Time for a New Adventure
I am frequently reminded of how important it is to have smart, trusted friends and colleagues in your network. If you’re like me, you read a lot – books, blogs, biz podcasts. I try to absorb a lot, always trying to improve my own skills and our company. But there’s nothing like a personal conversation with someone you trust to really get creative juices flowing. Sometimes you get advice that hits you precisely when you need it.
I was with one of our long-term customers a few months back, expressing my desire to do something new, maybe work part-time and free up some time for a new adventure. And he said, “Or you can make someone else President, let them run the company, and you become Chairman of the Board.” A-ha! And then he asked me if I had someone who could do that job already and there was only one face I could see.
I’m so pleased to tell you that Chelsea Stanton is our new President. Chelsea is a 7-year veteran of Fine Point. If you are a customer of ours, you’ve certainly interacted with Chelsea in her role as Onboarding Specialist. Internally, she’s been the go-to person for the whole team for random problem solving for years. Continue reading below for a quick hello from Chelsea and please feel free to reach out to her directly.
And yes, I’m moving to a Chairperson role. Speaking of my smart, trusted colleagues in my network, everyone asks what I’m going to do next. I state emphatically that I’m going to sleep and read books. They claim that I will get bored and will be on to the next thing soon. Time will tell.
Founder & Chairperson of the Board, Fine Point Consulting
It Is a Pleasure and an Honor!
When I started at my first ‘real’ job out of college, if anyone would have said to me, “in just seven years, you will have the honor of introducing yourself as the President of the company”, I wouldn’t have believed that person. But here we are: I am very honored to introduce myself to you as the new President of Fine Point Consulting!
I started at Fine Point Consulting back in 2013, and I was the fifth hire. During my tenure here, the company has rolled out new business lines, expanded into other locations, and has grown to 30 team members! It hasn’t always been easy, of course, but it certainly has been fun! The past seven years with Fine Point not only exposed me to more accounting knowledge and particulars than I could have ever even known to ask about, but has also provided me with endless opportunities – And for that, I’m grateful.
I am extremely excited to start this new chapter, and beyond grateful to Luella for trusting me with this opportunity! I am also very fortunate to have worked alongside my talented and knowledgeable colleagues at Fine Point and I appreciate their trust in me, too.
