My military experience prepared me to deal with ambiguity, to identify and solve problems, and to achieve objectives based a leader’s intent. On a daily basis, I apply my operations, planning and training skills. Dell has incredibly talented people who thrive on challenges, but who understand teamwork. The company invests in people by providing training for their roles, and provides other relevant resources and benefits. Another bonus: everyone at Dell will find time to meet face to face to answer questions or provide support. I joined Dell in early 2013 to run the Engineering Academy for End User Computing (EUC), now part of Operations and Client Solutions. We provide courses to support individual development as well as to build business capabilities. I am impressed with the investment leaders make in their teams. But what really inspired me to join Dell is the company commitment to the community. Dell employees volunteer and engage in their hometowns, while Dell supports worthy causes around the world. I value that culture of making a difference.
