Hello, I’m John.

As a Global IT Executive, I’ve always believed that IT leaders should ascribe to the credo, “first, do no harm,” because IT must enable the business, not impede it. If an organization’s IT services are unreliable, unrepeatable, or cost too much, IT will erode business value instead of creating or improving it.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. With the right IT leadership in place, IT can shift from being seen as a cost center that provides utility services to end users, to an innovative business partner sought after for its ability to solve real business problems using technology.

Quite frankly, this is what I do best – I build world-class IT organizations by leading them through the journey that develops IT into an innovation engine capable of redefining markets, industries and competition.

I prefer to work with growing companies who have reached a scale that demands more from IT than they’re getting now; companies transitioning out of their start-up phase who need to be sure IT is capable of enabling sustainable growth; and companies in high growth mode that need to optimize or consolidate their IT organization to gain efficiencies or differentiation.

My expertise includes:

  • IT Strategy & Governance
  • Enterprise Architecture
  • Systems Integration
  • Infrastructure & Operations
  • IT Security
  • Continuous Improvement

My background is full of examples of how I’ve helped Fortune 1000 companies optimize and mature their IT organizations. If you’d like to chat about how I can help yours, feel free to contact me.
