Why I Joined Pace Harmon

"I chose Pace Harmon because of the nurturing environment it would provide, and the opportunity to step completely outside of my comfort zone with IT consulting. The organization stood out for its vibrant mix of personalities, the high degree of client exposure it provided to Analysts and Associates, and a niche expertise in sourcing advisory knowledge across the ITO and BPO space.”

What I Like About Pace Harmon

“As a result of the firm’s small size, the frequency of direct interactions with managers and client executives has been more than I could have hoped for. The skills, both soft and technical, that these opportunities have equipped me with, have honed my ability to think critically, provide concise input, and deliver client-ready deliverables to clients that have shaped their industries."

The Kind of Work I Do

"My day to day work includes delivering data-driven insights, supporting contract negotiations, managing suppliers in operational delivery, and presenting recommendations and updates across project goals, client requests and internal initiatives. On my current project, I vet contract documents and supplier deliverables, develop exit criteria and measurement frameworks for transition phases, and manage the reporting and governance requirements for a global IT transition."
