After working for Chad while I was Cloud Sales Engineer at Rackspace, one of the bigger factors in deciding to join the AppFog team was having the opportunity to directly report to him once again.
Chad is one of the most effective managers I've ever had the pleasure of working for. He is incredibly supportive, motivates his team daily, and empowers them to create greatness. Chad has the coveted managerial ability of ensuring each team member is working towards their personal career goals and passions all while outputting only the highest quality of work in their current roles. Chad allows his team the freedom to excel without the unnecessary shackles of micromanagement. He strikes the perfect blend of support and trust with his employees.
As a support leader, Chad sets an incredibly high standard for operational excellence for his team members. He installs the qualities of ownership, diligence, and always doing the right thing for customers no matter what. Chad is skilled at hiring, building, and running support teams of all sizes and he is someone who folks regularly seek out to work for and with.
While Chad has spent time in leadership positions over the last few years, he still keeps his technical skills sharp and has a solid ability to understand market trends, customer needs and product design. He has an excellent instinct in business situations for creating successful solutions to difficult problems and can execute with swiftness and accuracy.
Whether you are considering Chad for a senior level leadership position in Sales Engineering, Support, Product, or Marketing, Chad has the ability to deliver quickly, effectively, and efficiently.
If you have Chad on your team, you are at a natural advantage.
