Freightliner

Portland, OR
Manager, Corporate Standards
2000-2002
Accomplishments
  • Responsible for determining computer hardware configurations and identifying what software applications could be used by various user groups.
  • Implemented a Microsoft Systems Management Server solution for software and hardware inventory control and to push out applications to computers located throughout North America.
  • Responsible for protecting desktop computers from viruses.  The company had suffered greatly from Code Red, Namda and other malicious viruses.  I sourced a managed solution from various vendors and then deployed a solution that allowed me to view the protection level of 1100 desktop computers and push out updates to the protection databases without involvement from the users.  Since this solution has been in place, there has been no wide-spread outages due to viruses.
  • Based on my experience in many areas, I was asked to be a permanent member of the Technology Team.  This team met once every month to discuss trends in technology and make sure that Freightliner was well-positioned in terms of its technology direction.  I was the only contractor ever asked to be a permanent member of this team.
