    Jack Drew

    Director

    Jack worked for HSBC and Lloyds Banking Group before joining Auriemma Group in 2014 as a Manager in the Partnerships practice. He’s been promoted twice in his time at Auriemma, going from a support role to leading projects, securing new business, and helping junior employees develop.

    What’s your best career advice?

    When I was looking at what to study at university, the best advice I got was to do what you love. I’ve followed that through in my career. For me, if it’s not interesting and won’t motivate you, you won’t perform at your best level. So my best advice is to find something you’re genuinely interested in, something you have a genuine appetite and hunger to learn about.

    What experiences have had the biggest impact on your career development?

    I started out working in bank branches on the front line. In that type of role, an important skill is translating written communications in a way that makes them easy for customers to understand. I quickly learned the importance of language and communication and how you explain something. I’ve used those communication skills in my role at Auriemma. How do you communicate the most salient bits of information in a concise manner, and how do you keep internal and external stakeholders updated? If you’re trying to influence and overcome objections, what are the most important things people need to know?

    What do you like to do outside of work?

    Cycling is a huge part of my life. I’m part of a club and race competitively in a number of events. I also cycle to and from work. On my way into the office I plan out my day. How do I make sure I tick off everything I have to do? Coming home I reflect on the day. How’d it go and what can I do better? When I get home my work is truly done and I manage to not take it home with me.

    If you could choose one experience that encapsulates the culture at Auriemma, what would it be?

    The opportunity came for me to move to the New York City office in 2019 and pick up one of the roles on the Partnerships team. When I went to the Leadership Team their biggest concern wasn’t whether I could do the job or anything role-related. It was about my personal life and whether the move would work for me. We decided the best option wasn’t to move but to spend more of my time working with the team in the US and to travel there more often. A lot of companies say it’s about the people but here it really is.

    Jonathan O’Connor

    Manager

    Jonathan joined Auriemma in 2014 after obtaining an MFA in Writing from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). He applied his written and visual communication skills in his role as Industry Roundtables Associate before transitioning to Auriemma’s Research practice in 2016. In his current role, Jonathan translates complex payments data into reports, infographics, and articles. He’s also taken his career to new places as co-manager of the firm’s brand strategy and social media efforts.

    How does your background shape your perspective in your role at Auriemma?

    My background is in writing and graphic design, which informs my approach to data storytelling and visualization. Transitioning to the Research team allowed those skills to shine. My job is to take complex ideas and distill them into messages that will resonate with clients. It’s a unique and exciting challenge to make data come alive for people.

    How have professional relationships influenced your career at Auriemma?

    When I think back to my supervisor relationships here I’ve always felt very supported in where I’ve wanted to take my career, even if it was outside what’s expected of me on paper. In my previous role on the Roundtables team, my supervisor pushed me to get involved in projects that aligned with my skills, even if they weren’t part of my day-to-day. She also supported and advocated for me in my transition to the Research team. The people here really care for their co-workers and want to see them succeed. If you express an interest in something outside your job role they’ll remember and turn to you when something comes up. It’s a huge positive.

    Talk about the people at Auriemma.

    When I come to work I look forward to seeing my co-workers. There’s a certain atmosphere here that’s very welcoming. It’s a place I like to work. Having people you trust, get along with, and who support you in your career – that’s important in any company and we have a good mix of it here.

    What do you like to do outside of work?

    I’ve been swimming competitively for 25 years and recently made the transition from the pool to open water. Currently, I’m training to swim the 28 miles around Manhattan. Fun fact: I still swim at the beach in the winter. Snow, sleet, whatever!

    Nicole Toussaint

    Senior Associate

    Nicole spent three years teaching English in Vietnam before a friend referred her to Auriemma Group in 2017. After learning more, Nicole saw many parallels between the Industry Roundtables model and her background in teaching and decided to make the transition. During her time at Auriemma, Nicole has carved out a niche in customer service-related roundtables and leveraged her teaching skills to take on new responsibilities like training new hires.

    How does your background shape your perspective in your role at Auriemma?

    Before this I was teaching English in Vietnam to children and adults of all ages. That plays into this role in a number of ways, especially training new employees and developing assignments for them. In the future I’d like to use my teaching skills to facilitate roundtable meetings. Teaching taught me patience and organization, and living overseas made me very comfortable interacting with people in different environments.

    How have professional relationships influenced your career at Auriemma?

    The first example is my peers, helping each other out during busy periods and really leveraging each other. The people here are super approachable and I always feel comfortable asking questions when I need help. The second example is Kathy, my supervisor, who’s become a mentor to me. I really look up to her and she’s helped shape me in a lot of ways.

    Describe your role in the training process. What have you learned from that experience?

    Training new hires has taught me how to trust in my coworkers’ abilities. I’m always impressed with how capable they are. I’ve also learned how to give constructive feedback.

    How do you like to unwind after work? What do you enjoy outside of work?

    Spending time with friends and family is important to me. I’m also a big foodie and like to try new restaurants constantly. Sports-wise, I run, I ski, and I golf. I travel a lot too. I recently went to Colombia, Nova Scotia, Sri Lanka, and Myanmar and I’m planning a trip back to Vietnam soon.

    If you could choose one experience that encapsulates the culture at Auriemma, what would it be?

    Travelling with my co-workers. There’s one experience that stands out and shows the culture of collaboration at Auriemma. My coworkers and I were in San Antonio and took over the entire hotel lobby working to get everything ready for a roundtable meeting. Once we got everything done we went to the Alamo together, rented Lime scooters, and rode them to dinner at a Mexican restaurant.
