Mike Alessio

As one of our original business analysts, Mike knows the ins-and-outs of IFS implementation – and he has been a key adviser for many of the RutterKey clients he has worked with over the last 10 years.

Mike is our resident expert in the IFS functionality areas of Projects and Document Management.

On a recent IFS Apps project with a global manufacturer and distributor of rotating unions, siphons, steam joints, and slip rings, Mike took the lead on Quality Management functionality. He has assumed the same role for a system upgrade for a leading producer of batteries and energetic devices serving mission-critical aerospace, defense, aviation, and medical battery markets.

Mike has worked closely with several clients in the oil & gas, utilities, and electrical contracting & construction industries. Beyond his usual areas of expertise, Mike has also handled oversight of Sales Contract & Subcontract Management functionality.

After beginning his career with General Electric Co. as a Lead Technical Engineer, Mike later joined Ensign Bickford Aerospace Company in the Fall of 1990 as a Laser Systems Project Engineer where he helped develop modular designs for two laser firing unit programs, among other projects and responsibilities.

Over the next 16 years, he was promoted to several management roles focusing on product engineering for aerospace & defense, oil & gas, and rock blasting & mining. He held a lead role in the company’s new business systems implementation. Having received Ensign Bickford’s Founders Award for Excellence, Mike has proven time and again his skill at bridging the gap between the highly technical and the practical side of operations.

Mike applies his industry experience in the areas of engineering management, configuration control, doc. man., Lean practices, data control, supply chain management, project management and quality management.

Before joining RutterKey in 2014, Mike served as Director of Quality Assurance & System Engineering with a small defense manufacturer and as president of his own consulting firm, Alessio Development, LLC.
