I am very pleased to announce the addition of the newest member of our team, portal industry veteran and consultant extraordinaire, Howie Bagley.
Howie will be continuing his distinguished career in the world of enterprise portal consulting by taking over the West Region as Vice President of Sales and Service. Howie has over 13 years of professional IT project management and consulting experience spanning multiple industry verticals and horizontal products but has spent the past 6+ years focusing on enterprise portals.
Prior to joining bdg on Monday, Howie served as a Manager for Deliotte Consulting in San Francisco, where he worked on various Plumtree proposals and projects. Before that, he spent a year as a Solution Architect at CIBER, leading deployments at several Plumtree customer sites including The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), The City of Eugene and San Francisco Municipal Railway (MUNI).
Howie also spent more than three years working for Plumtree’s PSO, where he created over 30 Plumtree demo sites, including the ones that won over Starbucks, Boeing and Pfizer. He also led Plumtree implementations at Guess Jeans, Chevron, Sequoia and Johnson & Johnson. At several of his implementations, he also managed the complete design strategy for their portal deployments. When not working with customers, he taught training courses in Portal Strategy, Portal Administration, Portlet Development with the EDK and UI Customization and developed a CSS layer that was integrated into Plumtree to help ease customization of the UI.
Prior to his PSO career at Plumtree, Howie built a portal from scratch using Microsoft technologies for the US Navy while a consultant for Pricewaterhouse Coopers.
Howie is fluent in Java and .NET and an expert in all versions of all the Plumtree products. He knows both the Microsoft (Windows, SQL Server, IIS) and Java (Solaris/Linux, Oracle, Tomcat/Weblogic/Websphere/Aapche) portal stacks and can provide expert analysis of any portal deployment from a strategic or a technical perspective. He also has working knowledge of SAP, Documentum, Oracle Financials, PeopleSoft, Interwoven, Siebel, Lotus Notes and Lexis-Nexus.
Howie earned his BA in Political Science from the University of Utah and his MA in Advertising from Syracuse.
I speak for all of us when I say that I cannot even begin to express how excited I am to bring someone of such caliber and with this level of experience and track record on to our already talented and dynamic group.
Please join me in welcoming Howie Bagley to the bdg team!
