I'm Mike Quindazzi, Managing Director leading sales for US Digital Services and the Southwest area of PwC. I have 28 years invested in gathering industry experience & crafting my management consulting abilities; leading teams & global companies on strategy & transformational initiatives. I am responsible for growing a $1 billion multi-sector practice where I spend my waking hours developing our people & shaping innovative approaches to solving complex issues for our clients.

I find the greatest rewards in helping our clients grow & find competitive advantage; whether that entails global expansion, accelerating digital, improving customer experience, transforming organizations, implementing complex systems (HR/ERP). I believe in a leader’s intuition but also in working with management/boards to unlock the value of big data with predictive analytics to support big decisions.

I am fortunate to work with diverse & dynamic teams across a range of clients (startups to Fortune 500) & tech alliances (Amazon, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, Salesforce, Workday). I am intrigued by effective leadership, I applaud inclusion & collaboration; I try never to underestimate the power of culture and purpose when driving organizational change.

Whether an acquisition, minority stake investment, or IPO... I continue to stockpile a sense for the transactions that will create value. The days of buy low and sell high seem distant in the rear view mirror. I scope value through effective integration, unlocking synergies, and creating new structures; all made possible with the vast PwC network.

I am a keynote speaker on the global megatrends that are shaping future paths for business & society. I enjoy applying emerging tech trends to create opportunities and exceed client objectives .

Outside of family, other big passions for me include youth education & economic development. I am highly-driven to create a bright future for our people, clients & economy. Please join me on Twitter @MikeQuindazzi.
