Paul started his career in quality assurance, sharpening his attention to detail, and progressed into project and program management roles that integrated technology with system-wide functions and processes. He also managed website and business intelligence software implementations using various development methodologies. In 2012, his program team was awarded Harvard’s Bright Ideas award for creating the most innovative career website for Veterans Affairs (VA).

With these experiences, Paul has a unique ability to deliver and translate technology to the people side of business in a way that is easily understood, conveyed in a timely fashion, and directly maps back to new behaviors, business processes, and organization goals.
