CIO | Driving Excellence Across the Digital Enterprise



Let's connect:

Many businesses struggle with effectively engaging IT. I get it, I really do. IT represents a big chunk of your SG&A expense.

So Mr or Ms CEO/COO/Owner/Audit Committee Chair/Board of Directors, what value does YOUR organization get out of writing that big check every month?

Well... I can help. By cutting through the complexity and facilitating IT engagement in a business and revenue improvement context.

As a seasoned Chief Information Officer and technology executive, I have over 25 years of senior leadership experience with multinational publicly traded and private enterprises.

My background is in the discrete manufacturing and engineer to order sectors within the aerospace, transportation, and energy vertical markets.

My multinational and public background provides unique long term experience in developing and leading large scale, mission critical global portfolios. I have significant experience with regulatory compliance challenges, and internal controls design.

I have a demonstrated M&A leadership success record; integrating business strategies, practices and infrastructure across multiple global operating units in the US, China, Singapore, UK, France, Germany, Canada, and the UAE.

I am known for building and leading high performance teams; working directly with my customers in their enterprise systems integration efforts, and that I am a CIO who delivers technology, process, and product management strategies along industry trends; while meeting deadlines, and delivering results.

As a technical expert, I came up through the technology, engineering and manufacturing ranks; experienced with the order to cash process in a lean manufacturing environment.

I have a passion for public speaking, small & mid-market enterprises and non-profit organizations.

I am interested in leading M&A for IT; technology portfolio modernization, global project teams and overall business transformation through enabling technology.

Dale Schuerman, Senior Epicor Consultant | Insights Global ERP Conference

Ross represents the next wave of dynamic speakers on Enterprise Software and Global Project concerns. His presentations have covered the pulse of enterprise leadership, and are consistently engaging. I heard Ross speak at two Global ERP conferences, and in both cases Ross had the interest from the audience from the start. I would highly recommend engaging Ross, or his conference participation.
