As a technology leader with a background in Finance, I am drawn to IT management because of the variety and constant change, from solving new business challenges to improving existing systems. With technology advancing and quickly changing every day, I am always excited by the opportunities it brings. My financial background has benefited me as an IT leader; it is important that projects will either increase revenue or reduce costs/improve efficiency, and my background equips me well for aligning IT solutions with business objectives. At Edwards Lifesciences, I create processes, standards and protocols that consistently achieve customer satisfaction, company and client cost savings, regulatory compliance, and one-stop-shop solutions. Edwards is an innovator and global leader in the science of heart valves and hemodynamic monitoring. >> With 15 plus years of achievements in directing Global IT programs, my influence and positive changes have enhanced technology throughout Asia-Pacific, Europe, as well as in North and Central America. >> Working collaboratively with the CIO, I manage IT relationships globally for functional areas such as Finance, Human Resources, and Legal. >> I have led successful global multi-million-dollar ERP implementations, process improvement, and system application conversion projects; I have demonstrated my business acumen and talent for developing multi-year technology roadmaps that align with business goals. >> Supervising and developing up to 50 plus team members (Managers, Functional Architects, Business Systems Analysts and Developers), I ensure the seamless and cost-effective completion of enterprise applications (cloud and on-premise) and standardized processes that improve and streamline collaboration, data management, and reporting.
