03/17/2012 13:52:55 -0400 – My history is in three stages.
In the beginning, June 1976 , the first 4 years on the job computer sciences programming to executive office experience. Next 5 years as a project / program manager. I built trading rooms on Wall Street. Then to Europe to build rooms in Victoria and the City of London. This created a reputation of delivering cutting edge results in solutions constrained by tight budgets, limited execution time frames and complex user requirements.
The next phase, leadership and operating at the C level. Our goal to building transaction processing, clearing and settlement systems while expanding and operating a 120 point European network, requiring 5 nines and capacity for Seasonal peaks: quality initiatives, EDP audits, information engineering techniques, innovation and product leadership.
Got caught up in smart cards, EMV, fraud, identity, credential, certificates and cryptography; we can claim responsibility for the technology in 1.4 billion Bank Cards and 20 million merchant terminals.
I did, have one occasion to engineer a 35% downsizing, resulting from my commissioning as the Director European Telecommunications, Shearson Lehman, London. An interesting memory of what we are currently going through (circa September 15th, 2008).
In 1984 I established PA&A and employ it only some most interesting periods of my career. I successfully created the ability to help business, operations and technology executive view their opportunities and issues. Focusing on client value, drive mentor products and projects, look at operations & solutions while focusing stakeholder returns.
In 2008 I was thinking is about Mobile Financial Services circa 2009.
