Executive Summary

Most recently, as a Director of Technology, I have experience in designing and implementing strategic technological enhancements. I am quite proficient in all areas of information technology from basic network and workstation support to VOIP and email support, as well as virtualization and cloud-based solutions. Additionally, I am a hands-on, high-quality Dynamics GP professional. Having worked in the public accounting environment as well as with clients’ internal accounting personnel during Microsoft Dynamics GP implementations for more than seventeen years, I have acquired significant experience on both sides of the accounting and IT world. During those years, I have successfully managed relationships with internal and external customers. Identifying opportunities to streamline and automate processes as well as managing multiple simultaneous projects are just two examples of my expertise. I have developed and managed implementation project plans, including data migration or conversion and testing procedures, as well as end-user training manuals. As a Microsoft SQL Database Administrator, I have installed, managed and maintained multiple SQL Servers, including backup, restore and disaster recovery. I have created custom SQL databases utilizing self-designed proprietary data modeling, data mapping, & database schema techniques. I have also created custom SSIS packages, stored procedures, as well as created and deployed reports using SSRS. TECHNICAL SKILLS
