Drew is the retired co-founder of Scaled Agile, Inc. His purpose is to make people's lives happier and more satisfying while improving outcomes for the non-profits and entrepeneurs he coaches.

After starting his career at Anderson Consulting in the late 80s and early 90s, he moved to Van Kampen Funds, a subsidiary of Morgan Stanley, where he used early adaptive methods to define and build new software products and migrate off their legacy systems. Following that, he joined a private startup consulting firm of 40 employees. As IT Director, he helped it grow to a global public company of 1,700.

In 2008, Drew began an enterprise Agile consulting company, Fast Frontier. Drew met Dean Leffingwell in early 2009 when he was developing an enterprise Agile framework for a management consulting company to bridge their strategic business framework with Lean and Agile. In 2011, he formally partnered with Dean Leffingwell to roll out the first iteration of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). Today, 80% of Fortune 100 companies have SAFe-trained practioners. He feels well on his way to accomplishing his purpose!.
