Builder's gotta build.
With excitement and some sadness I wanted to make sure everyone who reads this blog (thanks mom) knew that I have resigned my position as Director of Product Management at SONIC and have accepted a position with the State of Oklahoma to focus on Digital Transformation!!
Over the last 4+ years, we have built some amazing things at SONIC on multiple platforms: web, mobile, voice, and POPS!! I have worked arm in arm with talented team members from technology, operations, marketing, cyber security, customer support, accounting, quality assurance, media, legal and yes, even tax. Not to mention all of our corporate owned stores and franchisees -- to deliver a best in class Order Ahead solution across the QSR/Fast Casual space. It has been truly amazing to be apart of this team, company and project. But as things go, I'm a builder... and as we move into the maintenance phase of the project, it's time for me to move on to a new problem. I am super excited to join the State of Oklahoma as our newly elected Governor puts an emphasis on "Digital Transformation" and "Government Transparency." You'll hear more as I begin to dig in.
To the team at SONIC -- thanks for all your passion, work, late hours, failures, successes, wins and presence. Truly it has been an honor to work with each of you.
P.S. To my teammates on the Product team. You dudes are my brothers from another mother, thanks for being the most passionate, opinionated and hard working teammates I’ve ever had. Recruiters... go hire these guys. They are talented and just good people.
