My name is Traci and I work for Mozy

Last month we piloted our series “My name is ____ and I work for Mozy.” This series is our way to introduce you to some of the extraordinary people that work at Mozy and who are the catalysts to why Mozy is a great company.

This month, we’d like to introduce you to Traci Magleby, Sales Manager with the “most-est.” Traci manages the sales team for the West Area for Mozy’s EMC Backup and Recovery Services team. In addition to being an extremely approachable and compassionate person, Traci also works with our EMC Partners to close deals to their customer base for Mozy’s military-grade security enabled cloud backup and recovery enterprise offerings.

My name is Traci and I work for Mozy

I define my workspace as …
Functional and inviting (a mix of job-essential items with mementos & pictures of my family). I want my space to be approachable, where anyone feels welcome.

A device I can’t live without …
iPhone

When I arrive at work, I typically start off by …
I usually arrive to work before my team which gives me the opportunity to jumpstart my day. I go through my email inbox, check my calendar for appointments that day and schedule time into my calendar for tackling must-do items. I also start completing my tasks in Salesforce. Once my team arrives, I take time to check in with each of them and find out their schedules for the day and any items needing my attention.

My work routine is …
My work routine varies day to day. Some days I am in a boardroom all day reviewing my team’s pipeline or on management calls. Other days, I am on the road, training partners or visiting customers. And then other days, I am at my desk going through spreadsheets and reports. I try to ensure that I communicate with members of my team daily and do everything I can to help make it easier for them to sell Mozy!

I do/do not listen to music at work and it helps me work better because …
Even though I love music, I seldom listen to music at work. I find that in my position, I am constantly being asked questions and communicating with my team. I like my team to know I am accessible when they need me – I don’t want earphones to get in the way! An added benefit is that it allows me to overhear conversations my team is having with partners and customers. It keeps me in the loop on their deals and allows me to provide any needed feedback.

The best advice I can give a recent college graduate looking to do what I do is …
People buy from people! Relationship building is crucial so start now in building your network and relationships.

Outside of work, I am passionate about …
My family, the outdoors and being creative.

My eating habits are …
I drink lots of water and bring snacks from home so I’m not tempted to indulge in the free soda pop and less healthy options in our break room. At home during dinnertime, I gather my family together almost daily and my favorite part is the conversations we have. I’ve been attempting to curb my sweet tooth this year, so I have limited to having sugar or dessert to once a week. My kids have joined me in this goal and I’m surprised with how well they are doing.

If I could be someone for a day – I would be …
I would choose my grandmother – she’s one of my biggest heroes. She has such a zest for life and I love how she handles life’s hard situations with confidence and grace. I benefit from her wisdom and would enjoy learning more of what makes her who she is.

The “secret sauce” that makes me who I am …
I try to give my time to things that matter the most in my life and I try to live a life full of gratitude. I hope I’m remembered this way.
