instinct for creating Products that people need and will use. He is a “get it done” kind of person who does not waste time dreaming, just doing. Shane is also a very astute business man and successful entrepreneur who understands how to build successful companies. He can be relied on to make things happen, he does not see barriers, only opportunities."
— Ronald Burr, CEO at CallFire.com / Founder & CEO NetZero
"During my time at EzTexting, Shane was our fearless leader and CEO. I couldn't have asked for a better mentor and boss to learn from. He led the tech team with a deep understanding of their challenges and process, while seamlessly holding together sales, marketing, business development and customer service. His ability to both empower and train executives is something I still think about to this day. Shane is easily one of the most consistent, professional, patient and confident leaders I have ever had the privilege of working with."
— Amy Baglan, VP Sales and Development, EzTexting.com / Founder & CEO MeetMindful.com
"I was extremely fortunate to work with Shane at Ez Texting from the very beginning. As a CEO and a manager he was flexible in a way that's easy to claim to be, but rare to encounter: deeply involved on projects when his expertise and insight were invaluable, but otherwise hands off and trusting that you knew what you were doing. Without that kind of executive leadership I don't believe we could have built Ez Texting into the industry leader that it is with such a small team, lean budgets, and no outside funding. As CEO, he rapidly grew Ez Texting through both the recession (Lehman Bros collapsed a month after we were spun out of JoonBug) and a clash with T-Mobile two years later, which if handled improperly could have been devastating. Without his leadership we never could have survived, let alone prospered, through those and a thousand other challenges."
— Joshua Malin, CMO at EzTexting.com / Founder & COO VinePair.com
"I continue to be impressed by Shane’s foresight with the development of the EZ brand products. It took a thorough understanding of the potential of the Mobile SMS small business marketplace as well as the overall industry landscape to enter it with excellent technologies that filled a void. Not only is he a respected technologist, he is a bit of a futurist as he was ahead of the game when he created a product line that could also be utilized for private label. It’s the ability to see the big picture as Shane does that results in top technologies."
— Vijesh Mehta, CTO and Co-Founder, CallFire.com
"I've worked with Shane over the years as a technology service vendor as well as professionally helping him and his teams with software development as a contractor/consultant. I can confidently say that Shane is probably the single most ambitious and inspiring entreprenuer I've ever met. Working with Shane, it's immediately clear that he incredibly dedicated and puts everything into his work — always moving forward and not taking no for an answer. For perspective, it was Shane who ultimately inspired and enabled me to leave my day job and persue my dream of expanding my software consulting company, Roave. I wouldn't hesitate if you have the opportunity to work with Shane in any capacity."
— Evan Coury, Lead Developer at EzTexting.com / Founder Roave
"Shane is an extraordinary manager - both professionally and personally. He is definitely the best manager I ever had in my life. Shane never hided behind his authority, he is not afraid to be himself. He is very confident and able to make right decisions quickly and always explains other people why the particular decision was made, he is also not afraid to delegate tasks when needed. Holding a Master Degree in Computer Science Shane understands technical needs very well, sets achievable technical goals, and gives very professional advices. It’s a great pleasure to work with Shane."
— Lyuba Shipovich, CTO at EzTexting.com / VP Engineering at groundUP.io

"There are not enough good things that I can say about Shane Neman. Directly reporting to him as Lead Client Success Manager of Ez Texting for more than 3 years, I had the amazing benefit of learning an immense amount of knowledge in the areas of SMS, SaaS, as well as running amazingly successful business. Under Shane's leadership, I witnessed a very small group of dedicated and fiercely loyal people grow a small operation servicing a few thousand clients into a thriving, and immensely successful organization servicing over 50,000 SMBs and Enterprise clients. As CEO and Founder of EzTexting, Shane tirelessly worked to ensure that every client was able to receive a tremendous value; that every member of the team was able to contribute their all to the success of the company; and that every team member grew as a result of Shane's dedication, knowledge and mentoring. There was no issue that Shane didn't have an answer for and a direction to lead us all towards. He never over-promised, nor under-delivered and inspired within me the passion for the company that I carry to this day. It's an incredibly rare thing when a leader can ask you, "Have I ever let you down?" and know that the answer is, undoubtedly, no. After the acquisition of Ez Texting by CallFire in 2012, though I no longer reported directly to Shane after he transitioned to the role of Chief Product Officer for CallFire, he was always able to offer assistance, advice, guidance and remained a source of inspiration and support for me, as well as the rest of the team. His expertise and vision led to development of an amazing product pipeline for the entire CallFire organization, which I was more than proud to be a part of when he called upon me to become his product manager in mid 2014. During our collaboration as the Product team for CallFire, we put forth an incredible array of telephony and SMS products which have led, and will lead, to the continued success of the CallFire organization. As a new role for me, Shane's mentoring was instrumental in setting me up for success and I am immensely grateful for his support, wisdom, and vision. I know that I would not be able to be as effective and resourceful as I am without having the honor of knowing and working with Shane for so long. Shane is one of the greatest leaders, managers, mentors, and visionaries I've encountered. A great role model and businessman, Shane Neman is one of the strongest assets to our now global company and I'm beyond proud to be a member of the same organization as he."
— Albert Cann, Lead Client Success Manager, EzTexting.com
