My exciting new job!

As of Wednesday, 13 April 2011 I am officially the United States Service Manager for the New York Stock Exchange! The past three days have been an absolute whirlwind of meeting people and discovering process flow and management. I share a beautiful corner office on the top (29th) floor at 100 Wall St overlooking the East River and Brooklyn with one other person. Check out the view (below) I still can't believe it myself!


My 'NYSE' office!


The down-sides are the pressure that this job will require of me, and the fact that I need to wear a suit and tie everyday in the office. After six years of working from home for IBM, it's a shock to be dressing up again -- especially to the 9's everyday... I need to refresh my wardrobe!

Well, that's the big surprise about my new job.

Sadly, it is an office job (with some business travel), which will put a damper on my working remotely from all over the world... :-(

You're not the first to ask, but I will keep my ear to the ground for appropriate positions.

Just a phrase I've heard about the corporate big guys.

I have not cleared the vacation time with my manager yet. :-( I mentioned the trip, but we didn't have time to discuss it in full.

Are you serious about me bringing a suit?

No, that was just my effort at levity...thus the emoticon after it…Bring yourselves—that's most important.

I thought you were joking -- but something I was unaware of could have prompted you to tell me that. After all, the royal wedding would be the week before-hand.

Well, that week is the official celebration of the Queen's birthday, so perhaps you should both bring your birthday suits... ;-)
