Christian O’Meara serves as the CEO of Logic20/20 and provides Seattle clients with innovative technology solutions centered on cloud storage and the migration of data. In a case study featured on Christian O’Meara’s company website, Logic20/20 worked with a major healthcare organization in guiding the contract lifecycle management streamlining and integration process.
The background was a Fortune 500 company that relied on a legacy CLM application which proved unable to meet the volume and pace demands of its contracting activities. With hundreds of high value contracts being managed simultaneously, the company had a continuous flow of communications, internal and external, to coordinate. The legacy system could not handle this high-volume flow and did not integrate with SAP. The latter fact made extracting required product information challenging.
Assessing the situation, the Logic20/20 team undertook a seamless implementation of Conga CLM. This involved customizing contract lifecycle management configurations, including user interface and the contract approval process workflow. At the same time, historical data, contracts, and amendments were migrated to the new platform. Finally, Conga CLM was integrated with SAP, so that current product information was accessible in Salesforce, with contracts automatically updated throughout the system. The end result was a system in which data flow was seamless and communications accurate, in ways that boosted the bottom line.
Based in Seattle, Christian O’Meara holds responsibilities with Logic20/20 as CEO and delivers a full range of data migration and integration solutions to corporate clients. With an enduring passion for athletic competition, Christian O’Meara draws lessons from his experience on the rugby field in his team building activities while leading Logic20/20.
One core value that he has had instilled over the years is that winning doesn’t truly count unless it’s a team effort. This means that every player is used to his or her maximum capacity, in ways that encourage individual contributions.
While this process may take a long time to set in place and seem onerous at times, the payoff is that each team member feels involved and motivated to give their personal best effort. In the long run, this pays dividends in building group cohesiveness and the ability to weather inevitable storms that might break less well-integrated organizations apart.
As part of this equation, it’s critical to instill the concept that “opportunities are everywhere” and that the way they are grasped is what is most important. Not every idea will lead to implementation and results, but a “lean-in mentality” ensures that they are listened to and considered. Without fearing retribution or having his or her voice stifled, each member of the organization is given the space for creative thought, expressed before the entire group. If just a fraction of these ideas are effectively adopted, the team mission can be considered a success.

Since 2012, Christian O’Meara has served as chief executive officer of Seattle, Washington-based Logic 20/20, recognized as one of the Fastest Growing Firms by Consulting Magazine. He is a fond supporter of rugby, a sport he’s been playing ever since he was 11 years old. Christian O’Meara has written several articles explaining and revealing how the sport has enhanced his personal and professional life.
Like most sport team games, rugby helps people get a sense of usefulness and belongingness within a team. Serving a purpose, working towards a goal with a team builds character and humility. Winning becomes more valuable as a result of a team effort. Requiring a high degree of preparation and training, rugby also helps players become disciplined and resilient to keep going no matter the costs and suffering.
As a high contact sport, rugby builds strength and improves flexibility. Rugby develops upper body strength as well as muscular strength and leg muscles. Furthermore, it increases the body’s cardiovascular system and bone density, making the heart and the lungs stronger and stimulating calcium. An improved bone density makes someone less likely to develop osteoporosis.
