A Brief Introduction

Blog Post created by natbr01 Employee on Oct 10, 2014

Hi, all.  I figure that since I'm going to be more active in the community very soon that I should introduce myself.  My name is Brian Nathanson and I recently joined the CA Clarity PPM Product Management team after almost 10 years in CA Clarity PPM Presales serving the eastern United States.  In my life before CA, I was (and still am) a (PMP) card-carrying project manager charged with development projects for providing web-based interfaces to mainframe applications.  In my new role in Product Management, my primary responsibilities include customer-facing communications and interactions -- including management of the Ideas queue -- so you might see me pop up now and again in comments or other areas on the Community.  To provide some context, my new role works directly with Kurt (Steinle), Denice (Brown), and Bill (Yee) -- all of whom should be familiar names to long-time Clarity afficionados.


I will admit that I do not use much social media.  Even though I have worked in technology for almost 20 years, I have never posted on Facebook or other similar sites, so feel free to offer advice if you have any to share and/or remind me to use a particular feature because I may not even be aware it exists.  Also please don't hesitate to reach out and contact me if you have any questions at all.  Product management receives hundreds of messages a day, but I do my best to process all of them and return a response.  Note that I am currently working my way through the 1300+ Ideas in the queue and hope to have some semblance of clean up done there by the end of 2014 (CA World permitting).


Thanks and looking forward to working with all of you to advance CA Clarity PPM!
