Career highlights spanning nearly 30 years in Outsourcing and IT:
Business Director/Manager/Program Manager
In response to the need for more product development capability, decided to look at global resources. Evaluated several countries, partners/vendors, business structure to determine best fit for Tandemís business needs. As a result of this effort, foresaw the emergence of India as a provider of software services nearly 10 years before most others in the industry. Led the pioneering effort to set up offshore development centers replete with infrastructure, management, people and processes for engineering and support of mission critical applications. This business model has since been widely emulated in the industry. This initiative improved time to market and resulted in $15M in savings, a contribution of 14% of 1995 EPS. Radically altered criteria for making product launch decisions -- provided capability to build more products faster with less capital and reduced risk.
