I thrive on transforming businesses to exploit new technology and the data generated/collected to build new monetized business value through a consulting and collaborative approach. Over my 14 year career at Intel, I have done exactly that, for Global Fortune 100 companies. My most resent role at Intel was Director of Connected Car Cloud and Autonomous Driving for Toyota, Nissan and Hyundai/Kai. That role span both business and technical aspects of solution development. This was done working on-site with Intel/Toyota architects and senior management (CEO-1 and -2) at Intel/Toyota to co-develop solutions, business cases and roadmaps to achieve shared business objectives. That engagement was hands-on and extremely complex due to many factors. Chiefly, Toyota was new to technology transformation and “they don’t know, what they don’t know” and I had to take them through the solution development journey from the basics to complexity of what they wanted to archive and it represents a planned multi-billion opportunity for Toyota over the next 2-5years.
