...“It was something that I had not been looking for,” Gustavsson said. “I had really enjoyed being in IT consulting, having my own clients and working with them. But when the opportunity came up, I thought, ‘This is an amazing opportunity.’ It’s the first time I ever interviewed somewhere where I got back in my car, called my husband and said, ‘If I don’t get this, I feel like I’m missing out.’”
She added: “I’ve heard companies say that as they grow bigger, it’s harder to bob and weave, it’s harder to be entrepreneurial. But that spirit is still absolutely alive here. You have an idea? Go work it and we’ll support you and allow you to do that and see what happens.”
