I am an accomplished IT Executive and business enabler, most recently the Service Delivery Director with bottom-line responsibility for global key account service delivery and $140M direct P&L.
I have also been an independent consultant, guiding corporate vision and strategic direction for large-scale global deployment, project management, and service delivery initiatives.
Setting and clearly communicating expectations, then consistently over-delivering is vital to my professional success – aligning aggressive targets with actionable plans, following through to successful, tangible completion.
Vaughn believes in a collaborative team approach to solving problems. After introducing and implementing the concept of the “peer advisory council” at CarMax, Vaughn logically started his own version called “The Alternative Board” in Huntington Beach. He has now teamed with “Allen Training Centers” delivering real-world management training to all levels of a company’s management members. Knowing that real change starts at the top, his ATC “AlignUp® Program” allows the executive team of any company to finally remove their silos and become an aligned force that will achieve their company’s goals and vision.
