Success Stories

I have always known Kelly to be a smart hardworking professional. Her dedication to her clients and expanding her own level of expertise is something to be admired. She is talented and skilled in the area of equity compensation administration and puts in the effort so often missing in today's work environment. I would hire her if I had a position open.
Kelly was the chief architect in creating the stock administration group at prior to going public. She created the process through E*Trade to manage employee options, Citibank for stock sales and 10b5-1 plans, and the reporting process for the capitalization table and FAS accounting requirements. Internally, she worked closely with the Human Resources, Legal and Accounting teams to ensure that the process from grant to sale was a streamlined and accurate process. Kelly's hard work and dedication put at the forefront of stock administration programs which is critical in today's environment.
Kelly is one of finest people I have worked with, I was impressed with her work ethic, professionalism and detailed oriented. She is a tremendous asset and an absolute pleasure to work with
Talent Acquisition
Kelly provided excellent advice to SST regarding best practices on how our employee stock option program should be run. In addition, Kelly put in countless nights and weekends to meet crazy deadlines and did so with humor and grace! Kelly is the one you want to hire for deep knowledge, skills, dedication, and just a wonderful person.
