“Pivot. Pivot. Piv-ot. Piv-ot. PIVOT!”

Q. Typical day

In my approach to what I do, I'm pretty sure there are no "typical days."

Q. Career highlight(s)

In my career, I've been fortunate to work with many talented teams, and together, we've been able to take on a giant theme park mouse, confront dinosaurs in financial services, battle entrenched leaders in technology, displace kings of consumer electronics, elevate the norms in healthcare and advance the cause of automotive excellence. But all that was simply a warm up. I truly believe my career highlight(s) are yet to come.

Q. Companies my work has supported

Q. Favorite quote

"Pivot. Pivot. Piv-ot. Piv-ot. PIVOT!" 

Being successful in life and in business has always required an openness to change, a collaborative mindset and the confidence to adapt to new situations on the fly. This is part of our design thinking approach that encourages trial and error, pushes boundaries and commits to continuous improvement rather than delayed perfection.

- Ross Geller
