Drive and Deliver Transformation | Innovative Disruptor | Commerce | Cloud

As a Technology Leader and a Results-driven Tech-Disruptor, I’ve led digital transformation through innovative solutions, and data driven decisions and I am personally invested in translating business demands into supportable and strategic IT solutions.

With 20+ years of experience in Retail and Distribution, My career was polished with my stints at Industry leaders like Best Buy, Kroger, Nielsen Retail Research, Home Depot, Hudson Bay, NAPA Auto parts, and currently - Edible Arrangements. I have had the opportunity to strategize, and execute the IT vision and strategy as well as to lead large, multi-functional teams through implementation. What I enjoy most is leveraging versatile knowledge and experience across Technology, Infrastructure, Architecture and Operations to transform and deliver business results. Also I practice on the philosophies of ownership, collaboration and the urge for accomplishments.

In my past life, Delivered strategic engagements and portfolios that include:

- Speed to Market with Agile maturity and Machine-First automation
- Digital transformations on Retail - Online, Mobile, Both B2B and B2C
- Replatform a monolithic mission critical application into a Modern microservice based digital application using Domain driven paradigm
- Business transformation on Merchandising, Point-of-Sale, Last mile delivery optimization
- IT simplification and modernization - Microservices, Replatforming and Reengineering
- Cloud transformations - From Infrastructure on premises to Cloud

Otherwise, I see myself fit a few personas and hats - a Retail Evangelist, Industry analyst, Technology enthusiast, Transformation champion, Social blogger and a leisure photographer. A big fan of Vince Gilligan's fictitious character Saul Goodman of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.
