Chris is responsible for operations and data analytics, financial systems development and profitability reporting. As a key member of each project team, he works closely with the profitability consultants to develop the data extraction tools, analytical models and reports essential to every project. Whether Chris is helping with a profitability project, compensation system revamp or merger or lateral valuation, his finance and tech skills are invaluable.
He brings over 30 years of large-scale technology and business systems expertise to his role at Concata. Over the course of his career, he has worked on a wide range of finance-related projects, including billing, collections, time entry, health and hygiene reporting, business intelligence, budget reporting, and compensations systems.
In his 24 years of law firm experience, he has developed unique expertise in complicated systems integrations following acquisitions by other firms. He has held responsibility for post-acquisition integration of the technical and financial systems of twelve different law firms into their respective parent firms. This required extensive project and change management skills. As project lead, he built Lean and Six Sigma philosophies and practices into the cultural fabric of the firm.
Chris began his career as a programmer/analyst and quickly advanced to Director of Technical Services. At his next company, he started out as Director of Technical Operations and was then promoted to Chief Operating Officer. His leap to the legal world happened when he took a job at Bingham McCutchen, since acquired by Morgan Lewis, as Director of Business Systems. It was here that he gained extensive experience in designing, developing and rolling out financial, billing, budgeting, scheduling, accounting and attorney dashboards systems worldwide.
