An Insider's view of Compeat

What's something quirky about your company?

Half of our senior leadership is female, which is definitely an anomaly. I think the way this has affected the culture of Compeat is extremely positive, and the dynamic it creates feels very inclusive. On a personal level, to see this kind of representation at my company makes me really proud to be here and also inspires me.


Implementation and Training Consultant

What projects are you most excited about?

Currently I'm most excited about Improving the way our customers can order from their vendors. Our Restaurant back office features are battle tested and have been used for millions of hours, so finding ways to continuously improve that experience and bring customers joy, cost savings and efficiencies is very rewarding.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started where lots of great people started at Compeat, in support. I was able to take more challenging projects and eventually worked my way to Technical Account Manager.
