March 2001 to May 2003
The start-up company White Amber was an application service
provider that targeted large consumers of contingent labor.
Having joined the company after its maiden year, I helped
shape the company into one of the top three recognized
industry solution providers, according
to an analyst from CIBC.
While with White Amber, I reported directly to the executive
team and handled all marketing related duties and responsibilities.
I briefed analysts regularly, provided marketing support
for our account management team, and even helped with
training during massive implementations with our Fortune 500
For my efforts, the executive team and my peers honored
me with its inaugural "Most Outstanding Employee" award.
Although the company reached profitability, it was eventually
sold by the controlling private investment
firms. To make the company more attractive for sale, many executives and
salaried employees were let go, including myself.
