Curriculum vitae




* I was tasked by the Gen-i Vice President to determine how to solve their monthly billing problems
(losses of $2.5 - $3.0 million per month in billing mistakes).
* I determined that of the 11 totally separate ticketing systems currently in use at Telecom (none of
which communicated with each other, and that no employee had access to all of them) that the SAP
system was the best candidate to control not just billing, but project management as well, since all the
necessary modules had been paid for and installed.
* All that was required was to activate all the SAP modules, and then to pay a yearly licensing fee of
$500,000 to give all staff access to SAP. This would also give financial overview of each project, as
well as a standardized template for project management, while saving the company $35 million dollars
a year.
* I was tasked to do a Service Improvement Program (SIP) with the client: Department of Corrections
(a Ministry of the New Zealand government).
* I determined that no one on the project had a clear concept of what the contracted obligations were
to the customer because the contracts had been misplaced. I assigned one of my Business Analysts
to do nothing but locate and codify the missing contracts.
* I also put a stop to adding addendums to contracts with email notifications (as these always got lost,
or were deleted when a staff member quit -at a turnover loss of 70% of staff per year company wide).
* I discovered that there was a secure IP communication network already in place to transfer secured
data over the interview between the customer and Telecom (which includes blueprints to all prisons in
New Zealand).
* I reported this to management for immediate action.
* I discovered that none of the servers hosting the customer's data were secured (either data or
physical), as the sub-contractor (EDS) would not provide any information on the physical location of
the services, nor whether these were stand alone boxes, or multiple drives in a single box - ad
violating security protocols.
* I reported this to management for immediate action.

* As part of my primary task: I attended all international telephone conferences between Nissan

* As part of my primary task: I was required to response to, and design ITIL compliant solutions to
various Deloitte audit points: which included 17,000 "unknown user accounts" on the Nissan
Mainframe - in Mainframe environments a User Account can be tied directly to specific manufacturing
process - so you could not deleted 17,000 unknown users account because you would then shut
down all manufacturing processes worldwide.
* Deloitte also wanted documented proof of "segregation of duties" in relation to how secure the
company's financial databases were which contained customer information.
* I had to base my solutions on ITIL, COBiT, SOX and JSOX standards (Nissan North American is in
a "Free Enterprise Zone" and therefore technically on Japanese soil, and under direct requirement to
comply with Japanese government standards). With the help of Satyam, I documented a procedure
that demonstrated that there was "segregation of duties" and that management had oversight of the
procedure.
