Vice President of Membership: Mike Lovell
Mike started his professional life as a Systems Engineer for Honeywell at the Australian Dept. of Defence. In mid-career he left a senior line-management position as Commercial Systems Controller for a large Power Generating Company and took a leap-of-faith into the world of consulting. Over the next twenty years he built and led successful consulting practices for several international consulting companies leading projects for clients in public utilities, airlines, banking, postal services and the public sector.
In 2000, he relocated to the US to lead a team consulting to large corporations in the (then) fledgling field of website User Experience (UX). That project fell apart in the wake of the 9/11 attacks and a twist of life led him to found a publishing business in partnership with my late wife.
Following her death, he has returned to consulting and launched Be a Great Consultant providing training and coaching for mid-career professionals who are launching their own new consulting careers.
Throughout Mike’s career, he has always been active as a board member/office holder in professional associations as a way of “giving back.” He is also a member of ATD Greater Philadelphia Chapter (ATDPHL) where he is leading the formation of its Consulting Special Interest group (C-SIG).
Mike holds a Bachelors degree in Economics from Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra with majors in Economics, Mathematics and Computer Science.
