  • Build, develop, and grow any business relationships vital to the project's success.
  • Conduct project postmortems and craft a recommendation report to identify successful and unsuccessful project elements.
  • Ability to lead/direct emergency support calls due to requirements of the contract that call for after-hour backing in the event of an emergency (24X7X365)
