He’s also a dedicated collaborator and lifelong relationship builder, expertise he strengthened as an IT management consultant with Andersen Consulting, now Accenture.

Ryan LaSalle, Managing Director – North America Lead, Accenture Security, leads the North America practice for Accenture Security. He is responsible for nurturing the talented teams that bring transformative solutions to better defend and protect Accenture’s clients. He is also accountable for delivering on Accenture’s commitment to clients for high-quality, innovative delivery to address their most critical issues.

During more than 20 years with Accenture, LaSalle has led client engagements across commercial, non-profit and the public sector by integrating emerging technologies into advanced solutions to drive agility and meet business needs. His recent engagements with Media, Energy and Banking clients help leverage new models and practices across the unique business challenges of each industry. He consults with customers on focused solutions that bring together analytics, knowledge discovery, and cyber-security to improve threat assessment and response methodologies.

LaSalle is a Ponemon Institute Fellow, active with the Greater Washington Board of Trade and sits on security innovation advisory councils for clients across multiple industries. He holds patents in human resource management, knowledge discovery and establishing trust between entities online. He is a frequent speaker at international security conferences and has authored numerous articles on cyber security. LaSalle earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Princeton University.

Robert Wallace, President, CEO and Founder of BITHGROUP Technologies, Inc., Bithenergy, Inc., and EntreTeach Learning Systems, LLC, is an internationally-known entrepreneur, author, speaker and consultant. With more than 30 years of business experience spanning engineering, energy and IT, Wallace blends decades of research with practical real-world advice to educate and inspire entrepreneurs and executives worldwide. His rags-to-riches story began in the Baltimore projects amidst poverty and racial segregation, before overcoming obstacles to establish three companies: BITHGROUP Technologies, Bithenergy, and through RobertWallace.com, EntreTeach.

During more than 20 years with Accenture, LaSalle has led client engagements across commercial, non-profit and the public sector by integrating emerging technologies into advanced solutions to drive agility and meet business needs. His recent engagements with Media, Energy and Banking clients help leverage new models and practices across the unique business challenges of each industry. He consults with customers on focused solutions that bring together analytics, knowledge discovery, and cyber-security to improve threat assessment and response methodologies.

LaSalle is a Ponemon Institute Fellow, active with the Greater Washington Board of Trade and sits on security innovation advisory councils for clients across multiple industries. He holds patents in human resource management, knowledge discovery and establishing trust between entities online. He is a frequent speaker at international security conferences and has authored numerous articles on cyber security. LaSalle earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Princeton University.

She will discuss her rise in Corporate America. Furthermore, she will share the career experiences of 20 female executives in five continents whom she has been interviewing for her forthcoming book “Unintentional Choices.”

Prior to becoming a CEO, Angagaw was Senior Vice President, Global Head of Sales and Business Development for Sodexo, responsible for directing business development for the global Healthcare segment operating in 35 countries. Previously, she served as Sodexo’s Group Vice President, Global Transformation.

Angagaw’s experience spans operations, strategy and business development. She served as Senior Vice President of Market Development for Sodexo’s Corporate and Leisure market segments for the U.S. In this role, she was charged with leading and implementing the overall business development strategy, as well as creating and implementing new offers.

Ryan LaSalle, Managing Director – North America Lead, Accenture Security, leads the North America practice for Accenture Security. He is responsible for nurturing the talented teams that bring transformative solutions to better defend and protect Accenture’s clients. He is also accountable for delivering on Accenture’s commitment to clients for high-quality, innovative delivery to address their most critical issues.

During more than 20 years with Accenture, LaSalle has led client engagements across commercial, non-profit and the public sector by integrating emerging technologies into advanced solutions to drive agility and meet business needs. His recent engagements with Media, Energy and Banking clients help leverage new models and practices across the unique business challenges of each industry. He consults with customers on focused solutions that bring together analytics, knowledge discovery, and cyber-security to improve threat assessment and response methodologies.

LaSalle is a Ponemon Institute Fellow, active with the Greater Washington Board of Trade and sits on security innovation advisory councils for clients across multiple industries. He holds patents in human resource management, knowledge discovery and establishing trust between entities online. He is a frequent speaker at international security conferences and has authored numerous articles on cyber security. LaSalle earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Princeton University.

Prior to becoming a CEO, Angagaw was Senior Vice President, Global Head of Sales and Business Development for Sodexo, responsible for directing business development for the global Healthcare segment operating in 35 countries.

Jun 26 @ 7:30 am – 9:30 am

Join the Greater Baltimore Committee for a conversation about cybersecurity in the workplace and what you need to know to help keep your company’s data safe.

Hear from:

Dave Hartman, President and Co-Founder of Hartman Executive Advisors, founded Hartman with his wife Marie to transform executives’ long held, traditional views of IT and demonstrate how a technology-aligned business strategy is critical for long-term success. This pioneering approach still catches some by surprise; he continues to hear from executives that conversations with Hartman are often the first business discussions they’ve had that include technology.

