ALL THE INFO

The Full Story

As a Global CTO, I am passionate about leading technology evangelism, client executive advocacy, and technological and business strategy especially related to Digital Transformation and Social Innovation through my career as CTO and Senior Executive Technologist of several multi-vertical organizations from start-ups to large business services providers.


Through various technology and industry publications, I interpret and translate complex technology trends including Digital Transformation, Agile IT, Data Mobility, Governance, IoT, Analytics, and the role of the CxO. As a trusted adviser to the CIO/CTO community, my explicit goal is to ensure clients’ problems are solved and opportunities realized through the use of ecosystems of talent, technology, and information.


You can follow me as a frequent speaker at technology and industry events as well as a reoccurring lecturer at various higher educational institutions on topics ranging from IT leadership to Big Data/Internet of Things. I also serve as a member of the Masters of Business Analytics (MBAN) advisory board at Schulich School of Business, the IT Media Group’s advisory board, and the Trusted Advisory Board proving guidance on compelling issues and topics for CIOs and the vendors that serve them.
