James Turvey, Director of Program Management, Key Accounts, SUNY Polytechnic Institute

Specialites:    Program Management

Mentoring:  

Why I want to be a mentor:
I have many years of experience as a program manager, and I think I can help others to direct their energies to become more effective program managers.

Personal Statement:
I am married and have three grown children ages 24-29. I am an avid sailor, with a boat that I keep on Lake Champlain.

Philosophy:
I have been a mentor at Global Foundaries and IBM. I also developed a class for Program Management and a curriculum for establishing an internal training and certification program at GF.

Commitment to Diversity:
I was a people manager at GF and IBM. I actively recruited and hired women and minorities in those roles. In all of my projects I have worked equally well with people from all backgrounds, and have encouraged input from those who may have been culturally averse to speaking up in group settings.
