Greetings and a bit about myself:

I live in San Diego, California with my wife and three wonderful daughters. I worked in the Information Technology (IT) sector for several years in various IT leadership roles.  In 2014, I moved from IT into Sales Operations.

I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to work in and across many functional areas in a pharmaceutical organization. Currently, I work closely with my Commercial colleagues as I lead the Sales Operations group. In the past, I have overseen the Information Technology, Information Services (Data Warehouse), and the Facilities groups. I work collaboratively with various groups from commercial, medical, compliance, finance, legal, and the executive team. I have developed a broad experience-based knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry. I have led teams through periods of hyper-growth, product launches, acquisition integration, asset divestiture, corporate restructuring, facility expansions, and relocations.

Operations, whether corporate, support or sales in nature, must work for any organization to be successful. A prosperous operations group takes gifted people to make things happen right and when needed. These groups often go unnoticed when everything is working smoothly. I work with some of the most talented people in the industry, and we regularly invest in each other’s professional and personal development. I strongly focus on effectively utilizing operations and technology to assist the organization and people in moving business forward. Strategic planning and combined with operational execution can be leveraged to achieve a high-performance culture that delivers for its customers, team members, and all other organizational stakeholders.

My teams set high standards and expectations of excellence for each other and our external partners. We support our internal customers and external stakeholders in a friendly and caring manner while keeping operations working for optimal performance. By this approach, we deliver the value that we promise and enable our colleagues to achieve their desired goals to help healthcare professionals and the patients they serve.

Thank you and please feel free to contact me via LinkedIn or Email.
