Tell us a little bit about your role at Lionbridge :
I am responsible for the development and execution of Lionbridge’s technology strategy to support our global businesses.
What does a typical workday look like for you?
There is no typical day in the Technology department as there is always a crisis in some part of the world that needs attention. I am normally an early starter and after my first and only double espresso for the day I tend to talk to my team about issues activities for the day, participate in various project reviews and engage in follow up meetings and calls with different members of John’s extended management team. Managing a large geographically diverse group, I do try and take time every week to reach out to different members of the Technology team and get unfiltered views on what is going on.
