Employee Spotlight: Meet Steve, Shayna, & David
Steve Doud, Vice President of Sales for Jitasa
As the Vice President of Sales, Steve manages the team that works with prospective clients to identify their needs and develop solutions that answer their accounting and finance challenges. Steve is admired around Jitasa for his amazing leadership skills. Whether this comes from working extensively on the sales teams of fortune 500 companies, or the skills acquired living in a household with a 1:3 male to female ratio, we're not sure.
Steve gives back to the community by volunteering and acting as a board member to several local nonprofits, charities, and his family church. Outside of the office he tries to relax with friends and his family, which includes his wife of 29 years, and his two adult daughters. He also enjoys camping and hiking in the mountains. He is also an avid cyclist, so much so that he bikes to work every day no matter the weather. As such, he finds a great deal of happiness mountain biking and road cycling as much as possible.
