CollapseAccomplishments

Highlights:

Two major accomplishments involved my demonstration of "save the day" instances, where my common sense and superior planning allowed me to ward off business catastrophes. The first one involved a major snafu that threatened the timely go-live of a new software application (called ICMS) in Rio de Janeiro. With 2 months remaining before rollout, I devised a solution to the problem and with other team members whom I supervised, succeeded in working 7 days a week around the clock to fix the problem and meet the deadline. The second one involved a $1.5 million contract with the Philadelphia Airport to develop and install an AVI system (like the PA Turnpike's EZ-Pass) where, despite vendor subcontractor resistance and to preserve integrity, I called an immediate halt to the rollout of the system when discovering and demonstrating a faulty calculation in the code that would have caused overcharges to the Ground Transportation operators. This headed off an uproar from taxi drivers, loss of confidence from airport management, and the PR nightmare of negative media coverage. The problem was resolved and the corrected system was rolled out 2 days later. A third accomplishment involved my single handed design and coding of the application to support Intracorp’s flagship Medical Review System (MRS) which resulted in $400 million in annual revenue generated by the MRS service. A fourth accomplishment was my oversight of Parkway's development and installation of a data warehouse, where the first deliverable was a daily report requested by the President showing him actual parking revenue (v.s. budget) generated across the enterprise of parking locations in Philadelphia and 7 other cities. I personally developed this report in 2002 and today in 2021 it still runs 365 days a year, unchanged from its original design. This demonstrates my ability to get clearly stated business requirements from business users and effectively produce the desired results.
