I have over twenty- five years of professional experience in technology related businesses. After several years of systems and application software engineering, my focus shifted to the management of organizations, particularly within the software industry. In that capacity, I have turned-around a variety of service organizations, significant software projects and a few start-up companies.
I have some twenty years experience in the development and implementation of business plans, process improvement and organizational development. I am extremely results-oriented and always interested in significant new challenges.
