Executive Network Member Since (Year): 2010
Newly-Landed Position + Company: Regional President, Tier4 Advisors
Prior to landing your new position, were you currently working or in-transition? I was consulting part-time.
How did you get connected to the company where you landed your new role? I got connected online.
What allowed you to stand-out during the interview process? My previous management consulting experience with Accenture and PWC, in addition to my entertainment and media domain expertise.
Did you encounter any challenges while being vetted for this new position? If so, how did you overcome them? For this role, specific IT knowledge was important but not critical. I was able to overcome this by referencing previous roles where I oversaw a small ERP installation and the business process reengineering work I did when I was younger helped as well.
If you could give an in-transition executive any piece of advice, what would it be? Keep at it even during slow times. Network, network, network!!!
What events and/or resources offered by the Executive Network have helped enhance your career? The LA Media + Entertainment roundtable was helpful for connections and peer networking.
