It’s always good to hear about team members who have achieved something beyond the ordinary.
Recently, Kris Meulemans, a Mozy senior sales engineer based in Cork, Ireland, and servicing our EMEA customers, received an MBA from the University College Cork and was presented with the Deloitte UCC Executive Graduate of the Year award for finishing at the top of the class.
The Deloitte UCC Executive Graduate of the Year award is presented to the outstanding student of each graduating class to acknowledge their academic achievement and overall contribution to the MBA program. This is the first instance of a Dell EMC employee receiving this prestigious award.
As part of the celebrations, Kris, his partner Katelijne, and Thomas Healy, a representative from the Dell EMC management team, met with UCC’s president, Professor Patrick O’Shea; Honor Moore, partner at Deloitte; and Joan Buckley, the academic director 2015/2016 of the Executive MBA.
Presenting the award, Moore said, “Deloitte is honored to be associated with this prize, which recognizes excellence in business leadership education.” She complimented Kris’ achievement on getting the highest marks in the class.
Dr. Buckley congratulated Kris for his academic achievements and overall contribution to the class. “With this prize we recognize an executive who has shown exceptional ability,” she said.
Asked about his experience working toward his MBA, Kris said, “The MBA taught me the frameworks and tools to tackle very diverse and complex situations and have proved immediately applicable within my role. But equally, if not more important, the MBA continually challenges you to think on a higher level and broaden your horizon through the interaction with a wonderful team of lecturers and co-students. And perhaps the most important, it makes you realize the value of your family and friends as a support network, without which this achievement wouldn’t have been possible.”
The senior sales engineer role includes consulting with customers on their SaaS strategy together with the sales team, interfacing with Product Management and Engineering functions on the future products as well as training new Sales and Pre-Sales team members. When asked about Kris’ accomplishments, Steven Wood, Mozy’s senior Pre-Sales manager, said, “Kris has an insightful appreciation of customer needs and the challenges they face with modern IT and cloud computing. His attention to detail and dedication to every goal is exemplified by this award.”
Congratulations, Kris, from all of us on the Mozy by Dell team!
