What a journey it has been! When I joined AvePoint a little more than two years ago as the first Systems Engineer in my territory, the DACH region, we had two talented & motivated sales representatives, three chairs, and phones for each of us. I attended my first global management meeting last year, and at that point I had known or at least heard of everyone in that meeting. This year, this was definitely no longer the case! So many bright minds from AvePoint’s offices from all over the globe were there, people with whom I had only emailed or instant messaged, and everyone brought something interesting to share. A fantastic highlight for me was the tremendous, continued growth achieved by our amazing team in Japan all while dealing with an earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster. I am also impressed with the initiatives from Product Management that have made DocAve 6 better, faster, and easier to use than ever. Finally, I am extremely excited about the overall speed with which all parts of the organization have been improving and scaling simultaneously. I enjoyed every minute, and I am grateful to have the privilege of working with such an inspiring group of people.
