Keeping up with the pace of change in the digital era is a challenge in the highly competitive financial services arena. This is where Margi steps in. She not only delivers large-scale IT programs for large property and casualty insurance carriers. She is adept at using agile and iterative practices to accelerate that transformation – and the business benefits. Each of her recent projects – for example, a claims system for a top-tier US carrier – led to multiple millions of dollars in savings by improving productivity and operational efficiency for both IT and business functions.
Margi has more than 20 years of experience leading complex IT projects, primarily for financial services institutions. She is adept at guiding teams ranging from 15 to nearly 100 onshore and offshore resources. She also has deep expertise in IT strategy, IT planning, software selection, management of complex vendor and third-party relationships, and maintenance releases.
Prior to joining West Monroe, she was an Associate Partner and executive delivery lead with IBM and a Senior Manager with EY. She holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Northern Illinois University and a master’s degree in software engineering from DePaul University.
She has competed in the Chicago Triathlon. She spends free time biking, playing with her puppy, connecting with family – including 50 first cousins and 8 nieces and nephews – and taking in Chicago’s restaurants and breathtaking skyline. But she always looks forward to visiting her boyfriend in Dublin, Ireland.
She was a charter member of an Advancing Women Executives committee focused on supporting the progression of women into leadership and partner positions.
