Herjavec keynote underscores corporate mission
On December 18th, the FAST team gathered in Edison to celebrate a year of successes at FAST’s annual review meeting.
CEO Tom Famularo and COO John Gorman highlighted FAST’s impressive accomplishments in 2014. Exceeding forecasts, the company doubled in size in 2014 and added numerous top level industry experts, including some from FAST’s closest competitors. While FAST has continued to expand, customer delivery has remained the #1 priority.
As the keynote speaker, CEO of Herjavec Group, best-selling author, and Shark Tank investor, Robert Herjavec intertwined personal anecdotes with astute observations on the direction of the technology industry and the unlimited opportunities available to FAST employees in an engaging hour-long speech.
Drawing on his experience as a successful businessman with his fair share of failure, Herjavec revealed how fortunate FAST is to be in an industry of unlimited opportunity. Giving a number of vivid examples from his own life, he highlighted how dramatically the technology industry has changed over the past few decades and the eminent trends that will soon emerge. He encouraged attendees to recognize that, if they could embrace change and constantly evolve, the opportunities available to them, not only in the industry but at FAST, are endless. Herjavec also intimated the audience on his ten tips for success that could easily be applied to FAST’s continued success and growth.
“Speaking with many of our employees after the session, it was clear that everyone was infected with Robert’s enthusiasm and enthralled by his expertise. By drawing on our achievements over the past year, it is clear that we too can achieve our goals as we enter 2015 and continue to reshape the industry by following Robert’s example of hard work, entrepreneurial drive, and the desire to seize on the opportunities the industry provides us,” remarked John Gorman, COO at FAST.
Tom Famularo, CEO stated, “This year’s results speak for themselves. FAST’s technology is positioned to truly transform the industry. We continue to onboard and develop the top industry talent. In fact, I would gladly line up my top 50 resources against any competitor in the industry.”
As the perfect close to a day of celebrations, FAST employees and consultants enjoyed a New York harbor evening tour aboard the Rendezvous.
