I lead the IT Operations Team at Sports Endeavors in Hillsborough, NC, a mighty band who achieve great things under tight constraint of time and resources through hard work, attention to detail, and can-do spirit . I believe by serving the needs of my team they will be able to go the extra mile to serve the needs of our customers.
"A man. A plan. A canal. Panama." The palindrome gets it right. Great things don't just happen. With a plan and the right team you can build anything. Effective project management is crucial for building engineering feats or getting through what needs to be done by 6:00PM. Someone once said the secret to success is making a list at the start of each day of what needs to be done then doing them. Simple but ultimately essential. Experience working with both Agile and waterfall methodologies where they work best using Basecamp, JIRA, and /or Excel Gantt charts.
CyberSecurity and Compliance
No matter how much we spend on hardware and IT solutions the human factor will always be biggest vulnerability and best opportunity for security. Security awareness efforts are essential to all security and compliance strategies.
For over 10 years I have worked with the team that brings SOCCER.COM and LACROSSE.COM to life and have made them the top retail stores in the world for their sports. Our Priority One since Day One has been: "All customers must be able to securely purchase all available products 24 x 365." We have spent many sleepless nights to make that happen but know how important it is to our customers around the world.
