As our new Director, Partnership Development, Justin will be focused on the development of key partnership categories for our growing client roster. Given both mine and Brett’s familiarity with Justin, I know we’re making a great addition, not just because we’ve filled a critical role, but also because we’ve brought another great human being to this team.
Justin is hard-working and light hearted – he’s respectful and his moral compass doesn’t shake. To put it another way, he’s really, really good.
While I’ve known Justin since 2011, his backstory with Brett is even longer (dating back to middle school, in fact). So while I’d love to take credit for ‘finding’ him years ago, I was really just lucky enough to be introduced to him, and Justin’s become a close friend since then.
When he told us of his intention to explore new options, we took an open book approach, offering to help him find a great gig, whether that was here or someplace else. While we were sincere, both Brett and I were very focused on making WorkBook6 his best option.
As with each of the recent additions to our team, we think about Justin’s role as an investment in service. Put another way, Justin’s job is not to get WorkBook6 more clients; it’s to get WorkBook6’s clients more partners. We wholly believe in this approach – if we deploy our best assets toward our current clients, we know more will come to join the fun.
Welcome, Justin Guido. We’re already better from your being here.
