Welcome to Quickbase! What drew you to this opportunity to join as our first CIO?
What excited me specifically about Quickbase and this opportunity was two things. First, this is a technology that can be used by the business and IT. As someone that has spent my entire career in IT, we never have enough resources and finding people is one of the hardest things in the world. IT should be a core function of the business, there is no business without IT, and IT can’t be successful without the buy-in from the business. Quickbase is a platform that facilitates this partnership in a way that benefits the entire organization.
Two, Quickbase as a company is at the tipping point of additional growth. We are at an inflection point and the way that things have always been done won’t get us to the next level. We need to look at our own internal systems and processes and figure out what we need to change to get to the growth trajectory we all want to achieve.
