5 Questions with Chris Garber
How long have you worked at Blue Slate?
I started with Blue Slate back in 2002, I just recently hit my "ten years of service" anniversary with Blue Slate.
How did you end up at Blue Slate?
I met Rick Barnett (Blue Slate CEO) through a mutual friend. I was working with Accenture focusing on implementing ERP solutions to Financial Services clients. I enjoyed consulting, but I wanted to work with a more agile/dynamic consultancy.
What do you love about your job?
I enjoy working with a great group of people everyday and am always amazed at the types of solutions we deliver. Our client list can go head-to-head with any large consultancy and the projects we work on are some of the most cutting edge in the industry. Lastly, I don't say we are in the consulting business... we are in the people business. I love delivering solutions that help make people's lives better.
What draws people to work at Blue Slate?
I belive people hear the chatter about a bleeding edge BPM Consultancy in Albany and they become intrigued. Our people work with some of the hottest technologies in the market today and help solve some of the most challenging problems for some of the largest companies in the world... that would get me excited!
How would you describe the typical Blue Slate employee?
A person that enjoys solving problems and isn't afraid to take risks.
