Tampa, FL (PRWEB) December 3, 2006
David M. Kane, 35, has joined USC Consulting Group (USCCG) as the firm's technology practice leader. He was most recently with AAJ Technologies, a software and consulting services provider based in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where he was vice president, business development.
Earlier Mr. Kane was with Microsoft Corporation, where he rose to solution specialist for the company's Microsoft Office Enterprise Project Management (EPM) team. During his tenure there he successfully ran over 50 EPM engagements, presented over 200 technical sales seminars and was a frequent keynote speaker at industry conferences and trade shows. Prior to Microsoft he was a sales consultant with Oracle Corporation.
Mr. Kane began his career with American Packaging Corporation in Rochester, New York, as a manufacturing analyst. Early in his career, he worked with several other Rochester firms, including Bausch & Lomb, Xerox Corporation and Johnson & Johnson. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in interdisciplinary engineering and management from Clarkson University in 1994.
"Mr. Kane's extensive experience leading the EPM solution sales and deployment process for Microsoft makes him the ideal person to head our technology practice," said Jim Ostrosky, USCCG president, "since most of the enabling technology we use to achieve and sustain operational and financial improvements for our clients rests on Microsoft platforms."
When asked where he felt he could add the most value to the consulting firm's clients, Mr. Kane responded, "Many Fortune 1000 companies are disappointed that they have not realized the value they expected out of their technology investments. I see my role as helping USCCG's clients and prospects avoid that pitfall by offering greater insight, more considered options, and better execution on the front end, or, if it's too late, remediation via enabling technologies on the back end."

The firm excels at business performance improvement and offers an array of services that include Six Sigma, Lean transformation, supply chain optimization, process optimization, project management, value stream mapping, patient flow management, performance based logistics, training and facilitation, blended learning solutions, and modeling and simulation.
