As President, Herbert oversees and provides program oversight for T&H’s Housing, Public Health, Intelligence/Security, and Treasury Market Segments with $60 million in gross revenue.
She manages T&H’s management team which supports clients such as the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Bureau of Economic Analysis, Internal Revenue Service and Department of Health and Human Services offering business transformation, enterprise architecture and systems engineering solutions. In this capacity, Herbert provides strategic support, thought leadership and technical guidance to the clients on enterprise strategic issues and challenges.
Herbert leads and manages the daily operations of T&H, by providing assessment, feedback, coaching, and support to fine tune the leadership skills of managers at all levels in T&H – from first line to senior executives.
T&H’s business intelligence advisory services help to bridge the gap between IT and business functions. Herbert’s team works to develop a business-oriented strategic roadmap for business intelligence initiatives, tied to key organizational objectives and values.
T&H also provides analytics to help organizations predict and simulate business events based on insights derived from client’s current business intelligence system, or design BI reports and dashboards providing key business metrics as needed. T&H has provided BI services for the U.S. Army, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and state and local agencies. At HUD, T&H identified that true business intelligence on the program could be improved via a strong MicroStrategy implementation. HUD is now capable of retrieving BI data from more than 500 Public Housing Authorities across the country. These reports have eliminated guesswork, increased visibility into key initiatives and streamlined operations which has improved efficiency across HUD. As a certified MicroStrategy partner with certified MicroStrategy experts available to the team, T&H was able to provide immediate value to the HUD client.
