Propeller, a management consultancy for leading organizations in technology, retail, energy and utilities, healthcare, and the public sector, today announced that Kristen Harris has joined the firm as director of its technology transformation practice. Based out of Propeller’s Denver office, Harris will lead business development, mentorship and talent development, operations, and thought leadership for the practice.
Harris joins Propeller with over 20 years of experience leading large-scale technology transformation programs at some of the country’s most sophisticated tech companies. She previously served as the director of web data engineering at Sun Microsystems and as director of application development at Oracle. Most recently, Harris was vice president of service delivery at Zia Consulting, where she drove resources, scalability, and strategy on enterprise digital transformation and process re-architecture consulting engagements.
“As organizations continue to face challenges in large digital transformations, Kristen’s depth of experience in developing agile solutions and leading successful technology adoption will be invaluable to our clients,” said Sunil Kasturi, chief growth officer at Propeller. “As a collaborative and innovative leader, we’re pleased to welcome her to the team as we continue to grow our tech transformation practice.”
Harris has led hundreds of successful platform integrations, managed global software development teams, designed enterprise-level technology strategies, and advised C-suite executives on emerging technologies. She is skilled in cross-functional collaboration, IT program management, customer strategy, process and operations, and technology adoption and value realization.
“One of Propeller’s biggest differentiators is our ability to drive projects forward, and Kristen has the expertise and creative mindset that builds momentum and delivers impactful solutions for clients,” said Allison Torpey, Denver managing director at Propeller. “I’m thrilled to have Kristen on our team and to work alongside her in our Denver office.”
The demand for technology transformation projects has grown significantly as organizations continue to digitize their operations to reduce costs and increase efficiency, yet many struggle with these highly complex projects.
