Joseph Nainiger's Summary

A results-oriented program/project manager with extensive experience in supervising/leading multi-organizational and interdisciplinary teams to achieve focused, value-added results. Have worked in the government sector (including across several government agencies) and the private sector.

In my years of experience, many of them in management positions of complex engineering/technology development programs/projects, I have gained considerable expertise in applying sound organizational project management principles applicable to both the private/public sector. These include organizational strategic planning and operational planning, and the implementation of these principles to improve organizational efficiency and employee morale.

I am seeking program/project management level career/contracting opportunities in the private/public sector.
