Bell Labs Holmdel
Since my early days at Bell Labs and AT&T I have been imbued with a deep appreciation for all that is required to have a service orientation. At the Labs we built our redundant computers for central office switches to have less than one failure in 40 years (a little over-designed by today’s standards). I was also trained that everything had to be by procedure and that written standards would be followed. Great foundations.
AT&T Basking Ridge
… Network Ops
My philosophy of management is to first get the right people on the bus. I want customer-focused people at every level. I require resourcefulness and people who are cool under pressure. I am passionate about the service we offer and those under me know it. I believe in developing people and pushing responsibility down. I also stand by my people. They are allowed an occasional mistake as long as they learn from it.
Most recently I helped turn around a global communications company (SDN Global) while refinancing and restructuring the company.
