I knew it was a good opportunity and that I would have a chance to make an impact.” She added, “The people at Outsource try to recognize your strengths so that you can best utilize your talents. They put the best people in the right position to succeed.”

Smita was recently promoted to Regional Manager of the East Coast offices and serves as a perfect example of what can be achieved at Outsource when you mix talent, drive, experience, and opportunity. After four years in Chicago, where she grew the integration business and handled some of the company’s most important national accounts, Smita will be relocating to Washington, D.C. where she will oversee our offices in Atlanta, Tampa, New York, and D.C.

President Steve Ebenhack, who was one of her early mentors, says, “Smita exhibits the core cultural values of Outsource and she has made an impact on the company. She helped establish us as a player in the Midwest and we’re confident in her ability to leverage this experience to further advance the company on the East Coast.”

“Chicago was a great learning experience,” she says. “The people in the office are like a family to me so it’s very hard to leave. But I’m thankful for the opportunity to take the next step both personally and professionally. Our people in D.C. have been very welcoming and very helpful. They’re really awesome and there’s a great vibe in the office.”

She added, “Outsource is great in that the company is very frank about having conversations with its employees about where they see their careers in the future and where they see themselves in the company. For me, the timing was right, the opportunity presented itself, and I had the skill set and the experience to fill a need. Sam Jarvis personally came out and was really helpful with the transition. He gave me some training, coaching, and a sense of what the new job should look and feel like. He was a huge help and I really appreciate his support.”

Given her experience with national clients, she will provide East Coast sales managers with a 1000-foot view of our clients and their needs and fine-tune the process in a way that will ultimately improve things for our customers and our employees. Smita already has a firm grasp of what she wants to accomplish in her new position. “I want to focus on growth in the region. All four offices are in great markets and there is a lot of demand for what we do. I want to leverage our Account Managers, Recruiters, and back office support to their full effect so that we can become the biggest player in the markets. I want to dominate in D.C., Tampa, New York, and Atlanta.”
