Name: Tracey Feick
Officially, my office is Waltham, MA (Lionbridge HQ), but I work from a home office in central New Jersey.
Vice President, Global Operations
How long have you been at Lionbridge?
What does a typical work day look like for you?
I start early so I can talk to our team in Europe and India, so my mornings are usually crazy with meetings! Afternoons are a great time to work on projects requiring more focus. Often, I end the day with an evening call with colleagues in Asia.
What is your favorite place in your office?
I love to look at the wall hanging of the Goddess Durga, which was given to me by colleagues in India. Durga is the goddess of powerful women, so she inspires me!
What is the best part of your job?
Global interaction—with customers, colleagues, partners. Everyday I get to talk to people from different places, with different cultures! It makes for a rich tapestry of experiences.
What is the most exciting opportunity on the horizon for your team this year?
I’m very excited about some of the technology advancements that are going to make us more productive, provide better data for decision-making, and free up time for all our team members to focus on high-value-add activities for our customers.
