Former Southwest Airlines Chief People Officer and renowned Dallas Executive Jeff Lamb will elevate VARIDESK’s rapidly growing operations.
DALLAS, May 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — VARIDESK® welcomes long-term executive Jeff Lamb to the company as Chief Operating Officer (COO).
With a strong background in operations, facilities and HR, Jeff will oversee the teams charged with turning current and potential customers into lifelong fans. He will also help bring new talent into VARIDESK, equipping the team with tools for growth.
“VARIDESK is growing rapidly. Bringing Jeff in as our COO is a testament to that,” said Jason McCann, co-founder and chief executive officer of VARIDESK. “Jeff brings with him years of industry knowledge and experience scaling businesses – and most importantly, a passion for helping people reach their highest potential. He will be a tremendous asset to our team.”
Jeff has been a leader in corporate America for 37 years – but his first job out of high school was assembling furniture at night for T. Boone Pickens at Mesa Petroleum. He spent 12 years at MESA, growing into a variety of leadership roles.
