"The future is now! The cost of being wrong about IT is greater than it has ever been... you really need to get it right the first time these days!"

Before my engagement with DPDHL I was employed by CIBER, where I was part of the management team and responsible for project and development management in various IT projects for large to very large international customers. Before CIBER I ran my own publishing company in the health sector.
