Robert M. Garvin, PMP

Cell: 253-***-****


By way of introduction, I am a PM with over 18 years of Project Management and Project Planning experience. I have developed a very accommodating and team-centric leadership style, encouraging participation and consensus to bring team members and organizations that might otherwise have varying goals to work together towards common objectives in the interest of successfully implementing a project.


I have managed complex computing infrastructure installations and configurations in the U.S., Asia and Europe, adding value and reducing costs to the enterprise by standardizing tools and methodologies.

I have been successful in leading cross-functional teams in multi-cultural environments.

I have decades of experience leading both production and IT teams using methodologies outlined in the PMI PMBOK, (Project Management Body of Knowledge) and current Agile concepts. This experience allows me to be nimble in adjusting to change or risks that may impact budget or schedule.
