Stacey McLeod just celebrated an anniversary. As of last month, she’s been with us six years.

Stacey started out as a Business Support Associate and moved steadily through the ranks, from Lead to Senior Lead to Business Support Manager. Finally, she took the skills acquired in her various roles and applied them to Sales.

I asked Stacey a few questions about her time with us and learned a little bit about our  account executive along the way.

First, tell us about yourself. What do you do in your free time?

Free time? What is that? When I’m not working, I’m planning my wedding, playing with my two Siberian Huskies, training for a marathon or spending time with friends.

How many marathons have you run? Which are you most proud of?

I trained for Fueled by Fine Wine Half last summer, but this summer is a big one for me. I’m getting married and turning 30. I would like to enter the next chapter of my life by completing a big goal of running three half-marathons, or one full and the Pindale Half. The one I’m most excited about is the Pindale, WY, half marathon.

Tell us about your journey, from where you began to where you are now.

When I started, I was told that personnel should know more when they leave the company than they did when they started. My journey has not been easy, but I’ve grown a lot as a person. The skills I’ve learned have helped me in my professional and personal life.

How different is the company now from when your first started?

It’s a lot different! When I started, there were maybe 50 associates working in an office building. Only three people worked the graveyard shift.

What’s your favorite thing about the company?

It is constantly evolving.

Any words of wisdom you’d like to share with those first starting out?

Don’t live to work, work to live!

Stacey is a prime example of AnswerConnect’s firm belief in investing in its people. As AnswerConnect continues to evolve, we look forward to many more years of watching her grow with the company.
