Office 365 / Microsoft Teams / Governance
Even after 20 years in the space, my passion for technology and the transformation it can bring is a primary reason I get out of bed each morning. My career has involved both business and technical management roles, and I credit that experience for giving me a deep understanding of the priorities and concerns of both sides of the organization. I have gotten to know first- hand that the success and effectiveness of any technology initiative within an organization is directly related to the quality of the communication between these two sides of the business and building bridges between the two is a part of the work I do every day.
I have an extensive IT Pro background in both on-premises and cloud infrastructure as well as many years working with both well-established and innovative new collaboration technologies. In my current role as Sr. VP of Product Strategy for an industry-leading ISV that builds migration, management, governance/compliance and productivity solutions on the Microsoft Azure platform, I have the good fortune to work with some of the largest and most complex organizations as they begin to pivot their business to a cloud first, mobile first world. While I love consulting directly with customers about their specific needs, I am also a regular speaker at industry events and conferences and frequently have the good fortune to contribute to press and analyst research.
Best of all, my corporate life gives me lots of opportunities to pursue other passions like traveling and experiencing the many and varied food cultures of the world.
