We hold social events in the office often at SilkRoad.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I transitioned from an SDR to a Client Executive, where the opportunities for growth are endless. During weekly meetings with Bob Dvorak (CEO) we strategize on my Fortune 500 accounts, discuss company direction and laugh about off topic discussions. I am grateful to have the CEO’s ear and be in an enterprise closing situation early in my career.
