Building the next generation workforce management solution for such a diverse, wide ranging set of awesome clients, well, let’s get one thing right – actually, we’ve got to get a lot of things right: The people we hire, the team and the culture we build, and the relationships we manage – these are key.
Check out the full story here:
Our staff, Board of Directors, and I have spent the last several months working alongside of Sterling and he’s also had a chance to meet with several of our key clients, partners, and other colleagues in Seattle – many of whom already know him from one of his many past adventures beyond the Seattle-Austin-New York-Boston tech universe.
In case you have not already crossed paths, Sterling is a well-known entity in Seattle. He was the fifth employee, CFO and EVP of Operations at Concur, the leader in travel and expense management, and took the company public well before its recent acquisition by SAP. After Concur, Sterling was the president of another well-known Seattle company – Qpass – for eight years, leading it through a major turnaround and successful sale to Amdocs in 2006. Did you ever use Act! software? Sterling worked at the company that developed and sold that product too – Contact Software Int’l as CFO, through its acquisition by Symantec.
Sterling is an active supporter of the Seattle arts community and is a member of the board of directors at the 5th Avenue Theater.
For those of you who know me well, or perhaps, use our products everyday, you may agree with my sentiments, reiterated in today’s public press announcement: “As businesses increase their dependence upon flexible, dynamically organized, skilled, and schedule-driven workers, their need for responsive solutions to optimize and manage them efficiently is growing.”
With Sterling on board, I’m very excited about the future of Shiftboard, and for our staff – and greater community here and around the globe.
