Sharon Marsh Roberts
Ken Roberts

Sharon Marsh Roberts and Ken Roberts work with large corporations on projects that are new to the corporations—on implementations their clients would prefer to avoid. They also write together, and for fun, they are active in backcountry skiing and tandem bicycling.

Both Sharon and Ken use their business and technical expertise to facilitate multidisciplinary teams, bringing together technical experts and business leaders to tackle new and difficult projects. Ken has worked primarily with companies in the insurance and pharmaceutical industries. Sharon has worked in financial reporting and systems for companies in entertainment, banking, insurance, and pharmaceuticals.

Ken is a Fellow in the Society of Actuaries and has a Ph.D. in Computer Science. Sharon is a C.P.A. with an M.B.A. and an Advanced Professional Certificate in Finance and Accounting. Sharon has served as chair of the Independent Computer Consultants Association (ICCA), in which capacity her goal was to seek new ways for consultants to work together to meet the needs of their clients.

Ken has authored ten scientific papers, and his Ph.D. thesis was on active touch with a multi-finger robot hand. At AT&T Bell Labs, he researched computer vision and animation. He has also consulted with clients on major issues, ranging from interest-rate derivatives to business process risk analysis and contingency planning. Ken has designed and programmed innovative systems and has managed multi-person teams. Most recently, he led an international life insurance project for a major insurance company.

Sharon's projects have included systems to implement executive and technical leaders' compensation plans, an FDA-mandated system to identify and collect nonclinical payments to investigators on clinical studies, an insurance system to pay physicians in managed-care arrangements, and numerous financial reporting systems.
