I started my career in the automotive industry. I started off as an intern and worked my way up to FP&A coordinator / assistant manager over five years. During this time, I realized how much time our Financial team wasted on horrifically inefficient planning and reporting processes. I knew there had to be a better reporting solution than nesting IF/VLOOKUP statements and a better planning solution than spending weeks rebuilding dozens of Excel workbooks every year.
Luckily, I was selected for a project management class. I knew that I wanted my project to be an efficiency project. After looking at several systematic solutions, I realized TM1 was the only product that showed the flexibility, speed of development, and intuitiveness that we needed. After some demonstrations and discussions with management, they accepted my recommendation and the project began. I quickly realized that developing our environment in TM1 was not just something I was good at, but was actually my passion.
After roughly a year and a half of developing in TM1, including a few weeks as a consultant at another one of our factories, I wanted to take the next step forward in learning the software. I looked at several consulting companies across the industry, but kept finding myself coming back to Revelwood. The longevity, the client list, and the reputation made Revelwood the place to be.
During my interviews, I got to speak with a Revelwood employee. He told me: “You know how you’re in the top 10% of your company? That’s everyone here.” That statement stuck with me and has proven to be true. There has not been a day yet where I haven’t learned something since I started with Revelwood, and I feel very proud to be a part of such a capable team.
