2017: A Year in Review
We started the year rounding out some key leadership hires by adding Abe Reyes as VP of Infrastructure and Jennifer Schmidt as our VP of Customer Success. Both have contributed significantly to ensure we have a scalable platform that works for you, and a Customer Success and Support organization to help you make the most of your investment with us
As our company grows, it becomes more about building a culture around core values. Michelle Tucker, Head of HR and People, was brought on board to ensure we’re creating the type of company that you want to work with and that our employees can thrive within.
And thrive they have. In addition to their day jobs with MapAnything, we’ve seen our people take an active role in the community and social issues. Passionate employees created the Minorities in Tech (MIT) group focused on economic opportunity for minorities in the tech space. Speaking of opportunity, the time and dedication our employees exhibited in recruiting Amazon to Charlotte during the #CLTisPrime campaign was admirable and contagious.
In addition to our people led community efforts, MapAnything continues its corporate commitment to the 2017 Pledge 1% movement. This philanthropic model follows Salesforce’s mission to contribute 1% of equity, 1% of product and 1% of employees time back to communities around the world.
In 2017 we donated:
365 hours of our time to various causes like Dress for Success, Habitat for Humanity, Toys for Tots, and more.
$20,000 to Toys for Tots, The Urban Ministry Center and the Second Harvest Foodbank of Metrolina.
1% of our equity to The Foundation for the Carolinas, an organization that serves as a catalyst for philanthropic activity by offering innovative solutions that help individuals, nonprofits and companies bring their charitable visions to life.
Education and mentorship through the Mayor’s Youth Employment Program (MYEP) by hosting a great group of interns from Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools.
I want to personally thank you all for your continued support of MapAnything. Together, I’m excited about what we can do in 2018 and beyond.
John Stewart, Founder and CEO
