WHY THAT IMAGE?

We've created our own company conference called Atomic Con. Atomic Con is an intra-AO technical conference, focused on providing a wide range of speaking opportunities, cross-office socializing, and global scale awesomeness for all Atoms. This photo is from our second Atomic Con instance. Atomic Con 3 is scheduled for November 2017.

SHAWN CROWLEY, VICE PRESIDENT AND MANAGING PARTNER OF GRAND RAPIDS OFFICE 

What is your role and what do you do in the organization?

I have been at Atomic Object for 12 years. Currently 80% of my time is co-managing Atomic's Grand Rapids office (P&L responsibility, working in sales, resource planning, HR, etc) and 20% working on company-wide initiatives.

What are you most looking forward to in 2017?

Continued functional structure refinement at office and company levels. Continued growth and refinement of our career accelerator program we launched in 2015.

What was your favorite course in school that has nothing to do with your profession?

Too hard to pick a favorite. I believe a healthy liberal arts education collectively influences what I do today. Some courses that stand out are psychology, social problems, non-verbal communication, photography and film.
