Bryant studied computer engineering at the University of Tennessee, then completed a co-op at NASA. Though this literally had him shooting for the stars, Bryant moved to consulting. After awhile, he missed his hometown and craved a software development shop loaded with different technology than NASA’s. Once he was in Nashville, Bryant joined Asurion and never regretted supporting Earth-bound technology.
Bryant’s days are riddled with challenges, since he helps drive profits in the supply chain and finance businesses by expanding software and business functions. This goal requires lots of strategizing, analysis, and collaboration. Bryant builds high-functioning global teams by combining top talent with the right tools and approaches. His favorite project so far has been collaborating with Microsoft on an ERP platform to bring about even more capabilities.
“The best idea in the room always wins. If you can articulate it, it will happen.”
“In the ERP space, we have one of the largest in-house operations. That gives engineers an opportunity to create a ton of new intellectual property without having to work as a road warrior consultant.”
