I have two recommendations to someone starting a new job at Union Street Media; #1 get a haircut to make yourself photo worthy and #2 put your thinking cap on immediately after the haircut because you’ll be writing your first blog post after less than a week on the job.
Through dumb luck I find myself batting .500 on the above recommendations to start off my career as the Client Services Manager for our Real Estate team. I really couldn’t be happier. The crew here embraces a work hard, play hard ethos and a sense of warmth that is beyond refreshing. That same genuine warmth is evident in every manner of communication with Union Street Media’s partners. One only need look to my predecessor’s deep involvement in the interview process, devoting her last two days of employment to bringing me up to speed or providing me with her personal contact information as testament to just how much everyone here cares about our clients success.
So a little bit about me. A native of Cape Cod, MA, I’ve lived in Stowe, VT for close to a decade now. When not fixing up our historic home, my wife and I can be found skiing, biking and enjoying the best of VT, usually with our dog, Simon, along for the ride.
My career has focused on account management and sales for small, growing web technology companies. The bulk of this experience was with Inntopia, a pioneer in the travel reservation software service, which swelled significantly during my tenure. I look forward to leveraging my experience in growth phase SaaS applications to create efficiencies that streamline the Union Street Media experience for everyone.
A great foundation has been laid at Union Street Media. I feel lucky to step into a situation with such a robust feature-set, astronomical client retention rate and well deserved reputation. As Client Services Manager for the Real Estate division it’s my job to collaborate internally and externally to build on past success while looking towards the future. I encourage that collaboration to begin in the comments section below.
