Vice President, IT Client Program Leader – PayPal/eBay – Synchrony Categories: Career Timelines: Career

Hired to rebuild and expand the PayPal and eBay relationship and portfolio by leveraging my eCommerce, digital integration, SaaS, and payment gateway experience. I was successful in teaming up the Synchrony teams to restructure the program delivery pipeline and gained the trust of senior PayPal leadership which eventually lead to extending and increasing technical integration. As the program lead, I was able to manage five product releases in 18 months, a full year ahead of schedule. We were able to build up the existing portfolio by 33% to $4B, while supporting the $7.6B PayPal Credit portfolio RFP win, with a combined 12M active customers, and then landing a new direct eBay contract. I had directly managed two IT project managers, collaborated with business, credit, and marketing teams as well as managed over 60 resources across enterprise IT teams for baseline and CAPEX projects budgets up to $6M per year, coordinating with multiple Agile, QA, Cloud, enterprise platform, and networking teams.
