I was first introduced to Small Footprint and founder Richard Starets in 2008 as a customer. The experience was so positive that I bought a stake in the company in 2009 after being laid off in the recession. Although my title was now CTO, as an owner I wore every hat from solutions architect to sales and account executive. As our company grew in both Winston-Salem, NC and Cluj-Napoca, Romania my responsibilities expanded to include HR and CFO as well. We grew year-to-year not only in revenue, but also in people and built a culture that is one of my proudest professional accomplishments to date.
In 2017 we decided it was time to take our careers and the company to the next level. We took our time in finding a company that we knew would ensure the continued growth of our business and our people, but more importantly a company that understood and embraced our culture. We found this in Globant and now I’m working hard to ensure that the culture we built lives on in the Globant world as we continue to grow our business in Winston and Cluj.
