This week for our Day in the Life of a Sutherland Global employee, I caught up with Kelley Flanegan who is from Rochester, NY!
Executive Assistant to the Chief Financial Officer SGS, Global Accounting Officer, Chief Financial Officer SHS, and Senior Vice President of Global Development/Mergers & Acquisitions
- Who at Sutherland has been your biggest inspiration?
“All of my fellow Global Finance colleagues. We all appreciate each other and I have never worked alongside a more caring, generous, and professional group of individuals. Especially Shripriya Kannan, the Senior Finance EA in APAC. When my Officers travel to APAC, she always goes above and beyond to help and support them. She is always kind, appreciative, and dependable.”
- What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?
“I love to watch documentaries about anything. I have a deeper appreciation for learning about history, science, nature, and different cultures now than when I was younger”
- What parts of your job do you find most enjoyable?
“The Department I work in and the four individuals I support. The Finance Team is a group of truly wonderful people. We laugh every day and have such a deep professional respect for each other. We are a very tightly knit team.”
- If you could start all over again, would you change your career path in any way? Why?
“I did have a very different career years ago, my dream career in fact. For over 23 years I was a Ballerina. I have performed with professional companies, and being on a stage performing such beautiful art has brought me many incredible experiences, taken me to many exquisite countries, and introduced so many interesting people into my life. Unfortunately, the extreme physical demands on the body, and injuries, forced me into a premature retirement. However, the discipline, grace, and life experiences I gained during my ballet career I have carried with me in every aspect of my life.”
