Ernest co-founded ONUG with Nick Lippis after realizing that the user community needed to take control of their own destiny and expedite the network transformation. At the time he was VP of the Internetwork Engineering organization at Fidelity Investments and under his leadership Fidelity hosted the first ONUG in Boston in February 2013.
A 12-year veteran of Fidelity, Ernest was responsible for leading the team that engineered world class network, security, and application delivery services driving value to the customer beyond infrastructure management. Ernest also managed the Network and Voice service portfolio as well as Global Network Operations LAN/WAN teams and has held various technical and leadership roles.
Comprised of top enterprise technology leaders, the ONUG Board provides a collective voice to power today’s digital enterprises and set the direction for the initiatives that will best serve the interests of ONUG member companies.
Taken from an industry-wide pool of candidates, ONUG speakers represent the most well respected thought leaders, technologists and business innovators.
