The Calyx Leadership Team
CEO / Race Car Driver
I live for challegnes and ambitious goals so we can become the best group of individuals and company possible. My role within Calyx is to evaluate and push our team to create something bigger than themselves. We all listen to customers and each other to create a better way forward. And that energizes me.
My vision is for Calyx to be an engaging place where people feel safe to create and pursue what fulfills them. Our customers recognize that drive, and when you see personal codes and missions align, you know you’re building something good.
Chief Operating Officer / Terrestrial Astronaut
Calyx is the only place I want to be because of how we look ahead. We have a real responsibility to current and future customers because we operate in a world where technology changes all the time and your needs continually evolve.
Naturally, this means things can get intense. I pride myself on staying calm and coming up with clear, pragmatic, operations-based solutions. I’ve been a vendor, a consumer and a decision maker, all of which allows me to lay out different paths to an end and help customers better understand their options. We’ve established a very high level of trust with our clients for a reason. And we’re proud of that.
Chief Technology Officer / Director of Mayhem
It’s a funny thing, technology. I spend my days immersed in it. Yet I’m still amazed at what happens when the right people approach a challenge and then create a solution that solves it. It happens a lot at Calyx, because we devour tech and insight into trends, products and industry news to stay current.
We’re successful at meeting and exceeding customer expectations because we encourage everyone here to think about what we do and how we do it, and then consider ways to do it better. It’s a great feeling to work at a company where there are no limits—which means we bring order out of confusion and create things that make people’s lives easier.
Director of Sales / 4th Alternate on Oracle race team
“Nothing happens until somebody sells something.” But when you make it happen because of empathy, understanding customer pain points and looking out for their best interests, you are part of something bigger.
Every company has a sales organization, but I choose Calyx over others because of the culture. We all understand the human side of running a business: motivators, goals and recognition—all of which are critical to an effective sales team. But mostly, this allows me to draw on my intense work ethic, emotional intelligence and really thick skin (along with a positive outlook) to build a driven sales team. There’s a deep respect and loyalty here that starts at the top, and we work hard every day to earn it.
Chief Client Officer / Venison Procurement Specialist
Sometimes things need to be tweaked or customers just aren’t comfortable with a new technology. That’s when I get a call. And I welcome all those calls. Our tech solutions are designed to help businesses work smarter, not harder. But if there are any roadblocks, I tap into my 30 years of IT experience to help facilitate a solution.
I’ve also been told that I have a great positive attitude and I’m the ultimate team player. I hope those things are true. I work hard at them. And I love doing it at Calyx because it doesn’t feel like a job. We’re smart, savvy people supporting customers and each other.
Director of Finance
I’ve always enjoyed working with numbers and with Calyx I’m able to apply that work to help customers in a way that is unique to them. We build the trust you need to have with us when it comes to financial issues.
Trust is such an important need with businesses today, but one that’s difficult to know where to place. I know for sure that Calyx is one of those rare companies. Customers really do come first. And employees aren’t far behind.
Calyx really is a family that works to ensure our internal and customer interactions are positive. And it’s pretty easy to do with some patience, integrity—and my pretty good sense of humor.
When you work with people who genuinely care about each other, it's rewarding to see that compassion carry over to our focus on delivering the very best in support and services. The marketing department might not solve day-to-day issues, but we have the joy of educating current and prospective customers about how we put people at the center of our business.
I love supporting others in the company—and thus our customers—and making sure everyone has what they need to be successful. That people-centric approach allows us to overcome challenges, both internal and external, to set up all of our teammates for success and to make sure our customers know that we want them to succeed.
Director of IT Operations
Calyx checks a lot of the boxes for me in what I want from a company and in a work environment. I help our customers do the same by finding and implementing the right IT solution that fits with what they do. Then I get to assist our team with continuous support for the solution, thus ensuring our customers' environments are running the best they can.
I am a “dot connector” and genuinely care about what we offer and what our clients are able to achieve. Calyx’s supportive employees and culture—along with the reward of solvinig challenges daily—make this a company that cares for its people and its customers equally.
Service Delivery Manager
Service delivery is just a fancy way of saying that I am a help desk manager for an IT company—yet it’s so much more than that. I get to work with multiple teams within the organization and so I can attest to the fact that we are one big family.
We are encouraged to “challenge everything,” and in my role I work to be straight-forward with my team members to ensure they are comfortable doing so and can find a better way for our customers. From weekly one-on-one check-ins with our technicians to broader looks at problem-solving customers’ issues, we work together to make sure your service meets your needs.
