“This passion shows up in her drive to deliver excellent customer experiences. We feel her qualities embody the most important values held at Duperon and are thankful for her contributions to our growing company.”
Blanchard will continue focusing on improved processes and efficiencies in her new role. Prior accomplishments in this area include: the development of a new bid review process, positive adjustments to sales performance management (SPM) tools, implementation of monthly meetings with project managers and engineers, along with new employee training. One of her first goals will be integrating estimates into the company’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, streamlining the process with the collaboration and support of a cross-functional team.
“I am most excited about working with my team to find and grow their talents,” said Blanchard. “Being the lead SPM, I am responsible for supporting all territories with the support of my team (including Canada).
“It is so fulfilling to make a difference. I am excited to grow the capabilities of our department, our team and the company.”
