The year was 2000 and much of the world was bracing for Y2K and impending disaster. My family was bracing for a different development; the arrival of our second child. As parents will tell you, the second one puts you over the top and as evidence of that, I really needed a different work/life blend.
It was at that time I decided to make a phone call that changed my career and you could say, without being overly dramatic, my life. I had met Sherry Benjamins on a consulting project when I was working for a recruiting software company. With some trepidation, I called her and asked if perhaps she might consider bringing me on as a Consultant.
After 15 years of corporate life, I embraced the vagaries of consulting and recruiting and haven’t looked back. The ups and downs, great clients and crazy ones, interesting projects and those that make you want to pull out your hair have made the journey all the sweeter. My roles have varied but the consistent thread has been SBCo's willingness to try new things and put people above profits. Sherry has been my thought partner, mentor and the right brain to my left.
Congratulations SBCo on 20 years. What a joy it has been to be here for 17 of those. Can’t wait to see what the future holds!
