Senior Management, Technical Support and Customer Services

Professional Summary

Greetings,

I have delivered technical services and solutions to customers and partners throughout my career. My interests, experience and skills apply to technical/customer support, deployment engineering, software release and professional services.

I am passionate about solving technical problems and employing effective managerial practices. I've learned the importance of project management & reporting skills in support of our efforts to exceed goals and expectations. I have the ability to simplify complexity allowing me the opportunity to continuously improve products, procedures and services. This is what I enjoy doing.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering and an MBA. With these I have built a solid foundation for my practical experience. I've been involved in 3 start-ups. Two of these start-ups went through successful IPO’s during my tenure. Here is what I've learned:

1) Hire only the best
2) Build an agile organization
3) Preserve capital

I have worked with customers at all levels and in the most challenging situations. Understanding their business and providing pathways to their success, lays the groundwork for ours.

My best regards,
Scott Bovenizer
