We have two more employee introductions to make to everyone: Tim Akin and Sam Lackey.
Tim is joining us as a Software Trainer and Sam as a member of our Support team. We couldn’t be happier to have them aboard!
Tim is going to start us off with his introduction:
“Hey everyone, I’m very excited to be working here at Qualtrax. Before starting on the Services team, I worked at the Metro Nashville Police Department Crime Laboratory. I’ve used the Qualtrax software in two different laboratory settings and am excited to get to help new customers develop their systems into solutions that work for them.
I came to Qualtrax because of its focus on Core Values. More than anything, I wanted a work environment that was challenging and rewarding. The people here at Qualtrax make it an awesome environment where I feel like I can thrive.
When I’m not working, I love to be outdoors. Camping, hiking, bird-watching, and soccer are a few of my favorites. I just finished the Camino de Santiago (800km walk through northern Spain) in July, and can’t wait to find the next adventure. My wife, Elaine, and I live in Nashville with our two crazy dogs. We are both foodies and love to travel.
I’m excited to be joining Qualtrax and feel incredibly lucky to be here.”
And Sam had this to say:
“Hello! I’m Sam Lackey and I am excited to join the Customer Support team!
I graduated from Lynchburg College with an English degree in 2005 and soon found myself in a customer support position for a startup company called Interactive Achievement (IA). IA grew rapidly and when the need for a Product Manager arose, I jumped at the opportunity to grow and challenge the knowledge and skills I had gained from my support role. IA was acquired in 2016, and I found myself yearning not only for the atmosphere and challenges of a small company, but also desired to get back to my roots in customer support. Qualtrax is the perfect fit for me because of its close-knit employees and tremendous core values.
Outside of work you can find me enjoying time with my wife and 10-month-old son. I also enjoy reading anything science fiction oriented or by Stephen King, playing racquetball, and playing cards with my neighbors.”
