I am a resourceful senior level technical professional with broad-based and progressive leadership experience. After obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering, I started my career as a Project Engineer at a National Accident Cause and Prevention Research group. As part of that role I co-managed the design, development and deployment of a world-class electronic operating system which reduced number of workplace accidents by 85% while increasing freight throughput by 130% in volume.
In my current role as Manager Business Systems, DT Customer Applications at UTAS, I lead programs and projects focused on delivery of critical data, sustainability, and business critical MS Dynamics CRM initiatives. I oversee internal and outsourced, on/offshore project teams and related procurement practices, drive and implement improvements to internal processes, operations and best SDLC practices across the organization.
In my recent experience as Program Manager Identity Lifecycle and Access Management, Chief Security Organization at AT&T, I led a program focused on user security and development of various biometric identification management technologies and managed an application rationalization program. I provided key input into process flows and assisted in shaping roles and responsibilities for a restructured organization.
Previously, I successfully managed up to thirty enterprise level and small releases annually, encompassing over thirty projects for a multi-platform application area. In that role I directed diverse on/offshore project teams operating by Waterfall and Agile methodologies in a highly matrixed environment. Prior to that role I was a Sr. Project Manager at Moore Medical/McKesson leading diverse programs while managing a software delivery team of 17 direct reports across all phases of SDLC, from business analysis to implementation and production support.
