Implementation Lead

Did this work during my tenure at WE / MFI. My direct responsibilities for large client implementation ended in late 2006 as more team members came on board. I then served in an advisory capacity to those doing the direct work.

Our organization took on two extraordinary cases during this period of time, and I served as internal tech lead for co-ordinating the data import into the system, and the consolidation of this data from all the various sources.

Managed a small team during these large client acquisitions to ensure data quality, as well as accurate data translation and consolidation from multiple source systems.
