            I was actually the CEO/COO and Founder of a Healthcare Informatics FyreStarrter Informatics. When I started the company, it was myself and 1 other associate. We were based in Atlanta and Las Vegas but had clients throughout the US (including Mission, Baycare, Childrens Hospitals, oh and Duke and Emory Universities. In the EU we consulted for such entities as Royal Philips, Siemens, and the British Government to name a few and Mindray Medical International in Shenzen, China.

            When I divested from the firm and my 2 partners took over and we had 15 full-time employees and 5 interns on staff. Oh and did I mention contract margins of 19-24% and profit of nearly $3 Million a year AFTER Operating expenses? Oh and while my 2 business partners were running the company rather well on the HCIT side, I managed to generate new business in the Telecommunications side and served as Director of Implementation for the new POS system being specifically developed for AT&Ts then $40 billion merger w/Cingular Wireless. It was a fun time, a hectic but electric project, and it challenged me, which I enjoy very much.

            Look the bottom-line is you need someone who is experienced at taking your organization to its next level AND can easily navigate with the fortune 1000 AND global companies as well. That would be me.
