In today's world, "experts" abound, even if they have limited credentials and knowledge. However, that word hardly does justice to Scott Snyder, his background and expertise. He wrote the book — "The New World of Wireless: How to Compete in the 4G Revolution" — on the next generation of wireless systems and adaptive business strategy.
Snyder brings more than 24 years of experience in business leadership, strategic planning and technology management for Fortune 500 companies and startup ventures. Along the way, he has held executive positions with several Fortune 500 companies including GE, Martin Marietta and Lockheed Martin. He was also CEO of Decision Strategies International, a leading strategic-planning firm and has started several software business ventures. Among them are OmniChoice, a CRM/analytics applications provider, and Strategic Radar, which offers software-based solutions for monitoring changes in the strategic environment.
Snyder's academic credentials include being a senior fellow in the Wharton School's management department, an adjunct faculty member in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Pennsylvania and lecturing at MIT, RIT and CEDEP at INSEAD. He founded and leads the Wireless Innovation Council. He also sits on the advisory boards of Safeguard Scientific, Fairmount Partners and several emerging-growth companies.
Snyder holds two patents for online-decision aids and has been quoted as a thought leader in numerous publications including the Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Business Journal. He is a chapter author in the books "The Network Challenge: Strategy, Profit, and Risk in the Interlinked World" and "Inside the Minds: Small Business Growth Strategies: Goals for Successful CEOs."
Snyder earned his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in systems engineering from the University of Pennsylvania and has an executive degree from USC in telecommunications management.
