I either trained to be a parent through my work as a BPM consultant, or my two sons trained me to be a better BPM professional. Either way, business process management is a lot like parenting. You have to keep your “optimal customer outcome” in mind and design your processes around those goals. The optimal outcome for my children is to be happy, healthy, and, hopefully, well-behaved in front of company. The optimal outcome for a business is similar; to grow, to adapt to change, to thrive. As a BPM expert, I can help you put your business on a path that will ensure a greater level of success and efficiency. I have a finance degree from Purdue, as well as the Project Management Professional (PMP) credential from the Project Management Institute (PMI), which is the most important industry-recognized certification for BPM professionals. I am the President of the Denver Chapter of the Association of Business Process Management Professionals (ABPMP), a group which is also available for LinkedIn members. Specialized training in the BPM field, combined with extensive experience in the telecommunications, financial services, and oil and gas sectors, has prepared me to work in a broad range of industries. There are commonalities across industries, and one of the aspects that I love most about my job is being able to go into a new field and apply effective solutions to unique challenges. As Managing Partner with SSB Consulting Group, I am committed to working with businesses to facilitate development, project management, and business process design.

Bryan Smith

The top doctors practice medicine; the top judges evaluate and rule on legal matters; the top accountants handle complex financial data. Why, then, shouldn’t consultants also be at the tops of their fields? Too often, clients get the high level methodology pitch when what they need is a skilled practitioner. SSB Consulting offers an alternative; experts who are also experts in communicating with clients. This has made Bryan Smith a natural addition to the team. His extensive background in finance and information systems, coupled with his ability to bridge the gap between business and IT, allows him to bring more than a sales pitch to the table. He is able to bring viable, manageable solutions to each client. A Denverite since birth, Bryan attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, earning an Undergraduate Degree in Information Systems and a Master’s Degree in Accounting in an intensive, accelerated program at the Leeds School of Business, graduating Summa Cum Laude. Bryan began an internship with a “Big Five” accounting firm, Arthur Andersen, while attending CU Boulder and landed a fulltime job there after completion of his degrees. While with Arthur Andersen, Bryan worked in auditing, and after adding his CPA license to his credentials, he moved into Technology Risk consulting. Specializing in revenue assurance, Bryan worked extensively with the telecommunications and cable industries, as well as handling audits for clients as diverse as Qwest Communications and the Colorado Rockies. Following his tenure at Arthur Andersen, Bryan took a position with Protiviti, working on internal audits, data analytics, system data, and revenue assurance.

Bobby Whitson

Bobby Whitson is a 15-year veteran of the Sports and Entertainment space. Whitson is well known as a leading expert in Data Warehousing, Database Marketing, CRM, Business Intelligence, and Email Marketing. In 2001, data and data related initiatives were few and far between in Sports; Whitson and the team at SmartDM changed that by helping teams, venues, leagues, and colleges understand the value of the data that they had in their disparate systems across their organizations. Whitson helped his clients aggregate their data into a centralized database platform from which they could gain much better insights into their fan base, create a deeper level of engagement with their fans, and market more efficiently and effectively. As SVP of Sales for SmartDM, Whitson managed the Sports and Entertainment vertical and saw it grow to over 100 clients in less than four years prior to SmartDM’s acquisition by Acxiom. After a couple of years working with a start-up in the routing and streaming video space, Whitson went to work with Veritix, a leader in the Primary and Secondary ticketing space. There, Whitson gained even greater insight into the daily ticketing related operations of teams, venues, and colleges. In 2012, Whitson teamed back up with long time friend and business partner, Jay Graves to join SSB. SSB is poised to empower the Sports and Entertainment industry with a never before available, true understanding of its platforms, its data, and most importantly, its fan and customers. With this unparalleled view into the reality of its fan base, teams, venues, and leagues will be able to make their data actionable, engage their fans more relevantly, accurately, and efficiently, and maximize the value of each and every fan relationship. If he is not on an airplane, at an arena, or with a team or league, Whitson can probably be found fishing on a lake, studying history on a battlefield, or spending some good outdoor time with his family. Whitson resides in the suburbs of Nashville in Franklin, TN with his wife Danielle and three daughters, Morgan, McLean, and Meredith. Whitson is a 1991 graduate of Furman University in Greenville, SC.
