Speaker: Dave Uhler - Slalom Consulting, National Director of Research and Development
As the solutions director for Slalom Consulting, headquartered in Seattle, Dave runs the company’s research-and-development organization on a national level. In this role, he brings a decade of technical and management experience to clients and their mobile projects. In 2009, he built the company’s mobile practice from scratch, a unit that after just one year generated $5 million in revenue for Slalom. The goal of this group is to make business information accessible wherever it resides – in the cloud or on premise. Dave’s group creates unique iPhone apps to solve specific problems for clients, but also, more broadly, the group combines technical and management expertise to create mobile solutions that drive business results. The mobile component was just one of five groups Dave has launched within the company, and all of them have gone on to become nationwide initiatives for Slalom.
Prior to joining Slalom Consulting in 2003, Dave worked at AT&T Wireless where he worked in the strategic planning department as a billing technical lead. He worked for Anderson Consulting prior to AT&T Wireless. Dave got his start in the wireless industry after graduating from Pacific Lutheran University, where he studied biology, chemistry and Latin.
Dave has instituted a new type of thinking at Slalom and within the technology consulting profession. He is remarkably adept at developing an innovation and seeing it all the way through to results, and he has been widely recognized for his ingenuity. He was the instrumental player behind Slalom earning the Mobility Systems Integrator of the Year award from CRN, an organization that publishes news, analysis and perspective relating to the technology industry. Similarly, Slalom’s Group Health mobile app was named the Mobile App of the Year for 2011 by TechFlash, the technology news site of the Puget Sound Business Journal, largely because of Dave’s technology prowess. Over the years,Dave also has earned the AT&T Wireless Spirit of Excellence award (three times), membership in the AT&T Circle of Excellence, and Slalom’s Top Gun honors.
Dave is a magna cum laude graduate of Pacific Lutheran University, and his focus on the eclectic roots of innovation is reflected in his studies. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology with a research emphasis and minored in both chemistry and Latin.
