About Me

Hello! I’m Elijah R. Young, a passionate and experienced leader in process optimization, automation, and artificial intelligence. With over 15 years of experience in starting companies and departments, leading global technical teams, and managing enterprise portfolios, I have honed my skills in various industries, including IT, Loyalty, and Marketing. My unique ability to innovate and consistently reach targeted goals has allowed me to deliver exceptional results in both startup and enterprise environments.

As a Director of Process Optimization, Director of Automation/AI, and Head of RPA, I have a proven track record of driving strategic initiatives and aligning cross-functional stakeholders towards shared organizational goals. My expertise in process improvement, optimization, and automation has enabled me to deliver over $40M+ in auditable benefits to business stakeholders in 2021 alone. I am also skilled in data analytics, reporting, and enterprise solution architecture, which has allowed me to create innovative solutions that maximize organizational value.

Throughout my career, I have held various leadership positions at companies such as Panera Bread, Delta Air Lines, and Loylogic. My experience in these roles has allowed me to develop a deep understanding of customer experience design, change leadership, and vendor and partner management. I am also a certified RPA Developer with certifications from WinAutomation, Power Platform, and UiPath.

In addition to my professional accomplishments, I am a proud alumnus of The Ohio State University, where I studied Molecular Genetics. I am a lifelong learner, always eager to expand my knowledge and stay up-to-date with the latest industry trends and technologies.

When I’m not working on innovative solutions and driving business success, I enjoy spending time with my family, exploring new places, and staying active through various sports and outdoor activities. I believe that a healthy work-life balance is essential for personal and professional growth.
