Summary A senior level manager with Management Systems International's (MSI) Information Management Services (IMS) division, working with business end users as well as supporting internal executive business analytic efforts. Although the role's anchor was supporting MSIs project and proposal database (Deltek Costpoint CRM), the successful link between that data source and all other business systems was essential. Concurrently, I was a senior program manager and sector analyst in policy reform, democratic governance and environment and natural resource management. I facilitated corporate relationships in both the Prime and Sub contractor roles on contracts involving civic participation. I was always successful in navigating sensitive cultural situations, working under pressure, managing through chaos and conflict, while building strong relationships and trust with participating parties. Many of my projects involved conference planning, small grant programs and development of project management systems with the international donor and development communities, NGO/PVOs, and host governments.
