Candidate's LinkedIn page
I'm a seasoned business IT leader and strategist. I am skilled in program & project management, and in understanding business needs and IT realities.
As an employee, and as a consultant, I have delivered systems essential to the continuing success of businesses I've partnered with, including an eCommerce Web site and a pilot Retail POS/eCommerce/Mobile integration solution for an insurance company, and a specialty CRM application for a municipal tax assessment services company.
I've worn many hats in my career - programmer, manager, architect, analyst, and strategist. As a result, I have the ability to lead and manage multi-disciplinary projects and to navigate complex challenges.
-- I have a unique ability to understand and map between business needs and IT realities. In other words, I speak fluent geek, executive, engineer, shop floor, marketer, supplier, and difficult customer. Clear communication means better understanding. Better understanding means fewer mistakes, and mistakes cost money, sometimes a lot of money.
-- I have been building teams and directing development since Tim Berners-Lee invented the Web.
-- I do not care who gets credit.
-- I solve problems, for the long term.
-- I am the calm one.
-- Things aren't as complicated as we often make them. I follow the same simple truisms in my professional life as I do in my personal life, "Do unto others ..." and "leave it better than you found it."
I'm a bit of an extrovert, so reach out if you want to talk technology, business, running, eastern philosophy, post modern authors, etc...
