Work History

Briefly, here are some highlights of my 15-year career in Project Management:

01. Enterprise Software Implementation.

While working for Golden State Foods I managed the implementation of an enterprise wide antivirus and email archival system. I also managed the decommission of the legacy antivirus and archival system. I managed the collection, integrity, and implementation of 2.5 TB of company emails into the McAfee archival system. I supervised internal engineers and external vendors. I created project deliverable, managed meetings, and reported project progress to upper management.

02. Enterprise NAS Refresh.

I managed the procurement process for an Enterprise Network Attached Storage (NAS) Initiative and data center consolidation.  I worked with SMEs to develop the RFP.  I facilitated vendor meetings with NetApp, EMC, HP, IBM, Hitachi, Oracle, Mainline and Trace3.  I facilitated internal core team meetings with SMEs from 5 divisions.  I facilitated the bidder’s conference including the vendor demonstrations.  I developed schedules and timelines.  I developed storage recommendations and presented them to upper management.

03. National Laptop Rollout.

While working for Corinthian Colleges I managed a national laptop rollout (87 campuses, 755 laptops).  I supervised all aspects of the imaging, shipping, and installation.  I worked with multiple vendors and on-site Administrators to ensure timely delivery and installation.  I communicated with campus Presidents and Deans to ensure a high degree of stakeholder satisfaction.  I discovered and corrected a $50,000 error in the imaging process.  The project was ranked #4 out of 67 on Corinthian Colleges’ priority list; delivered on time and under budget.
