Employee Spotlight: Laura Rives

As VP of Sales and Marketing, Laura is responsible for expanding Hannon Hill’s already amazing portfolio of clients. As a thought leader in the field of content marketing, she ensures that the company presents itself in the most authentic way possible.  

Let’s learn a little more about Laura!

How did you first learn about Hannon Hill?

I’ve been working in the technology industry for several years, so I’ve been familiar with our parent company and the building in which we work for some time. I learned about Hannon Hill through online research after finding the company on LinkedIn. When I discovered just how amazing the products and the people are, compounded by the fact that it’s headquartered in the largest technology hub in the southeast, I did everything I could to land a job.

What do you like most about working for Hannon Hill?

There are many things that I love about working here, but most of all I believe in the products. We do a lot with a little and we work very hard to create and support applications that provide organizations with the flexibility they need to optimize their digital presence.

What does true leadership mean to you?

Wow, this one is tough because there are so many qualities and skill sets that a great leader might posses. To boil it down, I’d say a true leader has a unique combination of passion, decisiveness, and delegating and assuming accountability. It’s a certain sense of restlessness and vision, combined with positivity and generosity, that appears in the people I want to work with—and it’s how I strive to be.

What would you do for a career if you weren’t doing this?

When I imagine doing something other than working for Hannon Hill, I picture a boutique advertising agency where I would be super hands on and maintain great relationships with a small number of accounts.

And now for some fun questions!

What is the best vacation you have ever been on?

The best vacation I’ve ever been on actually just concluded. My husband and I recently returned from a week in Italy where we visited both Rome and Florence. We had a blast eating, drinking, and, most importantly, viewing some of the greatest masterpieces of the world.

When are you the happiest?

I am the happiest when I visit my hometown, where my friends and family still live. Christmastime, when we’re all together under one roof, is pretty much impossible to top.

What is an ability that you wish you had?

There are too many abilities that I wish I have, things like being a better athlete or better artist, that I can’t really hone in one one. But I can tell you the superpower I’d like to have—and that’s teleportation. Travelling around the world instantly? That would be amazing!
