former Board member
Institute of Management Consultants (IMC), NorCal Chapter
John and I recently worked together on a financial audit project for the NorCal Chapter of the Institute of Management Consultants (IMCUSA). John brought the auditing expertise to the table and identified the critical issues, interviewed the key people, made detailed recommendations and helped us create a practical, two-phase solution. He effectively presented our work and the recommendations to the Board; the Treasurer confirmed we were "spot on."
From the spring of 2005 through the fall of 2006, John Weathington served in a key leadership rol as the GSA (General Services Administration) data warehouse team lead.
In this capacity, John led his team in an effort aimed at translating complex business requirements (e.g., related to GSA’s Industry Funding Fee [IFF] calculation, Special Item Number [SIN] tracking, and repricing compliance requirements) into technical requirements that could be implemented in a new data warehouse solution.
I have worked with John on several projects at Sun involving the development and enhancement of a government data mart. John brings many key skills to the table: he is an excellent analyst, working closely and communicating well with the business owners to define specific requirements and translating them into a solution design, he has strong technical skills to drive the build of the solution, he brings high quality project management skills to the effort as well. I look forward to continuing to work with John in the future.
John worked for me at SGI [Silicon Graphics, Inc.] in Product Group Engineering as a lead reporting architect and developer. His leadership was paramount driving the team to deliver the reports required to run the 5 business units he supported. John has a great mix of business, technical and interpersonal skills. It was great working with John over those 3 years.
I highly recommend John as an IT consultant for data warehousing projects and other related IT ventures. He was very precise, proficient and comprehensive in determining the best solution to meet the needs of the business. John came into a situation where the project was inadequately meeting the specifications of the business and turned it around with a successful solution. He is one of the best IT consultants I ever had to work with. He has excellent candor and is easy to work with. His knowledge of database structure, data warehousing, code writing and business acumen made him a valuable asset to the team.
John is a tremendous asset to any functional team needing thorough detailed analysis, technical knowledge with an "easy to get along with" personality style. He's an efficient and effective addition to any project.