During his eight years as a Naval Flight Officer, and in his early career in IT supporting the healthcare, commercial, retail, government and nonprofit industries, Hartman developed strong leadership, analysis and execution skills. He’s also a dedicated collaborator and lifelong relationship builder, expertise he strengthened as an IT management consultant with Andersen Consulting, now Accenture. Hartman earned a bachelor’s degree in urban studies from College of the Holy Cross and a MBA from Embry Riddle University.

Ryan LaSalle, Managing Director – North America Lead, Accenture Security, leads the North America practice for Accenture Security. He is responsible for nurturing the talented teams that bring transformative solutions to better defend and protect Accenture’s clients. He is also accountable for delivering on Accenture’s commitment to clients for high-quality, innovative delivery to address their most critical issues.

During more than 20 years with Accenture, LaSalle has led client engagements across commercial, non-profit and the public sector by integrating emerging technologies into advanced solutions to drive agility and meet business needs. His recent engagements with Media, Energy and Banking clients help leverage new models and practices across the unique business challenges of each industry. He consults with customers on focused solutions that bring together analytics, knowledge discovery, and cyber-security to improve threat assessment and response methodologies.

LaSalle is a Ponemon Institute Fellow, active with the Greater Washington Board of Trade and sits on security innovation advisory councils for clients across multiple industries. He holds patents in human resource management, knowledge discovery and establishing trust between entities online. He is a frequent speaker at international security conferences and has authored numerous articles on cyber security. LaSalle earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Princeton University.

Robert Wallace, President, CEO and Founder of BITHGROUP Technologies, Inc., Bithenergy, Inc., and EntreTeach Learning Systems, LLC, is an internationally-known entrepreneur, author, speaker and consultant. With more than 30 years of business experience spanning engineering, energy and IT, Wallace blends decades of research with practical real-world advice to educate and inspire entrepreneurs and executives worldwide. His rags-to-riches story began in the Baltimore projects amidst poverty and racial segregation, before overcoming obstacles to establish three companies: BITHGROUP Technologies, Bithenergy, and through RobertWallace.com, EntreTeach.

Prior to becoming a CEO, Angagaw was Senior Vice President, Global Head of Sales and Business Development for Sodexo, responsible for directing business development for the global Healthcare segment operating in 35 countries. Previously, she served as Sodexo’s Group Vice President, Global Transformation. In this role, Angagaw led the transformational design as well as coordination of the change management effort globally as the company underwent a transformation from an 80-country to a truly global operational organization.

Angagaw’s experience spans operations, strategy and business development. She served as Senior Vice President of Market Development for Sodexo’s Corporate and Leisure market segments for the U.S. In this role, she was charged with leading and implementing the overall business development strategy, as well as creating and implementing new offers.

She is an active member of the Executive Leadership Council (ELC) and is part of its Community Impact Initiative committee and Membership committee. She is also served as a member of Sodexo’s African American Leadership Forum as well as the company’s Women’s Network Group.

He’s also a dedicated collaborator and lifelong relationship builder, expertise he strengthened as an IT management consultant with Andersen Consulting, now Accenture.

Ryan LaSalle, Managing Director – North America Lead, Accenture Security, leads the North America practice for Accenture Security. He is responsible for nurturing the talented teams that bring transformative solutions to better defend and protect Accenture’s clients. He is also accountable for delivering on Accenture’s commitment to clients for high-quality, innovative delivery to address their most critical issues.

During more than 20 years with Accenture, LaSalle has led client engagements across commercial, non-profit and the public sector by integrating emerging technologies into advanced solutions to drive agility and meet business needs. His recent engagements with Media, Energy and Banking clients help leverage new models and practices across the unique business challenges of each industry. He consults with customers on focused solutions that bring together analytics, knowledge discovery, and cyber-security to improve threat assessment and response methodologies.

LaSalle is a Ponemon Institute Fellow, active with the Greater Washington Board of Trade and sits on security innovation advisory councils for clients across multiple industries. He holds patents in human resource management, knowledge discovery and establishing trust between entities online. He is a frequent speaker at international security conferences and has authored numerous articles on cyber security. LaSalle earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Princeton University.

Robert Wallace, President, CEO and Founder of BITHGROUP Technologies, Inc., Bithenergy, Inc., and EntreTeach Learning Systems, LLC, is an internationally-known entrepreneur, author, speaker and consultant. With more than 30 years of business experience spanning engineering, energy and IT, Wallace blends decades of research with practical real-world advice to educate and inspire entrepreneurs and executives worldwide. His rags-to-riches story began in the Baltimore projects amidst poverty and racial segregation, before overcoming obstacles to establish three companies: BITHGROUP Technologies, Bithenergy, and through RobertWallace.com, EntreTeach.

Speaker Series with Chris McDonell: Effective Networking & Business Development – November 2019 @ Greater Baltimore Committee
Nov 20 @ 7:30 am – 9:00 am

Chris McDonell

Join the Greater Baltimore Committee for the final installment of a four-part speaker series with Chris McDonell, President and CEO of McDonell Consulting Group/Sandler Training.

The program will explore a self-discovery process to assess whether or not you are aligning your current business development/networking strategy to what the environment calls for and why it’s important.

When: Wednesday, November 20, 2019; 7:30 a.m. registration, 8-9 a.m. program
