Hi, I'm Glynn, a modern business technology strategist with a track record of improving shareholder return.
The value I bring
I have a unique blend of business strategy and financial acumen coupled with a deep technology background and a natural leadership style. I use these skills to identify and drive business outcomes that improve shareholder return.
I have implemented significant transformational programs in more than 36 countries and in more than 15 companies.
I have an engaging character and communicate with a positive attitude, effectively liaising at all social and cultural levels, including within matrix environments.
I have a reputation for integrity, I build and maintain professional relationships, I have a growth mindset and a passion to make a difference for customers and shareholders.
Glynn led the SAP integration with Schneider Electric's ecommerce solution "MySE" which has now become our Global platform with over 50 Countries implemented and close to 2B Euros in Sales Orders. Glynn provided a very balanced approach to our solutions with the Technical strengths and leadership with a very hands on practical approach, and managed a cross functional off shore development team.
Glynn has unparalleled knowledge in SAP/enterprise applications complemented by business process acumen. Glynn builds solid relationships with his colleagues and is a pleasure to have in our team.
Glynn is a highly motivated and reliable, and leads naturally - never loosing sight of the strategic and governing objectives. It has been a pleasure working with him.
What impressed me about Glynn from the outset was his ability to calmly bring people together who all had their own interests and need to be heard. Glynn has a way about him that, without direct forcefulness, encourages people to listen and to be guided by him. Glynn leads by encouragement and seeking positive outcomes. He has remained cool in situations where many others were not and, as such, achieved clear "go forward" agreement on design, approach and business solutions. He is able to lead and does so easily with or without direct authority. Glynn is someone who people at all levels of the business listen to.
