So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen…
As sometimes happens when you have a talented and ambitious staff, three of our long time employees are moving on to new challenges as we close out 2011. All three have had a huge impact on the company and we wish them the best. These ladies have not only helped shape the face of Schipul, they also hold a special place in our hearts.
Jennifer Ulmer, Partner
Well, J hasn’t left us fully yet and is still helping us as a consultant. But after 12 years she has chosen to seek a new path in business. The good news is she has given us plenty of notice and is still around to answer questions and help with our long time clients.
Jennifer joined us 12 years ago as employee number 6. She spoke with candor then and speaks with candor now. Under Jennifer’s leadership Tendenci, our software product, has generated over 5 million in revenue over the last few years. Her work speaks for itself as it powers so many of our client sites.
Katie Laird, Communications Director
Katie has been the brand ambassador, evangelist, communications director, and PR goddess for Schipul. In her 6 years with Schipul, she has handled web design, client projects, operations, communications, PR, social media, public speaking, etc. etc. etc. And brought her own brand of quirkiness and joy to everything she does.
Lyndia Makol, Senior Designer/Developer
Lyndia Makol is a power house. She is an expert web designer and developer who understands web marketing and always fights for what is best for each client. Lyndia is the person that you can trust to get things done, and get them done right. We will miss her dearly. BUT we are beyond happy for her as she takes on the biggest challenge of her life… motherhood!
Over the last 4 years, we have seen Lyndia learn and grow (and get married!) and now continue her journey to take care of her growing family.
We wish all three good times, personal growth and that they may continue on the path to seek meaning. As 2011 comes to a close, we look forward to 2012 with new adventures for each of them. And we miss them already.
Thank you more than we can say to Jennifer, Katie and Lyndia for not only your contributions to our company, but your contributions to the clients we are here to serve. We greatly appreciate your dedication and we miss all of you dearly.
