Running on innovation

Cara is a driven leader with a passion for innovation. She lives to apply pioneering technology to deliver the best possible results for our clients.

Cara began her career implementing Siebel Systems (a.k.a., that software everyone had before SalesForce.com) and working as a program manager in the IT department at Aimco.

Outside of work, Cara is always running. She starts each day with a run and is always up for a friendly challenge – and a dash of trash talking – when competing in the Cherry Creek Sneak or Turkey Trot.  She’s always learning, reading, attending events, and is also on the board of the Society for Information Management.
