Jeff Rath – 5QF

It’ s time to learn a little more about the people here at Thill Logistics. The idea is based on the website Formspring and the classic Bernard Pivot questionnaire, just imagine that I am holding my blue index cards and asking the questions in a soothing James Liptonesque tone. The format is simple, five questions. The first 4 will stay constant, (3 work related questions and 1 from Pivot) but the 5thquestion… that is up to you! Please comment and send in questions here on the Thill Blog, or send them to me via Formspring to carrieatthill.

Here are my five questions for Jeff Rath:

What is your role at Thill Logistics? As Vice President of Software Development my role is to customize a solution to fulfill each customer’s objectives. When complete, Thill Logistics systems should be a transparent part of each customer’s business system.

How did you get into your field? As physics major in college, I attended a computer science course and was amazed at the opportunities.  Each assignment was like doing the daily crossword puzzle.  During my graduate work, I had the opportunity to work with experts in Neural network(teaching computers to learn), opening up endless possibilities of what could be done with information systems.

Once in the workforce, I progressed from developer to project management.  My current leadership role allows me to pass on the knowledge gained while working in the information technology field.

What is your favorite thing about your field?  The opportunity to work with customers to define business goals/objectives.   The results of these solutions not only allows customers to grow, but allows my team to reflect and review the results to the customer’s objective.

(Bernard Pivot) What is your favorite word?  Innovation

(Formspring): What city would you most like to visit that you have not yet been to already? Saint Augustine Florida is the oldest continually occupied city in the United States.  Imagine how the hard it must have been to survive in the year 1565 when the city was founded.
