Grover has been overseeing software development for cloud computing and online services for twenty years. He became an accomplished architect over the course of the last eight. For much of that time, he specialized in complex, highly secure applications for the finance and insurance industries, where he worked with SunTrust Bank, Wells Fargo, Visa and Sovereign Insurance.
When he was first approached by RESULTS, he understood immediately that a business management platform was not only a fascinating challenge, but one that would synthesize many of the functions scattered across today's typical corporate tech stack. He started as an application architect, and hit the ground running. To keep pace with a fast-growing company, his expertise enabled the RESULTS application to handle a 1,000 fold increase in customer demand.
As RESULTS' Chief Technology Officer, Grover now focuses on the technical strategies needed to make sure RESULTS meets the market demands that are evolving as quickly as the business managment platform space.
Early in his career, Jason had the opportunity to work for a business that "got it" from a management point of view. They understood the power of connecting people to purpose. They were able to create a culture of winning, from top to bottom.
The effect was Jason profound. Having seen first hand what a workplace could be like, he has committed his own career to building a rewarding experience of work for businesses and teams around the world.
When he learned about RESULTS, he was immediately interested in the new industry that it was leading. After several years of watching the success of RESULTS from the sidelines, he had an opportunity to join. He immediately set about building a global sales team. He inspired them with the vision of helping thousands of businesses.
They don't sell; they create amazing cultures for teams and employees around the world so they can execute strategy and win.
He's never looked back. "The thing I love most about the difference we are creating for our clients are the comments we get from their employees, about the way our product helps them connect to the work they do and the valuable way they contribute every day."
“I’m here because I’ve experienced the impact of RESULTS on company results and culture first hand. There’s a better way to execute business strategies.”
Simon Small is a champion and pioneer of exponential technologies (where capability is doubling each year) from producing the first broadcasts of interactive television in the UK for Sky, to establishing the business of Diligent (a Top 50 SaaS company) in UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa, to co-founding a Top 10 artificial intelligence company, Arria.
Simon was recently hired by RESULTS as an advisor as the company was gearing up. He now heads up the RESULTS Partner Program throughout Asia Pacific. “We’ve made a strategic shift to enrolling and empowering the global community of business advisors, coaches & consultants as our partners. Our aim is that RESULTS is the number one global standard for consultants to help their clients execute on their strategy and win.”One of the aspects that Simon loves most about RESULTS is the internal weekly All Hands meetings. “We start and finish with such a great connectedness with each other and get the business done along the way in line with our Core Values. In many large and small companies I’ve been part of, never have I experienced this team magic. Clients use RESULTS to run their meetings better, but it is impressive to experience first-hand the power of RESULTS software and methodology being applied in our internal meetings.”
At the outset of her career, Lisa Carter spent five years as the Executive Assistant to the Financial Director of Australia's second largest insurance company.
From there, she moved to London and became fascinated by investment banking. She began at Société General, where she created pitches for bankers who were closing $100 million deals. She next moved to Merrill Lynch where she continued refining collateral for contracts of equal or greater value, and where she became accustomed to hitting extremely demanding deadlines on their Global Marketing Team.
From London, she travelled to fifty-four countries before deciding to start a family.
She began working with RESULTS when it was a consulting business, and has been among the company's leaders for nearly fifteen years. With a deep understanding of finance, entrepreneurship, marketing and business development, she now guides clients to the perfect implementation of RESULTS.com so they, too, can succeed.

His management experience began when he was a sixth grade teacher. When he moved into the world of software, he started as a web programmer for a learning management company.

When the RESULTS opportunity presented itself, he leapt at the chance to join one of the original pioneers of the business management platform.
Fueled by a passionate belief that work and business can be better, Andrew decided he’d join RESULTS.com after attending one of the company's seminars. He was delighted to realize that RESULTS thought leaders saw the business world the way he did, and his passion landed him a position.
Over the six years he has been with the company, he has been at the forefront of client engagement and has become an expert at strategic planning and creating exactly the right goals and metrics to execute that plan. He thrives on the ever-changing challenges that stretch him every day.
Andrew is driven by the visionary phrase hanging on the wall in our Auckland office:
We empower everyone, at every level of a business, to contribute meaningfully towards the company’s success and ultimately their own.

As Director of Partner and Client Engagement, Andrew works with our consulting partners and clients. He coaches them through their strategic planning and shares his expertise in execution methodologies, best practices and KPIs. Ultimately, he and his team ensure that employees, clients, partners and RESULTS all win.
When Maneesh managed training at Hewlett Packard, he oversaw the onboarding of every new employee to work for the conglomerate in New Zealand while simultaneously organizing the outsourcing of certain client operations to Manila. The experience taught him how to integrate new, energetic employees into a functioning whole that spanned several nations.
From there, he moved into a more purely operational role at Freightways Information Services, also in New Zealand, where he directed the implementation of technology solutions that had an immediate impact on customer success.
When the opportunity to work at RESULTS presented itself, Maneesh jumped at it. "Having multinational experience, remote worker experience, and customer success experience gave me a unique insight into what a business could accomplish with the RESULTS platform," he said. "I think this is the future of business, and I'm excited to be a part of a team that's so dedicated to its customers and to their future."
