Hi, I am Russ Stalters. I’m the CEO and founder of Clear Path Solutions Inc. and the author of gettinginformationdone.com. I specialize in big data and information management strategy, vendor evaluations, change management programs, and content management strategy and implementation planning for large enterprises.
I am also a Senior Advisor at The Claro Group where I help clients mange information as an asset and realize the value of this critical asset while reducing risk.
From 2010-2015 I was the Director, Information & Data Management for BP located in Houston, Texas.
In that role I was responsible for the data management strategy for BP’s Gulf Coast Restoration Organization and served as the Chief Architect with design authority for all the applications and solutions we put in place to manage the data from the Deepwater Horizon Incident Response and subsequent environmental studies.
Prior to joining BP in 2007 I was Chief Technology Officer at Applied Information Sciences, Inc. (AIS) where I was responsible for assisting organizations to envision, design, and implement document, records, content, and business process management solutions that also require compliance with global content and records management standards. A recognized subject matter expert for SharePoint 2007 based solutions; I bring practical experience, thought leadership, and technical expertise into every solution.
I was also the president of TrueArc, a world-leading records management software firm, which was acquired by Documentum 2002. An innovator and patent holder, I helped design the patented product, AutoRecords, which automatically determines if a piece of content is a record and where it should be stored within the system.
A retired Navy CIO at the Naval Air Warfare Center, I managed a staff of 900+ employees supporting over 15,000 customers. I am also an NASD Registered Representative and hold a Master’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Florida.
This is my personal blog. It is focused on managing information and data at scale. In addition to sharing what I have learned about information and data management I want to help others leverage their influence. As a result, I write on personal development, leadership, productivity, platform, and publishing. On occasion, I write about something that doesn’t fit neatly into one of these categories.
