5 Years and Counting

My five year anniversary with Randolph Sterling came and went on April Fool’s Day. For those who know me well, they might say “How appropriate.” However, I would say “How Incredible!”

My career with Randolph Sterling began as I was looking for a fresh opportunity.  The company offered me unlimited growth potential and a completely different career path, however I recall feeling hesitant to leave a position and company where I had built a solid foundation. Would a young company like Randolph Sterling really be a good fit for me, would I be successful? I was unsure of how it would all work out but I decided on a leap of faith.

Admittedly, my first year or so was a bit of a rollercoaster. There were highs and moderate lows in my learning curve, but what grew and became a certainty for me was my passion for what I was doing, and that I was pretty good at it! I no longer wondered is this the right place for me or can I succeed, but instead began thinking in terms of how far can I go and how much can I do. I truly believe in this company and all that we can do for our clients. With Rich Burghgraef’s patience and guidance I found my stride and began to share his vision for the company and future.

Today, I review the past five years. I’ve seen our company grow from a select group of Illinois based clients to a nationwide company with a vastly increasing client base. Our second office location opened in 2009 in North Carolina along with the addition of several staff members to handle sales management and inside and outside sales. In 2010 we have increased our staff size yet again and are continually adding new and valuable services for our clients, allowing me to take on even more of a managerial role where I am greatly involved in the decisions that are made for the direction of our growth.

Looking back I am amazed and proud of not only my accomplishments and growth within the company but in the company itself.

I will part with my final thought: to have survived the past 5 years with a Yankees fan alone is a feat in itself.  If I can do that, imagine what the next 5 years will bring!
