Excella launches spin-off company for tech apprenticeships at corporations

To help meet Virginia’s growing tech talent demandExcella has launched spin-off company NextUp Solutions Inc. to help corporations and nonprofits develop their own tech talent pipeline.

Launched in 2002, Arlington, Virginia-based Excella is an agile tech firm helping organizations transform their ideas into tech solutions. Its Extension Center internship program, managed at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, enables students to gain hands-on experience under the mentorship of Excella’s technologists. The Extension Center program was recently ranked #3 in the nation on Vault.com’s “2020 Best Tech & Engineering Internships” list.

This corporate restructuring will move Excella’s growing training and internship division to NextUp Solutions, a new entity that will provide services for agile/scrum training and university-based tech apprenticeships.

Former Excella CEO Steve Cooper will now serve as the NextUp Solutions CEO while cofounder and Managing Partner Burton White will serve as Excella’s CEO. Excella cofounder Jeff Gallimore will continue to serve as the company’s chief technology and innovation officer.

“The spin-off of our training and internship businesses is exactly the kind of success Excella was founded to create,” said White in a statement. “This spin-off lets these businesses focus on their learning-centered missions while our consulting business sharpens its focus: delivering bold solutions for our clients seeking to transform the world around them through technology.”
