Mr. Robert W. Pautke

Mr. Robert W. Pautke is Executive Vice President and is based in Cincinnati, Ohio.  Bob is an expert at defining and implementing data supplier management programs.  Most organizations acquire critical data from external sources, so supplier management is integral to their data quality programs.

Bob has almost two decades of experience in data management, process management and re-engineering.  Prior to joining Navesink, Bob led AT&T's first data quality projects, including highly successful efforts with data suppliers.  He spent two years with Dr. Redman at the AT&T Bell Laboratories Data Quality Lab.  Bob has consulted with firms in the United States, Europe and the Pacific Rim, helping them gain business value from improvements in data quality.  Bob is published and holds a patent.  He joined Navesink in 1998.

Mr. Dennis E. Parton

Mr. Dennis E. Parton, Navesink senior consultant, has contributed to many of the major advances in quality for the past 30 years.  Most recently, his work has focused on applying process management to service and information-rich processes.  Because data cross organizational boundaries in the blink of an eye, managing across functions is an essential component to an advanced data quality program.

Prior to joining Navesink, Dennis led an internal consulting practice within AT&T and was quality director for one of its business units.  Dennis was among the first to recognize that the techniques he used so effectively to improve quality on the factory floor would also improve service quality.  He helped pioneer the development of what is now called "process management."  Dennis continues to help his clients reduce cycle time, improve service levels and enhance business performance. 

Dennis has a master's degree in operations research from the University of Pennsylvania.
