I have had the benefit of working with some amazing people throughout my career. One area that stands out, as a professional winning streak, is strategy partners. If you think I’m exaggerating, you should look at the list from the last decade: Jodie, Stacy, Yvette, Greg, Gretchen and Amy.
Together we have built amazing products, that have covered a variety of business functions. We’ve also shared important life experiences. I have been lucky to have each of these people as friends and colleagues, and I realize that it is the relationships that I cherish long after the work is complete.
Today I face seeing a valued strategist moving to opportunities separate from my own. Of course, I would be lying if I were to say I did not cry, or that I don’t wonder what work will be like without Amy, and yet I know that she will add so much to our community in her new role .
I’m so happy to see Amy start a new chapter in her own career, and I know that I will also benefit from the new relationships that I will develop professionally in this new beginning.
