Week 3: Casually Cool
What do you like to do for fun?
My favorite activity for fun is to go fishing with my family at our summer cottage. The time spent away from the hustle and bustle of work, school, activities and sports brings memories that our family holds dear. Seeing your child reel in a big fish and having a smile a mile wide is something that you never forget. Wearing clothing that protects me from the sun is important. I like to wear a long sleeve wicking shirt and hat that shades me from the hot sun to keep me cool and prevents sunburn.
Week 2: Workplace Image
What do you find most rewarding about your job?
As a general manager at Synchrony, I have the pleasure of leading a great sales team as we help retailers sell and enable customers to purchase products for their homes. Seeing my team connect with a retailer to help them grow their business and having happy customers who can make additional purchases makes it easy to come to work every day. Wearing clothes that project a professional and positive image are important in building relationships with my team and with retailers.
Week 1: First Impressions
What made you decide to pursue your current career or vocation?
I’ve always enjoyed leading teams and driving business results. I knew early on that I would like to lead a company or business segment within a larger company. Having responsibility for the “numbers” is a challenge and opportunity that energizes me. Working with my team and the larger organization makes every day different and exciting as we work toward common goals. Dressing for success is something that I learned early in my career and it’s something that I continue to pass along to others.
