“I was raised in Maine’s smallest town. I’m much more comfortable in the woods than I am in a city.”
Devon is the perfect point person to drive large-scale, time-sensitive executive and organizational diligence processes. His knack for seeing the big picture and getting ahead of anything that might hinder execution is impressive: “I’ve been told by both clients and colleagues that my calm demeanor is reassuring in the face of adversity and that my ability to make the complex, simple is an asset to project teams.”
Called upon to handle Linkage’s international work as Senior Project Manager, his role was to be the hub of each engagement, connecting executives and consultants around the globe. Devon streamlined complicated logistics and harmonized multiple stakeholder groups through deliberate, proactive communication and an always-sunny disposition. His belief in the expression, “Choose your attitude” is to thank for his positive outlook and cross-functional collaboration: as he so rightly puts it, “Attitude is a language that spans the globe.” As a result, he quickly elevated to take on much of the responsibility for strategic account management as Client Engagement Manager.
His skill as a collaborative partner and team player is a key factor in his continued professional success. Both Ampersand and our clients benefit from the quiet confidence that Devon exudes, as he puts everyone at ease knowing that all of the details are in capable hands – described another way, working with him gives you that serene feeling one gets when wandering through the woods.
