Company Profile
Stephen developed a fully integrated suite of products to form complete core business systems for the printing and trade association industries. These packages included accounting (G/L, A/P, A/R), purchasing, inventory, production planning, job costing, estimating, billing, forecasting, scheduling, membership, trade show management and customer relations management. Currently, Stephen focuses his skills on the big data, data warehousing and business analytics arenas.
Stephen’s ability to thoroughly understand and penetrate complex business issues, develop appropriate strategies to deal with them and execute plans efficiently has led to effective results sustainable over time. He combines strong analytical and problem solving skills with a unique ability to communicate across all levels of the organization -- from the boardroom to the shop floor.
