Kimberly came to Salesforce in October 2010 after working many years as a technical trainer at several different organizations. What drove her to explore the opportunity at Salesforce, you ask? She told us, “There were only about 5,000 people at the company when I joined. Everyone seemed like part of one giant family and I thought that this was a place where I really fit in.”
Kimberly’s first role at Salesforce, as an eLearning Technical Lead, was a perfect fit given her experience in the space.In this role, Kimberly was in charge of managing the maintenance and delivery of online training courses for the company. This would eventually evolve into what is now known as Salesforce University. Then in 2013, Kimberly’s Vice President (VP), at the time, left for a job at Appirio, a Salesforce consulting partner that provides strategic, operational, change enablement, and user adoption services. Kimberly’s VP knew how great she was at her job and when a similar role opened up at Appirio in 2014, she reached out to Kimberly to gauge her interest. “The role at Appirio was essentially what I was doing at Salesforce at the time. I really enjoyed working for my VP and wanted to be under her leadership once again,” said Kimberly. She left Salesforce to join Appirio in July of 2014.
