With mixed gratitude and sadness, we announce Kirby Lunger’s departure as Performance Architects’ Chief Sales & Marketing Officer as of December 31, 2019. Since 2009, Kirby has played a crucial role in the growth and achievements of the company. We want to thank her for her ten years of dedicated service to Performance Architects, and for her accomplishments (too numerous to list!) during her tenure here.
While this may be a surprise to you, this is something we have known about for some time, and we are already well into implementing a succession plan. Kirby will remain involved with the company during this transition in an advisory capacity.
Again, we can’t thank Kirby enough for the enthusiasm, commitment, inspiration and passion she has given our team, clients and partners. If you have any questions or concerns during this transition process, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
Mark Solimini, CEO, Performance Architects
I initiated the conversation with the Performance Architects Board of Directors a while ago about taking time to explore other interests. I also have mixed emotions as I move on to this next chapter, as I’m extremely proud of the wonderful work that we’ve accomplished together at Performance Architects over the years and I truly value my relationships with the community we’ve formed.
Since I know you’re going to ask, I want everyone to know that I’m not moving on to another role in our industry. I’m taking a sabbatical and will be spending the next several months focusing on interests that are completely outside of the Analytics/EPM sphere. I’m purposefully going “off the grid” and will be (mostly) offline, although I will check in periodically to make sure I’m not leaving anyone in the lurch if important issues or needs emerge.
I want to say a profound “thank you” to you all for supporting Performance Architects’ vision and mission, as well as for helping me to grow personally. I will continue to listen and learn from the vibrant community we’ve created and evolved, as you work towards the next generation of enterprise analytics (EPM, BI, etc.) solutions and processes. I’m so honored to have worked with you – our valued clients, partners, and employees – and I look forward to keeping in touch!
With warm regards and best wishes for continued success,
Kirby Lunger, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Performance Architects
