At the beginning of this year, I found myself at a moment of change. Since opening our doors in 2006, 3Pillar has experienced strong and steady growth. We have hired a top-notch team to collaborate with our clients, and we have earned accolades in everything from being named a top service provider in Forrester’s 2018 Now Tech Report to being highlighted in Washington Post’s Top Workplaces in 2017.
But now, it’s time to take our company to the next level. We are expecting to exceed 20% revenue growth and reach 1000 employees this year. As a result, we have added two key leaders to further build the team that will get us there — each of whom is uniquely equipped to support our growth from an emerging to a recognized leader in digital product development services.
Our new VP of Technology, Scott Varho, was the ideal choice to head our solutions architecture and technology consulting teams. His experience leading product for EverFi and Interfolio gave him the ultimate foundation to connect our highly talented, skilled, committed, and experienced practitioners with clients for short and long term value drivers.
We added Margaret Shepard as our new VP of Marketing and Communications to lead our marketing and public relations teams. It has become clear that it is time for 3Pillar to transition from one of the Mid-Atlantic’s best known secrets to a known industry leader. Margaret’s strong combination of agency, corporate, and tech communications experience, most recently at 1776 and UNION, will elevate our strategic marketing and communications initiatives.
As a product development specialist, 3Pillar has and is primed to continue to experience rapid expansion while continuing to deliver a quality experience for our customers. These recent hires will ensure that our operations continue to meet market demand and delight our clients as we scale.
