RssDirector of IT - Data Center High Availability Operations - Disaster Recovery - Southern California

I’m an organized, self-motivated IT Executive Director who ensures that services/infrastructure workloads are carefully planned and consistently deployed on time, under budget and with high quality results. I was recently the Disaster Recovery/High Availability Manager at Expeditors International of WA in Seattle, and formerly the CIO & Pres. - Sr. BC/DR Program Director at CWN Business Technologies in Renton, WA. My IS/IT experience of over 27 years in Backup/Restores, Business Impact Analysis, Capacity Planning, Change/Problem Management, Configuration Management, Data Center Operations, Disaster Recovery, DB Replication, Gap/Root Cause Analysis, Infrastructure Designs, ITIL V3, NOC Monitoring, Production Engineering, Quality Assurance, Server Administration, Service Delivery, Site Availability/Reliability, Storage Management, Tier 1 & 2 Incident Response, and Virtualization has spanned the Financial, Energy, Logistics, Government, Healthcare, and Technology sectors. This allowed me to direct and successfully complete many large scale efforts that were of strategic importance and complex in nature. Such initiatives include: Operational Excellence in Enterprise Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Planning and Testing; Data Center Operations and Production Engineering; Infrastructure Design, Deployment, Execution, and Maintenance; Network High Availability and Site Reliability; NOC Incident Response and Escalation: and Strategic Planning with Executive Management and Technology Groups. My technical program management core competencies include: • Audit and Regulatory Compliance while meeting Site Reliability/High Availability OLA/SLA Goals • Budget & Fiscal, Best Return on Investment, Total Cost of Ownership, and Vendor Management • Capacity Planning, Configuration Management, KPI Program Metrics, and Operations Forecasting • Interact/Lead IT Operational Excellence with Cross-Domain Functional Areas of Responsibilities • Excellent Technical Collaboration, Analysis and Recommendation Presentations to Executives In addition, I am accredited with the Certified Business Continuity Professional and Project Management Professional designations. I adhere to a high code of ethics which demands honesty, honor, integrity, and respect when collaborating during business engagements and the performance of my responsibilities. My years of IT management experience, strong organizational and planning skills, certifications and ability to work on multifaceted and diverse assignments simultaneously will allow me to successfully engage in and benefit from this challenging position. As an experienced director of IT and data center professionals, I have implemented cost effective deliverables in a timely and efficient manner without impact to the customer experience or production environment. All goals met the company’s service level agreements for high availability of business and technology solutions while staying compliant to regulatory objectives.
