About Me

I am the CXO of Executive Solution Innovation℠. ESI℠ works with executives in Mergers, Acquisitions, and Transformations. ESI℠ assesses and leverages the following “CORP” resources, pre & post-merger, and during transformations to optimize the strategic results across industries such as Health Care, Insurance, Mortgage, Information Technology, Benefit Administration, & Professional Services:
• Contract Evaluation

• Risk Management

I've functioned as an Executive Leader, who has been in client and vendor roles, with more than three decades of applied interdisciplinary expertise integrating technology, process engineering, portfolio benefit realization, and complex vendor solutions of up to $11 Billion in portfolio value, which has enabled me to both rapidly diagnose enterprise challenges and propose cost effective options and strategies. I have been a trusted advisor to C-Level Executive Teams ensuring awareness of risk mitigation, regulatory implications, industry trends, and geopolitical elements.

I have had varying global responsibilities ranging from critical situation management to strategic marketing exclusivity. I have lived and worked abroad and traveled to over one-hundred cities across multiple continents which has been an instrumental factor to my ability to keenly pinpoint and critique what is the same rather than just what may appear to be different.

I thrive and welcome challenges to optimize companies at an executive and enterprise level by providing fact-based neutral perspectives while collaborating with others for a shared sense of urgency and accountability for realized strategic value creation.

I have over 30 years of experience leading enterprise transformation, operational risk, strategic sourcing, vendor management, and IT/business projects in large corporations including IBM, Towers Perrin, PHH, and Philadelphia North American Services. I've created metrics based Enterprise Project Office and Strategic Sourcing Provider Governance Teams who have provided complex internal and client funded solutions. I'm adept at vendor contract negotiations, with indicative and measurable SLAs, resulting in both year-over-year multi-million dollar savings for my employers while improving the vendor partnerships for win-win results. Within the organizations for which I have worked, I am known for providing internal strategic consultation, objective assessment of complex issues, pragmatic solution implementation, and fact-based decision making.
