About Glenn Orenstein
Summary of qualifications

I consider myself, first and foremost, a consultant. My role is to advise my clients and provide them with solutions. I am particularly strong at devising practical, cost-effective solutions to end-user problems. I am able to draw on broad business experience as well as through technical knowledge of hardware, software and development tools. I am able to understand my clients’ needs in their terms, and to translate them into solutions in technical terms.

I have over twenty years experience in the management of information technology. My experience includes the management of traditional computing facilities, advanced technology, applications programming and computer-aided design/engineering. I have had full management responsibility for staffs as large as one hundred full-time people.

My company, Glenn Orenstein Consulting, Inc., has been serving businesses like your since the beginning of 2000.

My ability to manage information technology is based on my background and experience as a practicing engineer. I have advanced degrees in structural engineering, and am registered in four states. As a result, I am in an unusual position of being able to act as a bridge between the business and technical needs and the technical and administrative side of information technology.
