Anthony Grandle - Chapter Vice President

Ultimately my goal is to always deliver business value through technology strategy. As an architect I focus my experience and problem solving skills toward helping customers architect the best solution possible by aligning their strategic business goals with technology. I have experience with waterfall as well as agile/lean implementations in the capacity of developer, project manager, architect, and manager.

Vance Collins - Chapter Board Member

I am a Sr .NET Developer with strong business and people skills. The reason I climb to the top of a "mountain" is so I can scramble down and start climbing the next one. I get stronger and faster with each summit. I enjoy the big picture of Enterprise Architecture, but never get tired of writing code and setting up systems that make the architecture work.
