About
David is an independent contractor offering business and technology consulting
services.  With over fifteen years of experience in the fast paced retail sector, he
understands how to drive results when time is of the essence.

A
Six Sigma Black Belt from Villanova University, David knows how to employ the
DMAIC (design, measure, analyze, improve, control) process to make project dollars
count.  Certified as a
Technical Trainer by the Computing Technology Industry
Association (CompTIA), he is able to educate staff on new processes and
technologies.  

Beginning his career as a PC Administrator at Gryphon Development, customer
service became the cornerstone of David’s approach.  Focusing on the
practical
side of technology
over the theoretical, David developed a successful multi-level
training program on all desktop applications and a robust new hire  orientation
getting associates up to speed quickly and effectively.

Strong tech and business savvy were combined when he took ownership of
business systems education at Gryphon.  Authoring comprehensive manuals on
Enterprise Resource Planning (
ERP) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), he
was soon called on to manage the project management process and tools used to
develop and launch over 3,000 products a year.

Always focused on helping his users make the most of the tools at hand, David
began
developing enhancements for Gryphon’s PLM toolset (Optiva) authoring
functional specifications, QA testing and implementing change.  Setting standards
that were recognized by the vendor and global user community, David was elected to
lead the Optiva North American Client Forum.

Able to work at both the
strategic and tactical levels, David brings a unique
perspective, seeing the bigger business picture but never losing sight of the
practical and the project at hand.  Be it system implementations, process redesigns
to associate education or maximizing the value of your technology investments,
David can get things done for your organization.
