Hello AvePoint Family! My name is Eric and this is my story of how I started with the organisation and the values I hold. It is like a 'Once Upon A Time' story with sprinkles of #Agility, #Passion and #Teamwork.
Before joining AvePoint, I used to work for the Australian Government as a public servant. Whilst I loved what I was doing, the Federal Public Sector is not well known for being at the forefront of technology. Unlike most public servants, I needed to do something which energised my inner passion.
That was when I met Rob Panfalone at an AvePoint Red Party in 2012 at Microsoft TechEd. We had a great time and I found out how much AvePointers loved to party! Since it was becoming late, I asked Rob to 'get me out of here'. He must have been eager to see how I go at AvePoint as he took the message as 'get me out of the public service'.
