In my career I have managed multiple corporate primary 24/7 data centers, IT staffs andthe entire daily, weekly and monthly deadlines that go with the day to day computer operations of companies with sales in the billions.In my last position, as part of our processing schedule, my group oversaw the daily datawarehouse process updates as well as the updating of our all of major financial systems.They also handled the recovery of all outages, either internally, or by working with theon-call programming staff. Other times, I was contacted for direction to properly resolvethe outage so that the process could complete and thus, make it deadline of 9am.I have grown the Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery at multiple companies from alimited project in scope to a multi-platform, multi-location and multi-day per exerciseevents that include recipients of multiple departments within each organization. Theseexercises are followed up with an executive summary and extensive documentation thatis essential for a project this size.I managed multiple projects as well, such as the upgrading of desktop report distributionsolution, the implementation of the mainframe job scheduler across all operating work shifts and the expansion of the business continuity policies across the entire company.Plus, I also have much experience in developing documentation, providing processimprovements and the developing and mentoring of staff. Regarding staff, in my last position, I had the lowest turnover rate of all managers in the company.
