What would you contribute to itSMF USA? Through my 35 years in IT Service Management, working in private and public sector in several different countries, I always tried to instill the very ideas and attitudes that itSMF is promoting: properly designed and organized IT Service Management that ensures quality and benefits organization, customers, partners, suppliers, and other stakeholders. I have experience implementing ITIL aligned processes, ISO/IEC 20000 and ISO 9000 standards, developing and implementing comprehensive training and awareness programs. My track record includes volunteering as board member, conference organizing committee and advisory board member, speaker, trainer, workshop presenter of different organizations, conferences and conventions. I want to use all of this experience to the benefit of all itSMF USA members and to contribute to further advancement of itSMF and its ideals.
