My passion is to help business leaders use information to create and maximize value, and that’s something I’ve been doing for more than 25 years now. As a business intelligence strategist and solution delivery leader, it’s been my privilege to work with some of the most recognizable names in business, from mid-market growth organizations to the Fortune 500.
In early 1987 my career started with one of the mid-Atlantic region’s fastest-growing direct marketing agencies where I cut my teeth on data and the fundamentals of database marketing. I was the business guy who branded and led the first data warehousing initiative for an international package delivery company that would later become FedEx Ground. And I’m a former Deloitte manager who has spent more than 15 years in business intelligence and data warehouse consulting.
My work as a consultant flourishes for one simple reason: business leaders who effectively use information to support value creation represent the exception, not the rule. In fact, for every organization that successfully utilizes information to improve decision-making, many more fail to capitalize on the promise of BI. That’s because information, the lifeblood of every organization, is either limited or missing entirely from the decision-making process.
That’s where I come in.
My job is to engage, enable, and empower business leaders with the information they need to better manage, optimize, discover, and innovate. Hyper is a collection of the ideas, methods, and tools I've created and used over the course of my career to do just that.
The companies I've helped? Here's a small sampling:
- Swiss Army Brands
- FedEx Ground
- 4 Wheel Drive Hardware
- Flatiron Structures
- Car-Freshner Corporation
- Erie Scientific
- Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Hamilton Sundstrand
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
Today I serve as the executive in charge of business intelligence enablement for First Niagara Financial Group.
