Al Zorner spent a majority of his professional career with the chemical giant, Union Carbide. He left in 1994 to become the Director of Technology/CIO at Foxwoods Resort Casino that evolved into the largest casino in the Western world and is publicly-acknowledged as technically-innovative. He then elected to experiment in the services delivery sector and assumed the role of Technical Executive/CTO for the IBM Interactive Media Group that became the incubator and the premier e-business center within the IBM umbrella. In early 2000, Al joined Enterpulse, an eCommerce services firm, to experience the entrepreneurial environment as the Vice-President/CTO with sole responsibility for the delivery of B2B Commerce, Supply Chain and Content Management solutions.
Al was one of twelve key executives responsible for opening the Foxwoods Resort Casino within nine months from groundbreaking. Reporting to the CEO, he envisioned and delivered a leading edge technology platform including integrated systems, internet-ready applications and sound strategies to accept seven additional phases of construction and, over 100,000 guests per diem while, maintaining sub-second response time for the player.
In his twenty-five year career with Union Carbide, Al played a key role in the design, development and operation of the nationwide computer-based order entry and processing system for the logistical network of six regional offices, forty-five manufacturing sites and over 2000 vehicles. The state-of-the-art Decision Support Center became the focal point for long-term marketing strategies, tactical distribution enhancements and daily operations analysis. He also served as the divisional liaison to the federal Department of Transportation in the interpretation of regulations. Following a favorable FTC ruling, Union Carbide purchased over forty privately-owned distributors and elected to consolidate their operations. Al and his team of five experts were asked to apply the "best practice" methodology to each local operating discipline and management information system.
Al is a seasoned professional with experience in the various methodologies of management science as well as the application of software solutions to provide a competitive edge and/or operational efficiencies.
