• Orchestrated a digital transformation and turned around another “troubled” transformation.

The key challenges were influencing stakeholders to invest and managing strategic change with the staff.

• Developed and executed data and analytics strategies that empowered stakeholders to make data-informed decisions.
• Led two turnarounds: a problematic “digitization” and a troubled global operations and systems transformation.
• Co-led 35 M&A acquisitions, improved all phases, averted redundancies for a greater realization of synergy and value, and streamlined operations and IT. Transformed IT from a service provider to a strategic partner, and created Shared Services.
• Led a cultural transformation and cultivated an environment where people are inspired, challenged, self-motivated and highly engaged.
