It truly is a privilege to lead the extraordinary people at Ascent Solutions. That may sound cliché, but everyone here has earned the privilege of working with our amazing customers. They are men and women that have worked hard, become the best at their craft, and have repeatedly delighted companies around the globe with not only their talent, but with their integrity, their will-do attitude, and their “heart”. When hiring, we look just as hard at the heart of a person as we do their technical or functional skills. It is difficult to explain what that means, but work with our team one time and it will become crystal clear. We make bold commitments, and we honor those commitments. We do business differently, caringly, boldly. We aim to fast forward, protect, and honor our customers; and we do this while appreciating our own “supporting cast” at home – those that we love that allow us to do what we do every day.
I came to Ascent Solutions as CEO after being an executive at two of the largest companies on the planet, along with serving in VP roles at four VC-backed startup companies. Those companies were great for a few top executives and the VC’s, but not for everyone. At Ascent, we’re doing things differently. We are creating a company where everyone can be excited about our growth and future every day……and I mean everyone. The journey we are on must be fun, but we have massive responsibilities and accountabilities as well. I was blessed to work for amazing companies, but Ascent Solutions is different. It’s better. Just ask our customers and our employees, the two groups that I hold myself accountable to each and every day.
