When did you join EMC and what roles have you held in your time here?
I joined EMC in November 2013 as the Vice President & Chief Operating Officer of Global Presales. I work closely with corporate, go-to-market and product teams to align and evolve our global presales organization. In August 2015 I moved into the role of the Presales lead for our Americas business. I now lead the field Service Engineer (SE) teams that support our customers every day.
What inspires you about our culture?
The EMC culture is truly unique, and our greatest asset. Three things clearly stand out and inspire me– first, even in a company of this size and scale, every employee has the opportunity to have an impact, and truly believe that they do! This is reflected in the pride employees take in their work, and the enthusiasm they bring every day. Next, the autonomy that is built into the way we operate and run is truly inspiring, and has allowed for innovation to become ingrained in our fabric as a company. Finally – the leadership at every level. We have the best leaders in the industry, who excel at what they do, and are yet so humble and approachable. Truly inspiring!
Are you a member of any affinity circles at EMC? What role have you played and/or how have you benefitted from them?
I am an active participant in promoting diversity at EMC, and work closely with the Women’s Leadership Forum chapters across the board. The affinity circles have been awesome in promoting “grass roots” efforts to create an inclusive and welcoming workplace.
