Leveraging 35+ years of experience leading IT organizations in financial services and manufacturing, as well as the consultative interactions with Info-Tech’s global client base, I provide day-to-day tactical as well as strategic advice. My goal is to marry deep, practical insight with the real-world issues faced by IT leaders.
Prior to joining Info-Tech Research Group, I led the IT and IS groups of a global manufacturing firm where I planned and executed corporate integration activities supporting the company's mergers and acquisitions.
Formerly, I was IT leader for a multi-national insurance company, managing all IT functions including strategic planning, mergers and acquisition support, and legacy application conversion.
My early career began at a leading U.S. financial institution where I held various operational IT roles of increasing responsibility. Eventually, I progressed to lead the IT function for the Canadian subsidiary of the enterprise.
I have delivered presentations at industry conferences and events. I have also previously held certifications/designations such as CISA, RHCE and, MCSE.
