To whom it may concern,
Scott is currently employed by DanoneWave.
DanoneWave is the nation's leading plant based beverage and organic milk brands producer and the fastest growing CPG company in North America.
The business has grown significantly over the last few years.
Under Scott's leadership the Infrastructure group has matured its capabilities and built a framework that supports that growth without a corresponding growth in SG&A.
Over the last year we achieved over 99.97% availability of our production SAP system and received an overall "Well Controlled" rating with no significant deficiencies in our SOX 404 audit.
The IT Infrastructure group has the highest engagement scores in IT and some of the highest in the whole company.
Since joining WWAV in September of 2005 I have lead the effort to consolidate multiple legacy business platforms into a coherent Information Technology infrastructure that is aligned with the needs of the business.
At WhiteWave Foods Co., I manage the IT Services Portfolio which includes; Computing Services, Data Center Services, Network Services, End User Services and IT Security & Controls.
Under my leadership the Information Technology group has implemented a strategy of sourcing non-core IT activities to best in class providers.
This strategy has resulted in the outsourcing of the hosting of our ERP system (SAP) with IBM and other functional areas like Supply Chain Management, Trade Promotion Management and Logistics Optimization to other best in class providers.
By following this strategy, we have improved availability, increased scalability and driven down costs by over $.
