What motivates you at Coupa? 

The never-ending supply of energy, talent and passion in the company.  Being at Coupa right now is truly a once-in-a-life time opportunity to transform the whole spend optimization market through innovation and laser focus on user experience and customer success.  It is extremely rewarding and inspiring to see the increasing momentum of new customers joining our Coupa family everyday, and how the various teams collaborate to take customers live in weeks.  There is simply immense pride and joy every time the implementation go-live bell rings in the office with another happy customer story told to the whole company.

 

Who inspires you?

The list is very long! I am inspired every day with people who constantly look to grow, conquer challenges, and create a positive environment for people around them, whether in my neighborhood, family, work, or in the world at large.  Every night before I go to bed, I jot down in my gratitude journal what I am thankful for that day, and in it, there is always a list of people who have inspired me, whether for being genuine, extending themselves to others, or setting and achieving inspiring goals.

 

What is your favorite Bay Area Sports team and why? 

I’ll just come out and admit it--I’m not much of a sports fan.  I don’t enjoy watching sports, unless I am watching my kids play soccer or basketball.  However, my family is a big Giants, Earthquakes and Sharks fan, so we have all the logo wear at home, the sports channel is always on when these teams are playing, and I always join the family in going out to watch the games.

 

What are your careers goals for 2013?

Continue Coupa’s heritage with building innovative products that dazzle the customers and the market, and grow the business.

How long have you been at Coupa?

I've been at Coupa for 11 months.

 

What motivates you at Coupa?

I'm motivated by building a Customer Care Organization that is a differentiating factor in enhancing the overall customer experience.

 

Who inspires you?

My mom has inspired me throughout my life.  It's been just the two of us for the vast majority of that time.  She instilled in me the value system that I live by today.  I've seen her set goals and achieve them by hurdling any barrier in her path, and I strive to do the same.

 

What is your favorite Bay Area Sports team and why?

I'm a big fan of the San Francisco Giants.  I like the Giants because they've developed a lot of their talent from within their organization and have successfully moved key players from the the minor leagues into the big leagues.  What the San Francisco Giants have done in baseball is a good philosophy that all companies and managers can learn from. Winning the World Series in 2010 and 2012 doesn't hurt either.

 

What are your careers goals for 2013?

My goals for 2013 are to grow with the company and to implement new ideas and process that will establish Coupa Customer Care as an industry leader.

How long have you been at Coupa?

I've been employed at Coupa for approximately 8 months now.

 

What motivates you at Coupa?

I think what motivates me the most at Coupa is having the opportunity to extend on a product that is proven to be rock solid. Also being able to work with laid back, intelligent individuals on a daily basis. 

 

Who inspires you?

The people that inspire me the most are those that have become successful (in whatever field or level) from the ground up. In other words, those that come from nothing and become successful measured in their own way --income, talent, knowledge, etc.

 

What is your favorite Bay Area Sports team and why?

I'm not too much into sports in general, but the small amount I am, it would have to be the 49ers. They seem to be pretty solid this year to take it!

 

What are your careers goals for 2013?

Some of my career goals for 2013 would have to be the support and launch of Coupa into the mobile space. Making sure this process and the apps are as solid as can be. And of course mass adoption of our mobile apps in the B2B space.
