Three words your co-workers use to describe you.

Driven, genuine, leader

Why did you want to work for Trinet?

I spent many years working for a technology company that serviced large corporations. I felt it was time to give the other companies a chance to compete. I have always felt that technology can be a competitive advantage, if implemented and supported properly. As such, I created Trinet.

Tell us a success story.

My favorite project is one of the first official jobs I won when I started out on my own. I was tasked with bringing a very successful company into the technology age. That job started out by bringing their very first PCs and wide area network online. Since then I have helped them truly realize the advantage of having great technology. They are one of the largest businesses in their field and I believe that technology was a major factor in their growth. It’s incredibly satisfying.

What event changed your life?

The birth of my children and loss of my father. Understanding your own mortality through the events of others is quite an experience.

When you’re out with ____, you should expect?

When you’re out with Jimmy you should expect the ladies to swoon and the lack of game.

What do people love about you? What’s the truth?

I think people love to hang out and play (party) with me, however I believe most are completely terrified of the following morning.

Three words your co-workers use to describe you.

Helpful, energetic, humorous

Why did you want to work for Trinet?

In 2009 I was seeking new employment and was referred by a friend who told me about how great of a company Trinet was and all of the exciting work that they do. After hearing this I knew I wanted to be part of the team.

Tell us a success story.

One of our larger clients since I’ve been here that has been constantly growing and a lot of that can be attributed to the fact that the IT department has brought them out of the dark ages and has made them one of the leaders in technology in the moving business.

What event changed your life?

At this time I don’t have a life-changing event that I would want to share.

When you’re out with ____, you should expect?

Neil you should except to drink like a fish. Ha. Or if you’re out with Wayne expect to hear a story about 25 years ago and about how that place sucks

What do people love about you? What’s the truth?

I think people like the fact that I don’t try to talk all technical with them and try to speak about technology in a way they’d understand. They probably think that I should shut up and just fix their issue ;)
