From the Desk of Derek Drockelman
As the newest member of the ROI Solutions team, I have been thoroughly impressed by the dedication of ROI’s staff and by the amazing work being done by our client partners. The most exciting thing in my first few weeks has been ROI’s special emphasis on client success and partnership, which has become a diminished priority at many larger companies. In my experience if you put the client’s needs first, everything else has a way of working out.
With over 25 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, I hope to contribute meaningfully to the work ROI is doing by coming to understand the business needs of potential client partners and matching them to the appropriate solutions and services. My background in fundraising, consulting and technical work has led to a broader appreciation of the work being done at ROI Solutions and by our client partners every day.
I am joining the ROI Solutions team from my home in the Charleston, SC area. When I am ‘out of the office’, I spend my time reading voraciously, kayaking through the nearby marshes, singing along loudly to 80s synthpop and geeking out over comics and the Legos I appropriate for the home office from my son’s closet. I look forward to working alongside all of you, and continuing to help ROI Solutions support our amazing client partners in their important work.
