Where do you live in? Austin, Texas

How long have you worked in information management? 

Over ten years in consulting and professional services, supply chain, information management, and software.

What does your work entail? Do you have company support? How are you helping drive the goals of your office through your work?

With my extensive relationships and contacts in the private sector, my objective is to expand our vertical market exposure and client base outside of the public sector.

What has been the biggest success in your career in information management? 

While the Client Partner for Capgemini, I sold and led the Finance Taxonomy Transformation work for Steve Balmer at Microsoft.  This project had obvious exposure and was an effort to normalize Finance Taxonomy as a precursor to Microsoft simplifying their Enterprise Licensing pricing structure.  The ultimate goals of the program were to reduce the 3000 pricing permutations down to 1500 and transition from Excel to Dynamics for financial reporting.

What’s your current biggest work challenge?

Building a business from scratch.  IQBG is an awesome company just not well known outside of the public sector. I am responsible for building our commercial business.

What are the top 3 things you are looking to get from your AIIM membership? 

Networking, Education, and Fellowship.
