I joined Forterro in February 2013 as Chief Technology Officer. I am responsible for software engineering process development and execution, architectural planning for all products, and cost management for a global engineering staff located in development centers in three countries.

Throughout my career, I served in technical management positions at several Fortune 500 companies, holding responsibility for software design, consulting and global IT infrastructure growth.

I designed and implemented multiple software organizations including designing the software development processes for an ERP software vendor and a Siemens software product subsidiary and I designed the 24/7 operational processes for the No. 1 automotive Web site on the Internet, www.toyota.com. I also served as Vice President of Software Development for BondNet Trading Systems where I was responsible for the design and construction of a nationwide distributed bond trading system. In an earlier role, I also worked as the Director of the Object Oriented Consulting practice for Tier Technologies.
