2012 CIO of the Year Speech

2012 CIO of the Year Speech

I use cutting-edge technology to achieve high-level strategic business objectives and have a history of proven startup and business experience.  Known for both conceptualizing and delivering complex technology solutions on time and budget, as well as my hands-on approach in all web tiers— leading by example. I have a superior record developing, maintaining, and motivating highly-focused teams.  With over 25 years of experience, I have a complete understanding of the business product cycle, demonstrating this with focused day-to-day decisions and working as part of executive management to craft both technical and overall strategy to fit a company’s competitive needs. I’m a master of the Scrum Agile process. Additionally, I am a solid communicator, excelling at presenting company ideas, goals and objectives to both technical and non-technical stakeholders.

In 2012, Boston Business Journal and Mass High Tech named me the 2012 CIO of the Year in the Corporate category.

My products have been nominated for a Smithsonian award, and I hold three patents.
