Andy Hafer

Dynamic Communities

Andy Hafer is the CEO of Dynamic Communities, Inc. His vision for the User Groups developed about 10 years ago, when he was CIO at PRIDE Enterprises in Tampa, FL – an organization utilizing Axapta (now Dynamics AX). Early on, he determined that there were other Axapta users out there whose experiences could help him overcome some of his day-to-day technology hurdles. What started then as a few informal meetings amongst local users has grown into a global network of more than 100,000 users who learn from one another via webinars, virtual special interest groups, regional meetings around the world, conferences, and more.

Prior to helping establish Dynamic Communities, Andy served as CIO of PRIDE Enterprises in Tampa Bay, Florida, USA. PRIDE is a diversified manufacturer with over 40 manufacturing facilities. Andy was also CIO of Norsk Hydro North America – a globally focused division of Norsk Hydro based in Oslo, Norway. Norsk is a global leader in Oil & Gas, Metals, Chemicals, and other industries. Andy also had career stops at Proctor & Gamble, IBM, and Accenture.
