✅ ROI – Illustrating Roger’s drive for results and digital transformation:
• At one company, he successfully eliminated an expensive and risky legacy processing platform by executing a meticulous core system migration to a package solution for ten separate underwriting offices. The company had previously tried to do the migration in a single step and failed, so Roger’s approach was to do each office separately starting with the simplest, and apply learnings from each implementation to the next.
• At another company, he drove the effort to achieve a single processing platform for a combined business by migrating and integrating acquired $100M portfolio into the acquiring company’s systems. This resulted in significant IT cost savings.
