Daryle Niedermayer

Hi, I'm Daryle. Unlike many Information Technology professionals who focus on a specific technology or sector, my experience is wide and varied. I believe the richness of my background and my diversity gives me great strength in relating to people from different perspectives, solving complex problems without simple linear solutions, and an ability to analyze a situation with a view to finding an optimal approach to solving the problem.


I have a wealth of experience managing systems and projects within the Information Technology industry. I have worked as a consultant for some very large clients. Projects included: converting over $6B in pension funds including financial history, disaster recovery enablement projects for large financial services firms (credit card acquirers and capital market firms with assets in excess of $1 Trillion). I have international experience, having taught Information Technology to Arabic and Asian students in the Persian Gulf. Presently, I am an instructor in Information Technology in Canada. Part of my teaching load involves supervising and managing student teams as they work to solve actual problems and develop robust, effective solutions for real-life clients. I would like to combine my extensive IT and Project Management background with my international and cross-cultural work to help clients in international project management.
