Editor's note: There have
been several new additions to the Bamboo team since our last "New Faces" series, so it's time once again to introduce the
new folks to Bamboo Nation. Next up is Hannah O'Donnell,
When did you join the Bamboo Solutions team, and what is your
I joined the Bamboo Solutions team at the
beginning of December. I am an Account Manager in the Sales Department, which
means I will be determining customers' needs and helping them to identify the
best solution for their organization. You can contact me at 703.964.2002 EXT
2128 or email me at email@example.com
What are your personal goals regarding your position for the next
My goal for 2014 is to learn something new
every day about the 70 different products we offer and, in addition to that, to meet
(if not exceed!) my sales goals.
What's your professional background?
I attended Salisbury University with a major
in Communications and a minor in Marketing. I also attended multiple Sales
Competitions at the collegiate level. I have over two years of B2B software
sales experience that includes assisting new business and existing customers. I
believe I will be able to use my experience from both platforms to help exceed
Bamboo's 2014 sales goals.
What were some of your first impressions of working at
It excites me to have access to over 70
different product options that can help customers build a solution that best
suits their needs. I am really driven by how truly passionate our customers are
about our products and the different services we offer. Bamboo practices a great work/life balance and
they do multiple things in the office to keep it fun and exciting! They also
have a great group of employees who really work together to achieve a common
goal for the customer as well as the overall business. I am very excited to be
working with everyone here.
With over 70 products to learn, do you feel overwhelmed?
What's your strategy for getting up to speed?
My strategy for learning the product
information has been to both listen to other customer interactions with our
sales representatives as well as to study our Bamboo website. There's
definitely a wealth of great information that is packed into the website. I
plan on listening and gathering as much information as possible from customer
interactions to see what they are specifically looking to do and how that
translates to our products.
Other than your deep and abiding love of extending SharePoint,
what interests or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?
I really enjoy baking and cooking! Pinterest
has been my go-to website recently and has inspired me to try a new recipe once
a week. I also really enjoy traveling and going to new places.
