My experience with enterprise and corporate IT Management will be of great value to agencies seeking multi-disciplinary expertise. Recent depth of expertise with emerging technologies focused on mobility and social engagement positions me to drive solutions for organizations struggling with legacy IT.

Consulting organizations through difficult transitions has resulted in an awareness of what works and what does not when recruiting, training and retaining technical staff. My perspective is that a successful team will groom successors in a collaborative exchange of information, techniques, and ideas.

My references will attest that I am a talented and effective transitional Manager – tactfully and effectively filling gaps. I strongly amplify efforts to identify, prepare and enable correct-fit successors: In both Human Resources and Capital Projects.
