Marc Kase

Marc Kase is the Managing Partner at Achieve Agility, Inc.

For the past 30 years, he’s spent his IT career helping companies adopt ideas and technology that sounded crazy at the time, but later became as ubiquitous as personal computers, the Internet, ERP systems, and Agile development practices.

From 2010 to 2018, Marc was the Director of Global Information Services at Hunter Industries, leading a team of 74 technology professionals. There, he established a strong partnership with Amazon Web Services, merged the IT and engineering software development teams, and sponsored over 200,000 hours of Agile development initiatives.  These partnerships and practices helped guide Hunter's digital transformation, resulting in the successful commercial release of customer-facing applications that are generating new revenue streams and increasing year-over-year purchases from Hunter’s top customers.  

Marc was the executive sponsor and mentor for the adoption of Mob Programming and Beyond Estimates at Hunter Industries, which were invented by Woody Zuill and his development team.   Through their collaboration, Marc has become an expert in building the organizational alignment that is essential for these sometimes-controversial techniques to be adopted by non-technical stakeholders.
