Paul FratellonePaul Fratellone – Program Director Quality & Test Consulting, MindTree Consulting
In addition to a 25 year career in quality and testing, Paul Fratellone has a degree in accounting information systems from Pace University. There is a big difference between preparing a department budget as opposed to a project/portfolio testing services budget. Since 2000, he has been a Director of QA and is well-seasoned in preparing department wide budgets. As a QA manager (1990’s-2000), creating project budgets for testing services was a required skill. His hands-on real-life experiences from a QA Analyst – QA Consultant will make this a good learning experience for younger QA professionals.
