Corporations are weighed down by the deep, constant pull toward running the existing business, and it can make them blind to their own technology insights.

I work with customers and partners to create and deliver innovative solutions to business problems. My experience with companies of all sizes provides a unique and varied perspective that allows me to collaborate with business leaders and uncover details that might be otherwise overlooked. I work with clients on initiatives involving global delivery teams and that are aimed at significant productivity and financial improvement.
Having managed consulting offices for Coopers & Lybrand and ACT, I understand and have dealt with staff retention issues, project management and P&L responsibility. With Perot Systems and Litton Enterprise Solutions, I led large outsourcing sales efforts to successful completion. I sold application performance management (APM) solutions for CA, and at Sybase, I worked closely with many of Wall Street's large financial firms on Database, Replication and Disaster Recovery initiatives. Now at Symphony Teleca, I am directly involved in offshore outsourcing engagements and lead a key account in establishing a new model for global relationship management.
I have a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from St. Anselm College (NH), and also studied at Trinity College (CT) and Schiller College in Heidelberg, Germany. I live in CT with my wife and two youngest children, and enjoy reading, running, soccer and darts.
