My career success is built upon consistently applying technology to business for profit, delivering benefits for clients and creating wealth for shareholders and employees.

– Currently recognized as an expert in sea level rise, greenhouse gas accounting and reporting for supply chains and enterprise carbon management software.
– On faculty at the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute.
– Rigorous carbon accounting expertise with executive level experience globally.
– Contributed to the new supply chain greenhouse gas accounting standard.
– Working at the intersection of business performance and environmental performance — driving value.

As a management consulting partner at Ernst & Young, I specialized in supply chain and enterprise systems, and advised many Fortune 500 executives and companies. Especially gratifying was an endeavor to discover, harvest and teach leading practices for achieving business results with enterprise software, based on the firm’s portfolio of 175+ ERP implementations such as SAP.

I am accomplished at large-scale, complex project & program management. I have held operational executive roles in software, consulting, and business process management, in the U.S. and Europe.

I served on the boards of Robin Hood Ventures and the Pennsylvania Angel Network, and advise multiple early-stage companies.

I began my career at Setpoint, a firm providing process control technology, software and implementation services. After rapidly climbing the technical ladder, I shifted to business development, starting the company’s licensing activities and setting up initial overseas operations. I implemented the company’s international strategy, leading acquisitions and startup activities to establish Netherlands and U.K. operations. Residing in Europe for 4 years, I served as president of Setpoint Europe and chairman of Setpoint Systems (U.K.) and Setpoint Ipcos (The Netherlands).

I have published many articles and am a contributing author to CIO Wisdom II – More Best Practices(Prentice Hall, 2006). I am a frequent invited speaker on technology and IT trends and often serve on review panels at University of Pennsylvania and Wharton.

I earned an electrical engineering degree from Stanford University and completed The Management Program at Rice University’s graduate school of business.

I am a licensed Professional Engineer and co-inventor on multiple patent applications.

And that’s just the beginning…
