 Skehana White Paper 2018

  • Jeff Wainwright

    A New York native of Irish descent, was a Hyperion (IMRS) client at Aetna Life & Casualty in Hartford, Connecticut for 3 years before joining Hyperion in 1993. After 10 years in product management at Hyperion, including his integral role in the development of Hyperion Enterprise and its global statutory reporting capabilities, Jeff was promoted onto the alpha program to create a new leading edge solution for the marketplace; Hyperion Financial Management (HFM). After HFM revolutionized the CFO's desktop, Jeff moved into the Hyperion partner community and founded Skehana Systems, LLC in 2002. Since its inception, Skehana has retained 100% of its clients with Jeff at the helm!
