High Tech Experience

In my Director roles throughout my high tech career, I led initiatives focused on product development improvement, IT system deployment, technical organization redesigns and technical leader development. Earlier in my career I was an electronics system design engineer and customer engineer.  So I am uniquely effective when guiding executives and managers in technical groups like engineering, IT and product management.
