Personal Statement

I am passionate about applying technology in new and innovative ways to solve existing business challenges or to enhance business performance through lowering costs, raising revenues, or increasing customer satisfaction and raising loyalty.  I have experience working on selling solutions into business ("the seller)  and deploying solutions within the enterprise ("the buyer"). I believe the best performing companies over time are the companies that keep "fun" on the agenda.
