What is your favorite brand?
Since moving to London in the past year, I would have to say that my new favourite brand is the BBC. I am continually amazed at how well the BBC has continued to remain relevant and engaging across a wide variety of customer targets and offers. They are also highly innovative in both their branding (simple and elegant brand architecture), content and technology (iPlayer).
What is a little known fact about you?
Whenever I need a mental break from work I read celebrity gossip blogs…
What do you like to do outside the office?
Given the demands of the consulting lifestyle I tend to spend nearly all of my non-working time with my family.
Years in consulting or with Prophet?
I have spent the majority of my professional career as a consultant. So that would be 14 years in consulting and 8 at Prophet.
What drew you to Prophet?
I wanted to work for a consulting firm where I could make a difference, both for my clients and for the firm. On the client side, Prophet has always had a client list that was bigger than our size, which I believe speaks to the quality of our people and our work. On the firm side, Prophet remains a highly entrepreneurial culture where the responsibility for improving and growing the firm lies in everyone's hands. I love that challenge and that responsibility.
What has been your most interesting or unique Prophet project thus far?
I can truly say that all my project experiences have been interesting and unique in their own way. My proudest moment at Prophet was watching the Mosaic Executive team ring the bell at the NY Stock Exchange the day we launched the company. Fifteen months of hard work went into the strategy and implementation of that launch and I couldn't have been prouder of what we collectively accomplished.
What is the best part of working at Prophet?
Hands down the people. The brightest, hardest working, most inspiring set of individuals you could imagine.
Any advice to applicants?
Be smart and humble. Display your passion and your thinking. Be thoughtful and thought provoking. Do your research on us and our industry. Finally, don't tell me Apple is your favourite brand…
