When I stared my career over 25 years ago, I never imagined that my dedicated efforts in business continuity and resiliency would have such an impact. I first entered the industry as a Director of Business Continuity for AT&T establishing the first business continuity and disaster recovery program for their core network systems in the United States and expanded the program to their international accounts. The LSH Group, which I founded in 2006, has brought the significance of business continuity and resiliency to my customers, vendors, and academia through numerous publications, presentations, contracts and networking initiatives."
