I have worked with a mining company since January 2004 and have designed and implemented a multi-year information technology strategy to improve back-office IT infrastructure and information sharing business processes in preparation for expanded operations.
I have prepared a GIS Strategic plan for a local municipality. The strategic plan involved assessing current technology and business processes to achieve the goal of streamlining, standardizing and improving service levels
I served as the Program Manager for the Design, Development, and Certification of the RJ85 Next Generation Airtanker. The program was the most complex engineering and certification program undertaken by Conair in their 40 year history. I was privileged to be selected to lead this extraordinary effort. While the program seamed to have more risk events than one could possibly anticipate, the air tanker program successfully delivered three certified aircraft and the company has gone on to build three more.
I assisted a trucking firm in their replacement of a trucking management software system. The project involved documenting requirements, selecting the right vendor and managing the implementation of the software. The new platform has enabled the company to further leverage additional technology solutions for mobile truck management.
