I learned that lesson at IBM, where I worked for many years in a number of roles. In my last one with the company—as the Vice-President of Smarter Physical Infrastructure—I became known as the “building whisperer” and was recognized as one of the top 15 people in the world in the intelligent building/IoT space. I went on to serve as the Chief Technology Officer at GE Aviation where I extended my mission to “flying buildings.” And now I’m here, at Panasonic, the perfect place to land to fulfill my mission. Each day, I am impressed by the breadth of its engineering talent and its enduring spirit of innovation and cooperation.
Panasonic Avionics is a great place to help aviation companies build more sustainable, stronger versions of themselves using the best of what technology has to offer. Such change often requires system thinking—an approach I’ve honed over the course of my professional and academic careers. I’m the proud owner of a collection of degrees including a bachelor’s degree in biology and chemistry, a master’s degree in computer science, an executive, technology-focused MBA from the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Master’s and Project Management Professional (PMP) industry certification from George Washington University.
What can I say? I love to learn—and I’m excited to continue my education by working with a great team that is focused on making this world a better place, today, and for future generations.
