 president and managing partner of AT&T Solutions and, in 1995, a founding
 member of their leadership team.  AT&T Solutions grew from $100 million to
 more than $1 billion in revenue during his tenure there.  Before that, he was
 president and CEO of BDM Technologies, increasing revenues ninefold and

 was acquired by TRW in 1997.  His career also includes partnership stints at
 McKinsey & Co. and Andersen Consulting.  He earned his bachelor's degree and
