Newly-Landed Position + Company: Chief Operating Officer, Discover Echo
Prior to landing your new position, were you currently working or in transition? Working
How did you get connected to the company where you landed your new role? A fellow McDermott + Bull Executive Network member knew the founder of the firm and made the introduction. Networking is 100% responsible for me finding this unposted position and getting my foot in the door.
What allowed you to stand out during the interview process? My cross-functional experience spanning operations, finance, and commercial topics.
If you could give an in-transition executive any piece of advice, what would it be? Never put your transition in a box. Job opportunities can come from anywhere, and your search should cast a wide, and sometimes unusual, net.
What events and/or resources offered by the Executive Network have helped enhance your career? This opportunity came directly through an introduction from an EN member who knew the founder of the firm. I would not have this job without the EN.
