In New Hires, Kipsuvians, Life at Kipsu

 

Join us in welcoming Turner Sundby to Kipsu as a Market Development Representative. Prior to Kipsu, Turner was working for SAP Concur on their Market Development Team. Outside of work, you'll find Turner golfing, playing basketball, and going to concerts in the Twin Cities. We sat down with Turner to get to know him a bit better.  


  

What drew you to Kipsu

in contrast to other companies? 

The most important thing for me while I was looking for my next career move was the culture and the people I'd be working with. Kipsu drew me in with how collaborative and hard-working everyone is. Having a culture where everyone rolls up their sleeves to reach a common goal was important and I found it here at Kipsu.

 

 What were some things you noticed about

the Kipsu team during your first week? 

During my first week, I really noticed how willing everyone was to answer my questions and show me the ropes. It didn't matter if they were in the middle of something, they'd drop it immediately to help me.

 

What challenges are you looking

forward to tackling in your work at Kipsu? 

I'm excited to learn more about the hospitality industry and to help create positive experiences for our partners! 

 

What is your favorite Kipsu core value?

My favorite core value is "Play the Long Game"—I believe it's important to build trust and a mutually beneficial partnership. We know our solution can help hoteliers, so we don't need to pursue a high pressure sales process. 

 

 

 If you could meet any person for a chat over a shared dinner,

who would you pick and why?

I would have dinner with Michael Jordan. I've always admired how hard he works and the will he possesses to be the best at anything he puts his mind to.
