For over 20 years, Alan has been an innovative leader within the Service Management discipline. Joining Fokker Aircraft (now part of Airbus) from General Electric in 1984, Alan led a team that pioneered Unattended Operations and Integrated Service Management based on IBM s ISMA. The result was recognized as one of the world s premier unattended data centers. During his tenure as General Manager at Pink Elephant, he was one of the founding brothers of what is now known as ITIL. As Founder and Managing Partner of Quint Wellington Redwood, he stood at the helm of many successful ITSM projects in Europe. Alan was one of the first examiners and trainers accredited by the ISEB and EXIN, and he has been involved in the development of many Service Management innovations over the years, including the concept of assessments like Pink Scan and QuintQuest, the ITIL Essentials now known as Foundations course, mobilization workshops, and many of the prominent reference models used today, such as IPW, AURRA, and the HP ITSM reference model. In 1997, Alan joined Hewlett-Packard where, first as Consulting Leader and later as the head of The Americas IT Operations, he sponsored and led the implementation of ITSM within the company. Later, as Senior Director for Strategic Engagements, Alan was responsible for strategic outsourcing in the Financial Services sector and pioneered the concept of transformational outsourcing based on Service Management principles. Since 2006, Alan has been President of ITpreneurs, the preferred source of IT best practice content, such as ITIL, ISO/IEC 20000, IT Governance, and COBIT for many of the top companies in the world. In this role, he is responsible for strategy and the development of products and concepts and customer advocacy to ITpreneurs clients and partners. Alan has assisted executives in many companies to develop and execute their Service Management strategy, including Chevron, Merrill Lynch, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, State Farm Insurance, KPN, AutoNation, Rabobank, Mahindra and Mahindra, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse, AKZO Nobel, Hewlett-Packard, Union Carbide, Eaton Corporation, and Lucent Technologies.
