I have led analytics based transformation as well as BI and Analytics departments. I recently built out the Global Data and Analytics function for a major CPG player.
I can help organizations who are struggling with various aspects of IT performance, including operational, project and program, vendors relationships and outsourcing, digital transformation initiatives, cloud adoption, infrastructure renewal, employee development, and organizational scaling.

My skills can be grouped into three main categories: Corporate Skills - I have been a leader within the geophysical industry for 30+ years. During that time I performed a number of corporate roles. This included managing the M&A strategy for the company and being responsible for the acquisition of six different companies and successfully integrating them. I believe that I can add value if you are looking to add to your company via acquisition. I also managed all global license transfer settlements for the company which netted hundreds of millions of dollars. I may be able to help you with similar complex negotiations. Last, I managed the company's Investor Relations program in the US for 8 years. I may be able to provide value here if you are considering going public with your company. Business Management & Leadership - During my career I managed business units involved in the creation of geophysical and geological data and the licensing of same. My technical and business degrees were critical assets for this job. The roles covered the gamut from operational issues to sales and marketing to business strategy. Thus, if you are trying to start a business, especially if oil and gas services related, I may be able to provide guidance. Big Data & Analytics Strategy and Business Development - Over the last 3 years I have been intensely focused in this arena. I was chosen to build a business unit for my company to take the company's extensive data sets into the Cloud and to begin realizing the benefits of data analytics at scale. This job involved analysis of the technology available, the investment of millions of dollars in hardware/services, the hiring of our own data science and development team, and the development of business strategies to leverage our new capabilities. Since I retired from my full time job, I have provided guidance to smaller companies trying to do similar projects and/or trying to get their AI technology introduced into the oil and gas industry. I may be able to add value to your company if you are in a similar position.
