I’ve been doing a happy dance about this, because we’re all about to see fantastic people working together!
I was thrilled when Susan called me recently to say that she had hired Michael. Two people I admire deeply will now be on the same team, and the beneficiaries will be nonprofit organizations in Massachusetts that need IT support.
Both Susan and Michael are individuals with a profoundly spiritual calling – though not necessarily in the denominational or doctrinal sense of that phrase. They believe in service to mission-based organizations, and they manifest their commitments in the form of very practical assistance. Their heads may be in the clouds, but their feet are on the ground.
Susan has a talent for hiring great people, and I hope that the other members of her organization’s staff won’t think I’m disregarding their wonderful qualities.* However, it’s especially delightful when two of my special buddies work together. I’m expecting to see a great leap forward for TNB team, as they expand their “Collaborative Technology Management” offerings.
* Likewise, there are other firms in the Boston area that provide first-rate IT support to nonprofit organizations. It all depends on finding a really good fit between the support model and the client organization’s needs – however, I will say that the other two firms that have really impressed me are Baird Associates, NPV, and InSource Services.
