roy gatlingRoy Gatling was one of the pioneers that was part of the success story that we know as Dell Computer Corporation. Roy joined that little startup in Texas when it employed less than 50 people, and he experienced history making growth as it became a global Fortune 100 company with over $60 billion in revenue.
Roy has nearly 20 years of combined project management experience in hardware development, software development, IT and Mergers and Acquisitions. He has worked in an environment with absolutely no process in place and one with perhaps a bit too much process in place.
Based on this experience and his entrepreneurial roots, Roy recently launched his own project management consulting practice based in Austin, TX where he joins us today.
