Jaime joined IES, Inc. in May of 2005 and her position has grown from being an Executive Assistant to the owners, Alexandra Putman and Eric Gorman, and eCentre Administrator to now encompass Communications and Marketing as well as Inside Sales and Service Support.
Jaime graduated from Randolph Community College, Class of 1999 – Associate of Science in Interior Design. Soon after she went to work for a startup company in the High Point, NC area known as the furniture capital of the world applying her interior design knowledge to create digital room vignettes and digitally recover photographed furniture with new patterns for catalog production. Shortly thereafter, she began working for a major textile manufacturer while advancing her textile design skills. That position ended up leading her to back to New York where she began working for a company producing the textile drafting and design software in New York City. Looking for a change of pace and a shorter commute, she started working for a local title insurance firm where she was introduced to Alexandra and Eric of Integrated Enterprise Solutions.
Jaime’s role has a variety of layers and she’s able to interact with customers on a sales and customer service basis when she’s assisting the sales and service departments. Jaime also takes the lead in alerting customers about new products, services or technical alerts as part of her role with communications and marketing while trying to highlight the difference in choosing IES, Inc. as your IT partner verses other companies that just handle break/fix IT support.
The Best Thing about Working at IES, Inc.?
My favorite thing about IES is the people who work here. We’re really like an extended family and we can make each other laugh all the time. We all share a common goal of making sure our customers get the best we have to offer and know that we care about them. We lean on each other and definitely do our best to support each other.
What are you listening to, reading or watching lately?
As a Mom of a 4 year old who keeps me on my toes with another child on the way, there’s not much time for reading, but I do enjoy pretty much all the primetime shows on ABC – especially the Thursday night lineup. My favorite radio station to stream at work is Mix 97.7FM and WRWD for the ride home.
Where is Your Dream Vacation Destination?
I have always loved and wanted to visit Hawaii. I’m not sure what it is about that place, but the beautiful landscape created by volcanoes next to the ocean with amazing beaches, it just calls to me.
If you could have a super power, what would it be and why?
I would like the ability to freeze time and objects around me as my super power because on those days where I’m feeling overwhelmed by projects or my personal to-do list and I just need time to focus without any interruptions to get things done, the ability to freeze everything and everyone around me while I work without them realizing that time had temporarily stopped would be pretty handy.
