I'm a solutions delivery manager and a business technology partner, mainly responsible for delivering the end to end technology solutions for one of the business division at one of the banks here in bay area. I built a team from ground up consisting of PMs, BAs, Software and QA Engineers. Worked for 4.5 years and one day, they decided to layoff me and half of my team.
I took few months off to visit India (after 10 years). Came back but since then struggling to get back in the job-market at a senior or mid Management level. I've started to look for PM level roles now.
I would really appreciate if anyone can share any leads or provide a referral for a Solutions Delivery Manager type role (including program manager).

    I’m confused what you do. You should be able to cover what you doing and what you are looking for in 1 sentence.

      My apologies I thought solutions delivery manager kind of covered what I do. There is a new role or at least a new term of Business Technology Partner that liaise between business and IT at the executive level which I have also played recently, that’s why mentioned it in my post.
      I was at a pretty senior level management position but after being laid off for this long, Its becoming very difficult to find anything even few levels below.

    Can you rephrase your presentation while applying? Solution delivery...., business technology partner doesn’t click always. I will be worried if I am putting same in my resume and if that is not attracting any further recruiter engagements.
    Normalized it to something that wider range of HMs, recruiters can understand. Later in on-site you can explain what delivery or partner thing you mean.
