This ALI Employee Spotlight is introducing on a relatively new member of our team, Trever Berry. Trever is one of our Client Executives and we thought it would be fun to sit down with Trever to learn a little more about her to share with all of you.
Originally from a small town right outside of Jacksonville, Florida, Trever’s experiences along the way have eventually led her to Advanced Logic Industries. She currently resides in Roanoke with her beloved dog Louis Wellington. She may be one of the most fun, bubbly people you’ll ever meet. On top of her fun personality, she’s incredibly hard-working and has a true passion for helping clients solve problems.
What drew you to Business Development, and the IT industry?
“As someone who did not originally set out to be a sales professional, my love for working with people, and natural gift of problem solving, eventually led me to Business Development. I realized it was not only a profession I would really enjoy, but could thrive in.
I’ve been working with clients in the IT industry for about five years now. What drew me to IT was the fact it was such a fast-growing industry, with virtually no signs of slowing down any time soon. It is a forward-thinking industry that is always changing. It presented an exciting challenge!”
What drew you to ALI?
“I was drawn to Advanced Logic for a few reasons. When I was interviewing for the position, I met with our Vice President of Marketing, as well as our Vice President of Sales. After one meeting, I immediately felt excited. They had such enthusiasm, it was contagious. I wanted to be part of an organization that was so passionate about their work.
What made ALI further stand to me, was that ALI focused on managed IT services, not just selling computer hardware and software. It is a forward-thinking company who built a regional Data Center that cross connects to providers like Amazon Web Services. This enables them to offer hybrid-cloud services (FlxCloud), Disaster Readiness, and Backup as a Service (FlxStore). That Data Center was the icing on the cake.”
Most rewarding aspect of what you do here?
“The most rewarding aspect of my job is collaborating with customers to help them reach their goals. Part of my job is to discuss upcoming initiatives, as well as any challenges they’re having. I love working with a client with a specific challenge, and then assemble the right team to solve it. I work with the client to gain clarity on the critical elements such as timing, budget and impact. Then we can present a solution that addresses the need that matches both technically and strategically. There’s no better feeling than seeing a situation transform to a positive outcome.”
What’s the biggest challenge of your job?
“Definitely staying on top of latest innovations. It’s very easy for expertise to become outdated. In order to be a good steward to my clients, I have to not just stay current, but be looking ahead. I look for what’s coming next so I can help clients be proactively prepared.”
What breakfast would best represent you?
“I would be Kellogs Corn Pops because they are bright, cheerful, fun, and sweet. They were also my favorite cereal from when I was a child.”
What’s your favorite travel experience?
“Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italy, no doubt about it. It’s a little town of about 250 people on the west coast of Italy. I stayed there for some time and was able to meet the locals. I’m telling you, this village where WiFi didn’t exist yet changed my life. It forced me to just live in the now, and I love that. I can’t wait to go back!”
