10 Minutes With: RedCloud Alumni Antoine Facon



As his time with RedCloud flew by in the blink of an eye, we made sure to catch some time with Antoine, our newest intern. A rising junior at the University of Washington, Antoine will graduate in 2023 with his Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration, focusing on Finance and Information Systems. We could already tell that he was a self-driven and ambitious individual with a bright future ahead - always seeking new knowledge and bringing his hard work ethic to the table. In his free time, he loved rugby, soccer, football, and snowboarding - so he also had plenty of fun stories to share with us, too. Read on to hear more about his experience on our team.


 

Briefly describe your role and how long you were at RedCloud.

I was a Consulting Intern, working at RedCloud since June 2021, after the completion of my second year at the University of Washington as an undergraduate studying Finance and Information Systems. I worked on a variety of projects, such as ensuring vendor compliance with one of our largest Fortune 500 clients, as well as planning a new environmental sustainability initiative within RedCloud.


What was it like to join RedCloud (onboarding process)?

My RedCloud onboarding process was about as seamless as it gets. I reached out to the RedCloud team indicating my interest in interning at the firm and was subsequently interviewed and offered a position shortly after. On my first day, I was warmly met by each individual in the office and was able to get straight to work.


Given your background and other experiences, what stands out to you with RedCloud?

After the recent RedCloud Summer BBQ event, I was very surprised at how great and welcoming all the people were. As a college student, I expected to feel a little out of place, but I could not have been more wrong. I met some amazing people, had great conversations, and felt like a part of the RedCloud community instantly.


What originally drew you to RedCloud?

I was originally drawn to RedCloud after working on a project with former intern David Liew. I worked on a consulting engagement with him through the UW Consulting & Business Development Center and was very impressed by his client management skills and analytical ability. I noticed he was interning at RedCloud Consulting and asked him about his work here, Iheard great things, leading me to reach out.


Where do you see the future of consulting or the future of RedCloud?

I see Business Intelligence and Data Analysis becoming a huge growth area within the consulting industry. As technology develops and impacts the way humans and companies make decisions, being able to make informed data-driven recommendations will become increasingly important. This is already a large practice area at RedCloud, and I can only see its growth continuing in the future.


Name one piece of technology you couldn’t live without and why?

Unfortunately, I had to say my favorite and most used piece of technology was my phone. It was the easiest form of communication, highly mobile, and could be used for just about anything.


What were you looking forward to the most with RedCloud?

The area I was definitely looking forward to was having more client-facing projects. Through my brief experience in consulting, I’d grown to love problem-solving in a team setting, as well as having the opportunity to work with business owners and decision-makers of varying experience and in varying industries. I’d been fortunate to advise some business owners with 25+ years of experience and felt that I was making a positive impact on their business.
