Hi Kristy! Can you tell us about your background and how you came to Thrive?
I joined Thrive as part of the Apex IT Group acquisition in January 2021. During my time at Apex, I served as the Finance Manager and was responsible for bookkeeping, accounts payable, accounts receivable, vendor management, as well as human resources. I loved this role: pulling disparate pieces of a puzzle together to create a unified vision. It also gave me the opportunity to assist with the professional development of my peers. During the transition to Thrive I was concerned about losing that “small company” feel. However, I have found that Thrive is not just another big, corporate MSP – the collaboration between teams makes it feel more like a family.
Where did you go to school or get training?
I am a graduate of Camden County College in Blackwood, New Jersey.
What do you most enjoy about working for Thrive?
It has been refreshing to find that many of my new colleagues at Thrive share similar values. I am excited for the future, knowing that Thrive is doing something good and empowering people to be great within their roles.
Also, Thrive has given me the opportunity to have a voice and be heard. Not just as an employee, but as a human. I truly think that Thrive does this for everyone. It is a pleasure to work among talented, positive, and encouraging peers
Any recent exciting projects at Thrive that you can tell us about?
I am thrilled to get our vendor management automated and streamlined! It is exciting to see progress toward gains in efficiency and ease of use.
