10 Minutes With: Senior Marketing Manager Yan Ma



Today, we’re connecting with Yan Ma, our new Senior Marketing Manager. Despite joining our team during a unique time in our society and economy, Yan is off to the races with her clients, providing expert-level services based on a career in technology.

Yan’s expertise lies in many areas, from digital marketing to vendor management and process improvement. With previous experience at Microsoft as a Product Marketing Manager and a consultant, she’s a natural fit for our RedCloud team, too. We recently had the chance to sit down (virtually, of course!) with her about her RedCloud experience so far.


 

Briefly describe your role and how long you've been at RedCloud.

I am a Senior Marketing Manager and have been with RedCloud for three months. I manage and produce go-to-market and readiness communications to support global sales of Microsoft Teams. I collaborate with stakeholders and content contributors across the organization from compete to product investment for advisories, newsletters, pre-reads (for events), etc.


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

In my experience, it was very streamlined and transparent. I’m not new to consulting companies, so some of the onboarding at RedCloud was industry standard. What I felt was different was their eagerness to meet me, get to know me, and quickly place me. It was a very smooth process for me.


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

Their professionalism, personable communication style, and ongoing check-ins/feedback.


What originally drew you to RedCloud?

After a former coworker at Microsoft introduced me to one of RedCloud’s recruiters, I was drawn to the firm by their approach. The recruiting team was very personable, and they tried to find out what areas of marketing I was interested in for a good match. Also, they had various opportunities for me to explore right away!


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

Hmm…well, working in the age of the gig economy, I’ve seen more and more consulting companies over the past few years pop up, so it’s gotten quite competitive. Due to the flexibility and ability to choose which projects contractors want to (personally) pursue, I believe it will remain an attractive alternative to the typical 9-5.


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

Hardware – my mobile for obvious reasons; software – Instagram for obvious reasons 😊


What are you looking forward to the most this year with RedCloud?

I want to continue growing our relationship with our client and expanding my professional experience with my current role, along with the additional training RedCloud offers.
