Q: What’s special about the way you work with clients? What unique strength set you apart and adds to the Kony DBX brand?
A: I would say that my background with USAA is a unique strength that I can leverage while working for our Kony DBX clients. Many of our clients are credit unions, and I am very familiar working with members vs retail banking customers. There is a special bond between a credit union and its members that I understand.

A: Leading our industry, staying at the forefront of technology and addressing our clients’ needs is Kony’s priority, an imperative in the fast-paced digital world. We provide our clients with cutting edge low-code technology, which helps us rebrand our Kony DBX product to our client’s branding and styles rapidly.

With custom features, our clients can create a niche for themselves, standing head and shoulders above their competition. By getting started with an out-of-the-box solution, then diving deep into a client’s needs and wants, the Kony DBX team creates something that will be tailored to their unique specifications.
Q: With your level of expertise, you could work almost anywhere. What draws you to Kony DBX—and not anywhere else?

That’s what drew me to Kony, and with a background in banking, I thought I would be a great addition to the Kony DBX team. I’m ready to be a part of the future growth and success of our clients, which is very rewarding.
