Pfizer, Inc. (July,1996 to March, 2004)

Director, European Financial Shared Services (EFSS),
         Head of Program Office, Dublin, Ireland

I was heavily involved in the day-to-day planning, coordination and execution of operations on a large financial
project charged with consolidating the financial operations of 19 European countries into a central shared
services operation. My responsibilities were to assure that the project was not impeded by operational issues
and indeed that the plans and processes were enhanced by the efforts of my team. Plan tracking and
monitoring, including resource planning and business case development and tracking, facility selection, fit out
and management, executive and operational support and interface with the future steady state operation.

I worked with vendors management and suppliers to assure that Pfizer received value for cost.
Director, Clinical Research informatics (CRi),
            World-Wide Head Business Operations, and concurrently
            Site Head, New York

Following the merger with Warner-Lambert, I was heavily involved with bringing together the business
operations and financial processes of CRi. As part of this position I was involved in the Pfizer Global Research
and Development Informatics (PGRDi) 2002 budget development as well as the CRi budget development. I led
the Portfolio Management Council where we consolidated, eliminated or reworked 27 projects into 7, resulting in
a saving of approximately $26 million and a provided a major influence in the planning for PGRDi business
operations processes. At the same time I assumed leadership of the New York site. We consolidated the
workload such that the New York portion of the former CCRS is now a self-sustaining and locally managed
organization that continues to deliver applications and support. This was been accomplished while contending
with a high number of management transfers and terminations.
Director, Corporate Clinical and Regulatory Systems (CCRS),
            Operations and Business Support

During the first two years of my employment at Pfizer, CCRS was in the position of implementing global
applications for clinical trials patient and safety data with little or no budget constraints. After putting a technical
development structure in place and at the direction of corporate management we were told to "make CCRS a
corporate division". I led implementation of various business processes (“budget and spend tracking”, ”division
policies”, ”internal support services”, ”resources and capital equipment acquisition”). We placed a full circle,
divisional finance and administration function into production.
Director, Corporate Clinical and Regulatory Systems (CCRS),
            Applications Development

I joined Pfizer after working as a consultant and helping to define an organizational structure capable of
delivering software products needed by the user community. Responsible for all CCRS Applications developed
or acquired (Oracle Clinical, EventNet, AEM, CTM and ten others). Led a staff of approximately 100 employees
and consultants. Worked with multiple locations and line organizations. I was responsible for 1998 rollout of
both Oracle Clinical as well as the continued availability of all production applications (PfizerClin, CTM, AEM and
other peripheral applications).
