Building your career is not something you simply lay the groundwork for in the beginning and hope it grows naturally. No matter what stage of your career you’re at, you need to nurture it and put the time and effort into growing and developing your skills.
Someone who lives by that is Lee-Ann Perkins, the Assistant Treasurer at Specialized Bicycle Components. Lee-Ann joined the Treasury Career Corner back in 2019, but we’ve dug back into the archive to revisit her fantastic episode. Lee-Ann explains how she has always been driven to learn new things and nurture her career.
Back when the episode first aired, she was the Assistant Treasurer at ION Geophysical. She joins us again in this episode for a catch-up on what she’s been up to since.
Founded in 1974 and headquartered in Morgan Hill, California, Specialized Bicycle Components, Inc., is an American company that designs, manufactures, and markets bicycles, bicycle components, and related products under the brand name "Specialized," as well as the premium and professional-oriented "S-works".
