Cell: 612-***-****


I am seeking a position that will take advantage of my experience and let me feel I have made a positive difference.

I have successfully managed numerous projects from cradle to grave, satisfying client expectations and balancing employee workload. My depth of knowledge in Information Systems combined with my broad business experience provides me with a unique perspective on managing software projects large and small. I have worked in Defense environments, financial, government, corporate, small business - virtually just about every work environment imaginable. I have over a decade of experience in loyalty programs and hands-on, interactive development in the programs to support them. Using a Content Management System (CMS) that I developed and copyrighted, which included Customer Relationship Management (CRM) elements, I have spearheaded programs for mobile-friendly websites, merchant accounts, interactive and subscription text campaign systems, and traditional web sites with an aggregating portal component. I have written complex shopping carts and managed PCI compliance requirements.

My style, based on Peter Drucker’s teachings, closely emulates Agile, with continual, short interactions with developers and clients to stay on top of the action, ensure quick turnarounds, and keep projects progressing smoothly. I typically use an iterative method that will work best for the product and the customer. I am used to a fast-paced environment where goals can change quickly and deadlines are short.
