Why do you like working at Simplus?
The primary reason I like working at Simplus is the people. I work on an excellent team full of passionate, smart, go-getting people; and I see this culture permeate throughout the entire business. Simplus also provides excellent opportunities for growth and trying new things that I otherwise wouldn’t have thought I would try.
Tell us a little bit about your professional background.
I started my professional career working on a small IT team doing desktop support. After about a year of doing that, the company I was working for decided they wanted DocuSign CLM, and I was placed on the internal project team. The project was implemented by a company called Oya Solutions, and at the end of the project, they were pleased with my work and offered me a job as an implementation consultant. Eighteen months later, the entire Oya Solutions team was purchased by Deloitte. I continued to work as an implementation consultant at Deloitte for about a year before joining Simplus in April 2022.
What do you feel are your greatest contributions that help make Simplus the best consulting firm?
I only joined Simplus about seven months ago, so there hasn’t been a ton of time to contribute. But I’d say so far it’s been my work on a large DocuSign CLM implementation for a top client.
