Derek has been a huge asset to PbP since joining this year. As the only Operations team member, he's been holding it down on all fronts. From website updates to setting up our ticket sales platform, Derek is always resourceful and willing to own activities. He has gone above and beyond by exploring opportunities to improve our existing processes, such as using Salesforce.com for our records. He's also been a tremendous help to other teams-- for example, he dropped everything to help the Events team with check-in during our last happy hour. Finally, Derek went out of his way to travel to LA to help with our sister chapter's Plate by Plate event and gain experience in preparation for our event. Derek is always looking to lend a helping hand and we are so lucky to have him as a PbP team member!
