Who We Are

Alex Walter

Alex brings 18 years of Maximo/EAM consulting experience in Life Sciences, Oil & Gas, Water/Waste Management, Government facilities, and much more. He has been awarded the honor of IBM Champion from 2018-2021, and is the brainchild behind our revolutionary mobile solution MxMobile.

In his free time he buys camping gear, enjoys a good circular saw and spends time with his family hiking, surfing and being outdoors.

Kim Walter

Kim began her career in Investment Banking in the Biotech and Tech sectors. After leaving banking, she focused on executive strategic development evolving her business building skills. Co-founding A3J Group was a natural fit with the idea of creating a fierce ninja style unit that outperforms all others. In her free time, she is training for her next eventing competition or studying to become a Master of Wine or practicing her tornado kick. She could be with her family hiking or surfing or cooking. But she’s definitely not sitting around doing nothing.

Kelly Nimmo

Director of Products and Senior Analyst
Kelly heads up our product development team and is a senior analyst with more than 11 years EAM/Maximo experience. She is the architect behind our flagship product offering MxMobile. She holds Maximo certifications in both functional and technical disciplines up to Maximo version 7.

In her free time if you don't find her on her boat, fishing and enjoying the beautiful Florida outdoors, then she's probably on the soccer field teaching her nieces and nephews how to do the around the world.

Bob Richardson

Director of Managed Services and Senior Analyst
Bob has led more than 50 (but less than ∞) Maximo projects with top notch client satisfaction – so he must be doing something right. He is a seasoned veteran who heads our operational & managed services team. He is instrumental in developing many of our solutions and holds Maximo certifications in both functional and technical disciplines up to version 7.

Bob might or might not like squirrels. He enjoys traveling with his wife and outdoor activities. He has also been known to spend long hours in his garage contemplating life.

Courtney LeBlanc

Business Analyst
Courtney is a polished Maximo consultant with over 10 years working in the industry. She has worn many hats including QA Specialist, Trainer, Functional Lead, Project Lead and Business Analyst. A point of great professional pride for Courtney is helping clients meet their needs and realize the power of their investment. Being a part of the process that helps clients learn how to use their system and get the most out of it is a great feeling at the end of the day.

Michael Hatcher

Jr Business Analyst
New to the EAM industry, Michael brings with him over 4 years of marketing experience. As a Florida native he has employed his amicable spirit in the categories of hospitality, retail (Go Publix!), and most recently radio. He is a go getter, and is always thinking outside the box. Michael loves a challenge, and greets it head on with his creativity and critical thinking skills.

If Michael is not home on the Emerald Coast paddle boarding and fishing, he is likely hiking the mountains of North America or exploring a new city for its culture and rich cuisine.

Xavier Galarza

Maximo Analyst
I am a recent graduate who is motivated to learn and develop new skills. I like to challenge myself every day. I want to learn all about Maximo in order to teach others how effective Maximo can be for them. I have a good understanding of the development side and work well with problem solving. I am grateful for the position I am in, I love surrounding myself with great people that are more knowledgeable than me who will help me grow as a person. In my free time I love to play videos games, watch/ play sports and spend time with family. I am a competitive person and believe I am pretty good at all sports. My other passion is to stream video games I play and connect with others online, I love showing others how to play a certain game or even show them a skill didn’t know existed. I love entertaining others and creating content for others to watch and enjoy.


Maximo Analyst
Derrick is someone who lives for mental exercise. New challenges spin his problem solving wheels. Defeat is not an option and challenges make him smile. His catch phrase is “I’m an Engineer”. Derrick takes pride in his work. He is a highly self-driven talent when it comes to his interests and programming couldn’t be any higher on this list.
Outside of the office Derricks interests includes cars, motorcycles, and anything generally fast and loud. He stays in the loop on latest in tech, loves gaming and most of all is a die-hard anime fan. Outside of bike night, you are most likely to catch him relaxing in the glow of lights from his PC.


Maximo Analyst
Sarah is a recent graduate starting her asset management career. She counts fast learning and determination as key skills that she’s applying to become an Maximo pro! Sarah’s background in IT Services and studies in computer science have strengthened her natural problem-solving skills and desire to help others through technology. In her free time, Sarah enjoys baking, sewing, reading comic books, and building her own video game.


At A3J Group, we enjoy taking part of community activities and being a small part of the change for good. Every member of our team plays an active role in giving back to the community. At times, this can include health walks, exposing other people’s children to raccoons (the Boy Scout’s motto: “Be Prepared”) or helping them create air-powered rockets to learn about science and engineering. We’re excited to participate in some new opportunities this year.
