Michael Meyer

Michael Meyer

I can be an eccentric person from time with time with interesting beliefs and philosophies in life and in business. Feel free to sit with me as we ask ourselves great questions. A creative at heart and a desire to equip all. Generally I'm a bit of a technology all-rounder often working in the role of Virtual CTO with varying organisations. I get to work with great teams, one of which is Align Technology, with a pioneering spirit and new ideas they are pushing boundaries and preconceptions realising that leadership and culture through technology work hand in hand to develop great businesses. Businesses flourish through improved relationships, process efficiency, out of the box cultures, 3rd party relationship management and of course resulting unrealised profitability to name a few. Ask me sometime what is a TLCP - Technology Leadership and Culture Provider, I think this in many encapsulates what Align Technology is all about. My creative heart helps deriving interesting solutions to achieve goals at hand. Capable to handle a myriad of tasks. Service management, pre-sales, technical services and IT management, project management, leadership roles and so on. Life is a wonderful journey, perhaps we'll share a common path some day.
