IT INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGER

 

 

Goal

 

Having worked 15 years as an enterprise IT specialist, currently managing the IT infrastructure of a 400-users company, I look forward to leveraging my experience: IT Manager or Infrastructure Manager, I implement, with my team, the innovative and ambitious projects of the company.

I am looking for a humanly sized structure, leaving room for initiatives and responsibility, encouraging results. Dynamic, open, this structure favours communication and meritocracy.

Professional experience

From 1996

McKinsey & Company, Inc. (consulting)

IT Infrastructure manager

Supporting 300 high-level consultants, the IT Department’s values are: service quality, availability, proactivity.

With the help of two engineers, in line with the Firm’s IT Department, I am responsible for the availability and evolution of the Paris Office IT Infrastructure (local and metropolitan area network, network services, application, file and print servers, data backups, cabling, telecommunications.)

My responsibilities:

ü  budget definition and enforcement (3,5 M€)

ü  IT Dept. members’ evaluations, definition of objectives

ü  negotiation of service & telecom contracts (20% savings on telecommunications in 2002)

ü  hiring of new collaborators

ü  technology watch


Recent missions:

ü  user helpdesk organisation (tracking database, outsourcing)

ü  LAN moved from concentrated to switched (average response time of networked applications divided by two, increased security)

ü  VPN services to users, allowing remote working conditions comparable to working in the office

ü  hardware maintenance contract negotiation (4 hours back to working condition, cost reduction, penalties, performance indicators)

ü  implementation of fax and SMS servers (time to fax divided by five)

ü  complete 24x7 infrastructure monitoring and alerts, allowing capacity planning and immediate reaction in case of a problem

ü  PalmPilot-to-Notes remote synchronisation, allowing real-time agenda sharing between assistant and on-the-move consultants

ü  complete infrastructure deployment in a new building (cabling, server room, telecom links, power supply, servers...)

ü  intranet services deployment

1990-1996

MIND (Recruitment consulting)

Project manager

Assisted by a team of developers, I am in charge of developing the software environment of the company: this software handles the complete management of a 400,000-persons database, from sending the information-gathering form to pre-selecting candidates.

The heart of the system, the “Sélecteur”, enables the user to pre-select candidates using several filters, among a database of 400,000, in a matter of seconds. This pre-selection tool gave our consultants an edge in solving our clients’ requests in the shortest possible time.

1990

Bouygues (Construction)

Senior IT Specialist

I am the interface between the IT Department headquarters, in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, and the users based at the Clamart location.

After having audited the IT situation in Clamart, I implemented pragmatic solutions meeting both the users’ needs and the policies of the IT Department: powerful workstations for AutoCAD users, printing solutions in line with activities, document classification system.
