Haitham Salawdeh

Haitham Salawdeh, who co-founded Corporate Technology Solutions (CTS) in 1997, currently serves as President for CTS. While his role with CTS is critical, he also continues to serve as a sought after consultant and is actively involved with many client projects.

Haitham has successfully overseen and implemented many major projects for the financial services, investments services, healthcare and leasing industries. While he continues to maintain very deep technical skills in BI, Datawarehousing, Web and Client/Server technologies, Haitham also has functional focus. He sees technology as nothing more than a tool. He gets excited about technology but ultimately he will always ask, "How will this specific technology help solve my business problem?"

Haitham graduated in 1990 from Bonn University, Germany, with a "Vor-diplom" (B.S.) in Math and Theoretical Computer Science. In 1994, he earned a B.S. in Computer Science from UW-Madison, and in 2003 he received his M.S. in Computer Science from UW-Milwaukee. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D.
