Presidential Point of View--With Ann Tancredi-Brown

September 28, 2007

As President of your organization what does an average day look like?

I leave the house at 7:30; return at 7:30PM. In between I take B to school/ and or pick her up 2-3 times a week. I glance at my email on the train. Once in the office, I read my email including RFP's. I attend scheduling/status meetings at 11:45. I attend job related meetings/conference calls and business planning meetings, work with our bookkeeper on accounting related issues, sign checks, wire transfer documents, review invoices and billing.

What was the best business decision you ever made?

The best decision I have ever made was to agree to become a partner in Gazelle.

As a business leader how do you measure success?

I measure success by the trust our clients place in us and by our long term client relationships which have enabled us to grow and change, hopefully in step with the industry. I also measure success by having the clients and resources to employ a hard working and motivated team.

Are there certain qualities that you look for in people you are hiring?

I look for people who have high quality standards and work ethic, usually at a very senior skill level. I try to determine whether or not they will be a good team player.
