19 May A Decade with Appian
10 years ago, I walked into Appian HQ for the first time having no idea as to the profound impact it would have on my life.
Getting off on the 4th floor and walking towards the training room for day 1 of Appian Academy, I was both excited and nervous for what the days ahead would be. The training program was fast paced, engaging, packed full of information, exhausting yet fun all at the same time. Having successfully completed academy, I felt confident in my ability to be a contributing member of an Appian delivery team and was grateful for the numerous friendships I had made. Our instructor was incredible, the two Appian coaches were fantastic and I am pleased to celebrate this milestone with my two academy teammates, both good friends of mine to this day.
Over the next 5.5 years, I supported Appian implementations both in the commercial and federal space, on varying team sizes building new and meaningful relationships all along the way. I grew fond of my early morning walks to the breakroom for coffee, oftentimes building new relationships and learning more about how each person played their part in making the company great. Professional services, ngineering, sales, marketing, recruiting, support; the department they worked for didn’t matter, they were all just as committed as I was to making the organization better. Being constantly surrounded by such highly motivated individuals that all shared the same passion for technology made the months and years fly by.
In late 2015, with the unwavering support of my wife, I pursued a personal dream of mine that I’ve had my whole life, starting my own company with my life long friend and brother Walter. Sharing the same passion for technology along with a commitment to a strong focus on company culture and corporate responsibility, we set out to bring the power of the Appian platform to new customers helping them make their digital vision a reality. Over the past 4.5 years we have supported over 30 customers and have been humbled by the incredibly talented people who have joined our organization to create a team of Appian experts.
I am proud to have been a part of this community for the past 10 years and especially proud of the great work our team at Zimpatica continues to do day in, day out; I couldn’t have asked for a more talented and inspiring group of individuals to be a part of Zimpatica.
