Andrew Hertenstein
My technical background has paralleled the many paradigm shifts of the last decade, and I have taken an active role in the new direction changes that occurred. As critical as these traits are to your consideration, this letter is intended to address some of the other screening criteria you may use in evaluating candidates: ability to envision new solutions, new systems, or organizations, accomplish goals; communicate and lead.

Inventiveness is a key ingredient to gain a competitive advantage for a technology rich company. I have consistently demonstrated the ability to apply existing technologies to solve difficult problems, evaluate what is needed by the client, what are new technologies available to improve existing processes and improve technology efficiency, always with the consideration of reducing total cost of ownership. Always ensuring customers maximize their investments.
