I’ve slacked off a little bit on letting folks know when the team grows! I just realized the last post was when we welcomed Tara in January. Well we made a few more changes since hiring Tara and I’ve been excited about each one of them (A LOT!) but we’ve been busy apparently. So go check out the About Us page and check out the bios for Tom Willwerth, Mike Morrison and Evan Corbett also!
Just a quick “Hey! We’re still growing!” note here today. And since it’s so close to the PASS Summit, a quick note about catching up with us in Seattle next week!
WELCOME Daniel Maenle
One of my favorite things to do at Straight Path is sign offer letters. I never knew that would be a thing I’d ever do or enjoy doing so much a few years ago when it was just me and I decided to expand by adding Bruce. Last year when we ended the year with 6 of us, I sort of figured that would be “quite enough”. Fast forward to know and we’ll be ending this year with 11 of us – 10 FTE, one intern who I hope will be FTE really soon. Our additions over the past few months have added so much to us. Tom is a smart guy with a lot of passion and skill and solid ideas. Mike Morrison has been a tremendous support team asset and he’s challenging us to grow and be more efficient in how we serve clients. Evan is a rock star with the daily checks and has upped our ownership and efficiency for our clients. I’m really excited to see Daniel join the team. I’ve not known Daniel as well as some of the other hires, but he comes with a high level of trust already from being in the same circles and Joe on our team has had nothing but great things to say about him. You can read his bio on the about us page – but he is a SQL Family person, he loves giving back, he shares his knowledge like so many on our team do – and he is going to hit the ground running. He brings SQL Server passion, knowledge, experience AND a lot of experience in the consulting and Remote DBA space already, we like fast starters since we get a little busy in these parts!! Please join me in welcoming Daniel. He’ll start officially on 11/11, but I bet he’ll poke in and check out the comments as we await that day we’re all looking forward to. Check out his bio on our about us page!!
Mike C, Jack, Tom, and I will be at the PASS Summit next week representing Straight Path. Jack and I will be speaking in three sessions between us. Check out our sessions or look for us. We’d be happy to say hi!! And before the Summit, you can find Tom speaking at the NH Code camp this weekend. Exciting times!!
