Key Services Offered:
Expert analysis and guidance to help with the overwhelming issues of running small to mid-sized businesses.

Core Experience of Principal:
Over 20+ years of executive experience in the financial services industry and during that time I've earned my way up every rung of the corporate information technology ladder. Early in my career, I operated and managed systems and departments at Western Union. Most recently, I've held the position of Managing Director, Information Technology and Regional Technology Officer ­ Americas for ABN AMRO. As Managing Director, IT & RTO ­ Americas, I had overall responsibility for the direction and control of all wholesale banking information systems and technology activities. I led the ABN Americas' systems initiatives in identifying and responding to emerging issues, such as implementing a content management solution and an enterprise storage solution to address the need for enterprise wide content and information management long before the Sarbanes-Oxley Act became the driving force in the industry. I led the consolidation of disparate accounting systems into a financial information processing and reporting solution. I established a QA process for application packaging and software distribution work to reduce the amount of post implementation support required. I established an Architecture Office to help realize the benefits of architectural, application, and processes standardization and formed a more streamlined IT organization. Most recently, I've implemented a governance model that aligned the regional Americas team with their international counterparts and created a uniform global systems organization. Also under my leadership, the firm uniformly reduced managed costs in all IT areas. In the 20+ years that my career has spanned the financial services industry, I've focused on identifying, developing and implementing cost effective, innovative technology solutions, whilst also building business focused technology teams. My ability to accomplish this time and time again has been rewarded by increasingly greater leadership positions at Carroll McEntee, UBS Warburg, Morgan Stanley, Fuji Securities, and ICI/ADP.
