1. What are the top priorities and biggest challenges for your role and department?
The top priority for FRT’s Product team is to ensure that we deliver solutions that align with expectations from the market. The biggest challenge in achieving that is trying to keep pace with the ever-evolving market and making corresponding changes to how we deliver our services as FRT continues to grow and expand aggressively.
2. What is your biggest achievement to date at FRT?
FRT is growing exponentially. I was hired as employee number 30 and I am very proud to be able to say that. We continue to hire more people each week and we are nearing 100 employees. In addition to our increase in capital, our solutions and services are continuously evolving to keep up with the changing landscape. It is rewarding to be part of the development team that delivered the first release of our Client Portal in 2016 as well as the many iterations and enhancements we’ve made over the years.
3. What brought you to FRT and what keeps you here?
I came to FRT because of the small, entrepreneurial start-up culture and the intellectually interesting landscape our business operates within. As we are at the crossroads of finance, law, and technology, it is a niche market with many opportunities for innovation. We are without a doubt the leader in the space, and my tenure continues because of our growth, innovation and of course the smart and dedicated people I get to work with daily.
4. What is FRT doing to ensure they are adapting to the changing landscape of the class action industry while continuing to meet the needs of current and future clients?
We are continuously enhancing our solutions to keep pace with the changing landscape. The market and overall perception of global shareholder litigation are shifting, so FRT is constantly evolving across all departments (i.e., product, operations, sales, marketing, etc.) to align with this new reality.
5. What advice do you have for someone considering a career at FRT in Product Marketing or Product Management?
Always continue to learn about different types of roles, functions, and organizational structures. In any job, you will interact with so many kinds of people and areas that it will go a long way in your personal and professional successes to have a baseline understanding of their perspective.
