Entrepreneur Week + Accounting Exam = Exhaustion!

October 4th, 2006 · 3 Comments

What a week this is shaping up to be. I’m feeling pretty tired right now… between Entrepreneur Week events and the accounting midterm yesterday, I definitely need to get more sleep! Looking forward to the long Thanksgiving weekend coming up!

Anyway, I’ve been to some great events already this week, so I’ll be sure to post soon and talk all about them. For now, back to law class…

    It was good to see you at the chapter 4 event. Best of luck with your MBET program.

    So, it’s not all Breakfasts and BBQ’s anymore. Don’t worry Dan, you are still living the dream.
    For anyone reading this Blog and don’t know about Dan’s most recent past life, he used to work at ATS in Cambridge. When he left ATS, our manager had to hire 2 people to replace Dan.
    The first position (Sales and Marketing Manager) was filled by Tom Matulis who specialized in medical/pharmaceutical sales and is one of the higher paid salespeople working at ATS. The second position (Operations Manager) has not been filled yet, but we are all under the assumption that it won’t be anyone from our business unit. In the end, both people hired will not have any idea about the products that they are selling, marketing or managing. This may be an interesting class discussion. Deciding who to hire is one of the most difficult things to do in any business.

    Not that anyone cares, but the second position was filled by a Project Manager from another business unit (Systems 2). This individual does have experience with quoting jobs and a small amount of experience with PLC programming. It looks like he may even be sitting in Dan’s old desk.
    In the end, both positions were filled by outside individuals and no-one was promoted from within our business unit.
