17 Apr 10 Minutes with Erica Stowell: RedCloud Senior Associate
Erica Stowell started 2018 off by joining our RedCloud team as a Senior Associate. She’s an event expert with previous roles at Point to Point Transportation, Microsoft, and Washington Mutual, working directly on large-scale corporate events. As she has such a unique skill-set and is in a highly collaborative role, we couldn’t wait to sit down and speak with her about her projects and joining RedCloud.
RC: Briefly describe your role and how long you’ve been at RedCloud.
ES: I joined RedCloud and started working with my new team in mid-January. My role currently involves assisting our clients with third-party events where they have presence, either as a sponsor, exhibitor, or keynote speaker.
RC: What was it like to join RedCloud?
ES: The onboarding was very efficient and I felt extremely supported throughout the entire process. I have been very pleased with the level of professionalism and proactive level of support.
RC: Given your background and other experiences, what stands out to you with RedCloud?
ES: Given this is my first time as a consultant to my new client, I have been impressed with the relationship between RedCloud and my client team. I feel feedback is shared, with myself as well as my account team, on a regular basis.
RC: What originally drew you to RedCloud?
ES: I was fortunate in that RedCloud originally recruited me for a specific role based on my skills. That said, throughout the interviewing process I was very impressed by the RedCloud team and their approach. In previous situations, I was presented to a client without an interview with the vendor. However, with RedCloud I met with both a recruiter and a managing partner before I was presented to a client. This provided a level of security for both me with RedCloud and RedCloud with me – we all felt I was a good fit for the role and were ready to have final conversations with the client.
RC: Where do you see your future in consulting?
ES: My biggest hope is for a strong, ongoing partnership with RedCloud to ensure a schedule with consistent projects.
RC: Name one piece of technology you couldn’t live without and why?
ES: My phone! While it’s sometimes a blessing and a curse, it does allow for availability 24/7 and a flexible work schedule – which is something that is very important to me.
