Wesley Potratz - Sr. Developer 


A wide range of work environments, responsibilities and education have contributed to Wes's big-picture perspective and creative approach to solving problems. His technical business degree was the launching point into comprehending technical concepts while fitting them into business needs, and over a decade of experience in customer support has solidified my end-user centric attitude towards his  work.


Wes started his post-graduation career as a data specialist, supporting a sales team for a
quickly growing start-up company – then, a year in, rode the wave into the large corporate scene as his company was integrated into Salesforce (an industry-leading
cloud-based software company).  Wes mastered a variety of large projects for internal and external customers, refining his skills in business data analysis, reporting systems, data integration and customer support, all the while feeding his understanding of the
similar and the contrasting dynamics of small and large organizations.

In late 2016,  Wes moved back to a fast-paced and dynamic environment with Northwest Data Warehouse Solutions to focus on enterprise data warehouse design and medical data management.  He currently works closely with a highly skilled team, as a data warehouse developer and as a developer for front-end web-interfaces such as Microsoft SharePoint. Along-side my development efforts, our whole team has a crucial role in supporting the provision of high-impact BI data for use across large organizations.
