Professional Profile of Michael Stevens of TransAmerica

After exhaustive searching, I have determined that publicly available information on Michael Stevens, Senior Director of Transamerica, is very limited. The only available source that provided any information of interest is his LinkedIn page.

From LinkedIn, we were able to determine that Michael Stevens graduated from Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Computer Information Systems in 1997. Educational information prior to college is not publicly available. After an unexplained hiatus, during which we can safely assume the recent college grad was job hunting, Michael was able to obtain the position of Software Engineer at Computer Task Group. He began in this capacity in March 1998 and left in November 1999 for a different position with a different company. He changed companies in 2003, 2008, 2009, 2014, and 2016. In 2016, he was hired as Senior Director for Transamerica and has remained there. Direct contact information for Michael Stevens is not provided through Transamerica's website, LinkedIn, social media or any other public resource.

Again, publicly available information on Michael Stevens, Senior Director of Transamerica, is very limited. Transamerica does not provide any information about him on their corporate website. Other than a LinkedIn page, I was unable to find any sort of social presence associated with him. Searches on Facebook and Twitter turned up nothing. This could mean that he chooses not to have a public persona, or that he has hired an image consulting firm to ensure that only information representing his professional life is publicly available. Therefore, the only publicly available, credible information concerning his educational and professional backgrounds we were able to find on LinkedIn has been used to answer this request.

Findings

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

Michael Stevens earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Information Science from Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania in 1997. Prior to enrolling at Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania, Michael Stevens was involved with CHS. There isn't any additional information about CHS provided on his LinkedIn page and the link connected to it is broken, so exactly while this is most likely some type of school, the exact type of educational organization it is and what Michael's involvement with it was is not publicly available.

OVERVIEW OF POSITIONS HELD DURING THE LAST TWO YEARS
During the past two years, Michael Stevens has worked for two different companies, Transamerica and HP Software, which is part of HP Autonomy. He has spent the majority of the last two years, one year and nine months to be precise, as Senior Director at Transamerica where his work has mostly involved the Marketing Operations group. Prior to taking this position with Transamerica, Michael worked as a Pre Sales Technical Consultant at HP Software where he functioned as a technical solutions consultant (presales engineer) for Customer Experience Management Software (CEM).

Current Position: Senior Director
July 2016 — Present (One year, nine months of the two-year period)

As Senior Director, Michael Stevens performs a series of functions and duties within the Marketing Operations group. He is responsible for analyzing all current technologies and solutions used within the Marketing Operations group. Using the information gained from the analysis, Michael identifies both existing gaps and deficiencies and looks for opportunities to increase automation and integration. He also functions as a "Subject Matter Expert" during the vendor selection and RFP process for Marketing Operations which requires his participation in the technology steering committee to give input that will help the Marketing Operations Group select the best of breed solutions. Finally, Michael oversees and leads the technical aspects of RFPs and the technical vetting process to ensure selected new technologies will easily integrate with currently used "in-house CRM, VoC and Web solutions."

HP SOFTWARE (HP AUTONOMY)
Pre Sales Technical Consultant

Michael spent two years, three months as a Pre Sales Technical Consultant for HP Software with the last three months occurring during the two-year period for which an overview has been requested. While at HP Software, he functioned as a "technical solutions consultant (presales engineer) providing pre and post-sales technical expertise, leadership, and support for Customer Experience Management Software" during which he was actively involved in sales cycles occurring at and with key accounts across the US. As part of his duties, Michael translated business needs into "functional requirement and live product demonstrations" that demonstrated how HP Software's solutions not only met but exceeded customer requirements and expectations. His management of "discovery, solution design, technical and architectural needs within the accounts including responding to RFI, RFP, RFQ, etc., custom Proof of Concepts and technical workshops" enabled and helped ensure the success of HP Software's Account Executives.

Contact information for him is not provided through Transamerica's website, so I have provided the company's contact page which includes this general contact number: 800-797-2643.

However, following information provided by e-mail finder Hunter.io, we can reasonably concluded that his corporate e-mail is most likely michael.stevens@transamerica.com

Connecting with Michael through LinkedIn is another possible means of communication. Finally, searching social media platforms Facebook and Twitter failed to result in accounts associated with Michael Stevens.
