I remember my first interaction with Tatiana because, after I said hello to introduce myself, she really steered the conversation. Though I’d been at Silverpoint for a few years at the time, Tatiana was excited to talk to me, rather than coming off as shy or overwhelmed. That first conversation with Tatiana was a microcosm of our entire professional relationship: calm and welcoming confidence without any hesitation or fear. From simple client communications to in depth discussions about technical subjects, Tatiana was always willing to make my job easier, even if it meant learning something extra. Her exuberant personality shone through, even in instant messages, and never failed to brighten my day. Tatiana embraced and thrived in our company’s laid back culture, but I don’t think that’s a reflection on our company. It’s a function of who she is and how she operates: adapting swiftly to her environment and taking pride in her work (even tedious work shunned by others).
