SmartSimple Employee Spotlight - Gary Modlin

Our Employee Spotlight series will highlight a different member of the SmartSimple crew every week. Take some time to get to know the wonderful and diverse team behind the SmartSimple platform!

Gary Modlin is our Director of Business Development and has been working for SmartSimple since February 2010. We talked to him this week about his hobbies, subject matter expert tip, and the wildly different direction his career could have taken!

Subject matter expert tip:
Constantly increase the knowledge about your own company’s products and services so you can better keep your clients up to date and informed. Keeping clients updated will save them the time and increase our own value to them.  

What is your favourite part about working for SmartSimple?
The terrific clients and prospective clients I meet on a regular basis. The people I work with are pretty cool, too.

What are your hobbies?
My kids, spin class, and beating Brad Robertson and Eric Lauer (our amazing Project Manager and Technical Community Manager respectively) at golf.

What is your favourite movie or book?
The Shawshank Redemption. Talk about perseverance and the will to adapt!

What is the one thing you couldn't live without?
My children... and chocolate.

Random fact about you that most people wouldn't know:
I was *this close* to being a professional baseball player.

Personal quote:
"You can't act like a skunk without someone getting wind of it."
