About Zachary Kelly Envizium Consulting

I’m a creative thinker, a large-scale problem solver, and above all, a collaborative person who enjoys connecting and sharing ideas. I’ve made this website and blog to show the progress of my three book projects and put some of my knowledge and experience out into the wider business and IT community.

I bring a broad, critical thinking mindset from my Humanities background to the detailed, technical field of Enterprise Information Technology. I’m an English major with a master’s degree in philosophy who happened to spend the last twenty years neck deep in large-scale enterprise IT. I caught the “IT bug” doing some technical writing gigs for Lockheed Martin, AT&T, Wake Forest University Baptist Hospital, and others, and decided to become a programmer.

After slinging enterprise J2EE for AIG United Guaranty for a while, I had the good fortune to join the UG International Group to manage business and IT operations, where I supported opening new businesses and IT platforms in seventeen countries around the world. This led to a move to Hong Kong as Asia-Pacific Regional Operations Director, where I realized I’m an entrepreneur and launched a software development startup in rural Russia. It was the best experience of my life, but after the inevitable failure I have the following reminder burned inside my eyelids: DON’T START A COMPANY IN RURAL RUSSIA, DUMMY!

From there I spent the past ten years supporting Federal customers by leading major projects in IT governance and security, enterprise IT operations, datacenter modernization, software engineering, cloud migration, analytics, automation, ITIL adoption, agile adoption, and just about everything else. I’ve managed multiple large and small teams and made a specialty out of building teams that are closely aligned to business needs, promoting high efficiency and job satisfaction.

Outside of work, I play violin and piano, build cabinets, ride bikes, read science fiction, and enjoy beautiful Blacksburg, Virginia with my family. Come visit and bring your dog, we’ll have a beer on the deck!
