Loft9 Announces Key Management Promotions
Loft9 promotes Jake Sullivan and Kevin Brockman to Managing Director
Kirkland – May 1, 2017 — Loft9 (www.loft9consulting.com), a Seattle-area consulting firm, announced the promotions of Jake Sullivan and Kevin Brockman to Managing Director.
Shortly after Loft9 launched in January of 2010, Sullivan joined Loft9, after working more than a decade in client service, operations, and software development positions for several area technology companies. Over the last seven years, he has held increasingly complex roles within the firm including Delivery Consultant, Account Manager, Account Operations Lead, Market Director and now Managing Director.
When asked about his personal Loft9 story, Jake shared, “I have had the unique privilege of participating in Loft9’s growth and overall maturity from a small group in the early years, to an organization of over 100 last year. I’ve enjoyed every single bit of the ride. The Managing Director role provides greater opportunity for Loft9 to stay focused on associates and clients. I can’t wait to get started.”
Brockman’s experience spans over 15 years of business, strategy, product, and program management experience within IT, telephony, hardware, software, and professional services. Kevin has an MBA and MS in International Business, with experience managing sales organizations and leading large team-based programs, as well as complex technical implementations.
Kevin describes his path to joining Loft9, “Before starting with Loft9, I had three former clients suggest that I reach out to Ed (Co-Founder of Loft9). They all knew I was passionate about culture, values, being part of a team, and doing meaningful work. Whether it was the way I described what I was looking for or the brand that Loft9 had created, in either case, I’m grateful for their recommendation and knew I found a great home.”
Co-Founder, Edward Beals, commented, “Jake and Kevin are great stewards of our culture and our commitment to client service. They continue to take on greater challenges every year. We are thrilled to have them take this leap forward while providing opportunities for other associates to step up and support our portfolio growth as well”.
We started our journey to create a different kind of consulting firm; one that was steeped in a rich culture of collaboration, learning, and growth. We did so, because we deeply believed those were the things that would get us up every morning, invigorated and ready to work. We also did so, because we saw an intensely competitive industry emerging where many firms were stripping out organizational values, and treating their people like numbers. Not at Loft9. Not then. Not ever. Our culture is brought to life by every associate.
Based in Seattle and Denver, we deliver in four primary consulting areas; Change Management, Business Analysis, Project Management and Process Improvement. Coupled with our staffing and managed service offerings, we provide a comprehensive approach that delivers expertise, bandwidth, and focus across a wide range of industries.
