What is your vision for your role in business development, and what are you most excited to accomplish in your first year?
My ultimate goal is simple. I want to help more Salesforce customers tackle their complex business challenges with 10K’s on-demand, best-in-class consulting services. There are two unique aspects to how we can make that a reality:
- Prove that metadata assessments can deliver projects on time and on budget
- Give life to the AI opportunity
It’s thrilling to know I joined 10K at a pivotal moment. We have an exceptional team with a real passion for helping companies maximize their Salesforce ROI to reach new heights. I’m eager to contribute to 10K’s maturation as the Salesforce ecosystem’s most innovative and impactful consulting firm.
10K’s on-demand consulting model is unique in our industry. Why do you believe in the model, and why do you think what we’re doing matters so much in the Salesforce ecosystem?
10K’s mission is to give people the freedom to excel at the work they love. This sentiment encapsulates what is most meaningful for the Salesforce experts – the Architects, Consultants, Developers, etc. – that make the technology sing. These folks thrive on getting in the weeds with complex business challenges and building solutions that make a real difference for customers. They deserve the right support to focus on the work they love most.
Our team finds it incredibly rewarding that our infrastructure (invoicing, billing, marketing, community support, etc.) empowers Salesforce experts to focus on projects they enjoy and excel in. 10K has countless success stories illustrating how we execute in the trenches so our skill position players can deliver major wins for our customers.
10K’s mission is to give people the freedom to excel at the work they love. How do you see yourself and your role serving 10K’s mission?
The beauty of our mission is that it applies to Salesforce customers, too. I’m motivated by serving evolving customer needs and identifying solutions they need to transform. If we want to get granular, I also love using tools to assess challenges in Salesforce deployments and provide rapid, scalable solutions. It will be a thrill to see how our mission and services will evolve to use AI at every stage of a project, from definition to evaluation and deployment.
What is your favorite adventure?
While not the most adventurous soul, I enjoy trying to hit a golf shot in a situation calling for focus and execution. When I’m looking for a rollercoaster, I tune in to a basketball game of one of the teams I love to watch.
