As we kick off a brand new year, here at Protiviti we take some time to celebrate individuals who were recently promoted to new career levels across the organization. This month, we will spotlight many of those professionals through a “Protiviti Promos” series that will celebrate this career milestone. A career promotion is a testament to an individual’s hard work and success. What does success look like at Protiviti? Let’s meet Shelly.
Protiviti Promotion Spotlight: Shelly
- Years at Protiviti: “It will be 8 years this May.”
- Path to Protiviti: “I’m a campus hire from the University of Central Florida and I interned with Protiviti while I was still in school.”
- Current Area of Focus: “I started in Internal Audit and am currently working in Risk and Compliance, specifically focused on Anti-Money Laundering.”
- What do you enjoy about building your career at Protiviti? “The flexibility! Protiviti has allowed me to try new things and develop the career I want based on my interest and skills. I’ve transferred from Orlando to San Francisco (in 2012) and then again to London (in 2013). I also started in Internal Audit and then transitioned into Risk & Compliance (in 2013). I’ve had a tremendous breadth of experience which has allowed me to identify and focus on the areas I’m truly interested in – I can’t say many organizations allow you to do that!”
- Who has played a critical role in your development and how? “Managing Directors Phil Fretwell and Jeff Tecau. They’ve both always provided honest feedback and provided practical advice about learning what I want in my career and achieving that. Even after I transferred from the Orlando office, we’ve stayed in contact and they still act as mentors for me.”
- What inspires you outside of work? “Traveling (my boyfriend and I visited 17 countries in 2015), running, reading and working with student-athletes (I was a student athlete in college).”
- How are you celebrating or commemorating this important career milestone? “A new piece of David Yurman! I was introduced to Yurman by Protiviti colleagues in Orlando when I started working and have indulged with every promotion!”
Congratulations to Shelly and to all our #ProtivitiPromos!
