After 3 1/2 years with QlikTech, I am moving on to a new opportunity. My last day as Community Manager will be December 30th.
That statement of fact seems simple enough, but when leaving behind a great company with a great product, it's not that easy. Saying farewell to a community of friends and colleagues that have taught me so much is even harder.
I have thoroughly enjoyed serving you as the QlikCommunity Manager and the "man behind the curtain" on our social properties (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) I will cherish the experiences, knowledge and professional relationships I've gained during my time at QlikTech, and I thank you for all that you've done to make my work here meaningful, productive and very enjoyable.
Even though I'm leaving my official duties with QlikTech, I will still hang around the QlikCommunity; QlikView is still the best software platform out there for discovering and dissecting data, and I plan to use it at my next company and beyond...I'll just call it "my secret weapon"!
You are in very capable hands with your other Community Manager, Sara Leslie. In a very short time, she has learned our systems, aligned herself with our strategy, but most importantly she has embraced our culture and understands the great value that our QlikCommunity members bring to the company. She has tons of great programs planned for you this year, and I know that this group of dedicated QlikView pros will prosper under her leadership!
A sincere THANK YOU to all of the 70,000+ QlikCommunity members who have made this the most rewarding experience of my career, and I wish you all the best in the new year and the years to come!
As Steve Jobs said..."Stay hungry, stay foolish"!
