Founder & CEO
But building great talent is not enough, for us (Gluon) to do great things for our clients, we need to build a great team, who understands Data and Salesforce. Who can work as a unit, help each other out, trade ideas, learn from each other, cover for each other when someone has and emergency (or just needs a day off), and become friends.
This proved to be harder than I anticipated, for a few reasons, but primarily:
I figured this out early last year, as I was struggling to build my team, so I decided to change strategy. Rather than build from the ground up, I would partner with a firm that has a critical mass of employees, local offices, a caring manager, and I would build a team within that firm that I could hold to my high standards and train them in all the best practices I have learned over the years (and outlined in my book).
I’m proud to announce that I have found that partner in VFG Consulting and manager in Guzmán Furtado! I have been working with Guzmán and VFG for nearly a year now, and I’m thrilled to take this relationship to the next level. I have joined them as a Partner/Strategic advisor to help them build out their Azure, Data and Analytics Practice – in addition to building out my team of Salesforce data experts.
I have seen a huge uptick in the need for everything Azure (SQL Data warehouse, Data factory, Logic Apps, etc.) combined with Salesforce. This is absolutely a huge win for our (Gluon’s) existing and future clients, as we help them tackle the most complex Salesforce data projects.
