Employee Spotlight: Erin Jimison

Meet our employee spotlight of the month: Erin Jimison, Vision Net’s Executive Sales Manager with our Wholesale department, loves the work-Life balance provided with this opportunity. 

What is your position at Vision Net and what do you do? 

I’m the Executive Sales Manager for our Wholesale Division so I’m the main point of contact for our customers as they seek out our Wholesale services and expertise.   

How long have you worked at Vision Net? 

Nine months. 

What made you choose Vision Net? 

I had the opportunity to attend Vision Net’s Open House in 2020.  I was quite taken by the interactions I had with the Vision Net team members I met that day.  There was an obvious company culture of respect and teamwork.   I remember leaving Granite Tower thinking it must be a great place to have a career.  Consequently, when an opportunity to join the company presented itself, I knew it was something I needed to thoughtfully consider, despite the fact I was not looking for a change. 

What 3 words describe Vision Net? 

Quality, Accountability, and Synergy. 

What is your favorite Vision Net perk? 

A healthy work/life balance. 

What is your favorite thing you have learned at Vision Net? 

I have enjoyed learning how each of our customers operates and how we customize our services to meet their objectives. The same goes for our shareholders and partners. Each is different and we try to tailor our processes and communication so we can work better with each of them. 

What challenges do you enjoy at Vision Net? 

Challenges at Vision Net are endless. I’m learning every day.  And some of our most seasoned, highly knowledgeable team members say the very same thing.  I find that encouraging.   It’s ok I still don’t have all the answers. 

Are there any projects you have worked on that you’re proud of? 

I’m proud to be involved in anything Vision Net-related. 

What do you enjoy most about being a part of the Vision Net team? 

I appreciate my colleagues’ attitudes and commitment to their craft.  When I ask for help, I have been met with thoughtful explanations and support. 

What advice do you have for prospective Vision Net candidates? 

Don’t hesitate. Put yourself out there even if you are unsure if your experience or knowledge base is sufficient.  If you are willing to work hard, your efforts will be met by our team of professionals willing to support you and educate you. 

What is something people would never guess you do in your role? 

I don’t think there’s anything that would surprise anyone. I will say, however, that one thing that doesn’t get said enough about Sales professionals in general is that we are only as good as our team and service. Having quality operations, seamless processes, meticulous colleagues – is my and anyone else in Sales #1 advantage.  Customers won’t continue to buy from you if you can’t back it up post-sale. 

With the changes in technology, what is the greatest innovation you have seen in your lifetime? 

I believe how we communicate and interact with one another has transformed our lives most significantly.   

Do you have any talents or hobbies? 

I’m an avid runner. 

How do you define success?   

Success isn’t a place or juncture that you arrive at one day. Rather, it’s a mind-set and approach to life and all its challenges.
