Vicki is an amazing technology leader and is currently a strategic engagement manager at Akamai. I worked with Vicki almost 15 years ago at EarthLink when we helped build out municipal wireless networks for various cities. She has that rare combination of deep technical knowledge with keen business sense. I enjoyed hearing about her life journey starting in Uzbekistan to her present location in Atlanta. She walked me through her progression from programmer right out of college to online product manager to strategic leader. Vicki also shared some of her secrets to success, including continual learning, being bold in trying to approaches to solutions, and remaining customer focused. I could have talked with Vicki for hours but I hope you enjoy this first session with her!You can learn more about Vicki on LinkedIn.
