  • Directed and managed a large scale colo-network build with many vendors (Verizon, NTT-data and TEKsystems) as well as internal architects and engineers. We built a 1GB circuit followed by a 10gb circuit connected from the old Johnson Controls data center.
  • Implemented an MPLS, internet connections and installed VM and server hardware, with domain configurations and security.
  • Expedited orders from Verizon by going thru cisco, which help improve delivery times.
  • Led a large-scale Windows 10 upgrade migration by hiring and managing 40-45 resources with turnover around the country at various plant and corporate locations. In addition, we upgraded 3800/10900 machines in 7 months on a US/Global Scale.
  • Thus, these two projects were very key in a 900M transition management office initiative.

  • Led a website security initiative project with Sirius and Aon internal security team GSS to develop a security proposal on what kind of MFA tool would be needed for their SharePoint Online Client environment.
  • It was determined that Okta MFA would need to be implemented before Aon’s client specific SharePoint migration could be available on the cloud.
  • I could see at this point we wouldn’t be able to hit the end of April deadline with the current setup. So, to ensure delivery, I negotiated a discount on 5 new Sharegate licenses and doubled the team size. Resulting in delivering the last site one week before the end of April.
  • We also had a scope change of 200 more sites which I was also able to mitigate the risk by delivering ahead of schedule.
  • I also advised them to implement a SharePoint site deletion tracking tool. So business users could find out who removed the site in a more efficient manner then pulling up backups.
