Dear IT Hiring Sir/ Madam:
Immediate hiring opportunity so act quickly
Dear Hiring Manager,
Facilitating business and customer IT implementation growth and productivity thr
ough the effective
alignment of technology development and product implementations are just a few o
f the many ways
I was successful in impacting operational performance, profitability, and compet
itiveness during my
extensive career with industry leaders Duke University Health Technology Solutio
ns (DHTS) and
IBM Corporation. With 23 years of IT experience in directing technology, product
development, IT
change management leadership, marketing programs and projects, I offer a unique
combination of
managerial, customer perspective, and technical expertise. I am seeking to contr
ibute to an
organization such as yours in an IT management position; Ive included my resume
for your

Recently, as of August 2010, I worked with the DHTS team playing a key role of 2
4x7 Senior IT
Operations Manager, Senior IT Business Operations Analyst, and Change Management
lead for all
Duke Medical systems enforcing IT continuity focused on patient care and staff I
T systems for all
supported vendor hardware and software and for all Duke owned software and hardw
are in their
data centers. I also had the task of leading disaster recovery plans and configu
ration management
database updates (CMDB). I recently left Duke to find a new opportunity to get b
ack into
management that leverages my recent Duke customer experience with my Duke and IB
M
management experience.
In the past with IBM, I played an instrumental role in the enhancement of techno
logies and business
performance in roles such as Software Development Release Manager, Product Marke
ting
Manager, Project Manager, and Program Director. During my time with IBM, I playe
d a key role in
the success of multi-million dollar products and programs with IBM Lotus, Web Sp
here, Tivoli, and
others. A sample of my many achievements includes:
h Facilitating over $690M through the effective development and deployment of a
management
and product offering strategy for IBMs network systems management product.
h Serving as Business Product and Market Manager for the highly successful Tivol
i line.
h Producing marketing plans to support the $500M Lotus Workplace program.
h Building a new product line from $0 to $170M in only 3 years.
h Managing the introduction of a new product that eventually delivered $10M in r
evenue.
h Directing software development, product testing, and quality teams.
I am adept at leading technical teams, and serving as the liaison between busine
ss and technical
groups. My work has included conducting training, coordinating design and delive
ry of new
initiatives, leading program revitalization activities, and implementing best pr
actices. Throughout my
career, Ive ensured IBMs ability to outperform its competitors and delivered Duk
e Medicine IT
technical contacts and leadership expertise.
For a more detailed presentation of my skills and background, please review the
enclosed resume
and feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.
