||Here are some highlights of my experience:
I co-founded Miami Wireless, Inc. (dba Wireless Oceans) and served as vice president and chief operations officer. I developed and managed the deployment of a city-wide wireless network infrastructure which included preparing detailed business and technical requirements. Due to this leadership the company was then able to secure contracts with key development groups and prominent properties in the local area such as the Santa Maria, the Continuum, Il Villaggio, and the Metropolis.
I also founded and served as chief executive officer (CEO) of KEI Telecommunications, as well as a member of the board of directors of Kappler Enterprises, Inc. since 1998. During this period I led the company in securing several major customers such as General Electric and Agility Recovery Solutions. I engineered and managed the deployment of the network infrastructure for Agility Recovery Solutions mobile recovery units which are deployed to support and recover failing mission critical systems & applications for many Fortune 100 - 1000 corporations such as IBM, Hewlett Packard, and FedEx.
I have a long history of leadership roles in the telecommunications industry. In the mid 90ís, I served as director of project management of Volt Telecommunications Group. In that role, I was responsible for delivering a common telecommunications infrastructure to approximately 2,500 Genuine Parts Service Centers (NAPA Auto Parts) nationwide and other support offices. The project provided shared telephone (voice) systems and local and wide area computer (data) networking as part of the infrastructure implementation of the Genuine Partsí Service Centers. The shared voice and data networking capabilities promoted one-stop shopping for customers, decreased telecommunications costs, provided a common local telecommunications system, and the foundation necessary for Service Center re-engineering initiatives.
Prior to Volt, I worked for Millennium Communications Technologies as operations / project director.
This vast experience provides a unique insight into servicing the technological needs in many vertical markets.
|FUTURE PROFESSIONAL GOALS:
||My professional goals are to excel in my industry and to retire at an early age.
||I am interested in meeting other professionals in all fields. I have a broad range of knowledge in the IT and telecommunications industry and am able to consult as well as manage deployments or other IT related projects. I am also interested in meeting persons with System Integration (and related) firms who have an existing or growing customer base - who could benefit from any of the services I am able to bring to the table such as internet access, data storage, wireless, etc. - at very affordable rates.
I communicate with many people daily, mostly at upper management levels, who ask my opinions or are seeking referrals for services which I simply do not provide. I would love to build some new relationships where I will be able to refer new business as the opportunity presents. To me, a two-way business relationship is one of the most valuable assets we can possess.
