Success = Holly
You may have seen the recent announcements on USGNN.com™
about the appointment of Holly Biller to the Women’s Leadership and Networking
Council of the prestigious American Business Media (ABM) group. Well,
there are a few other things I’d like to tell you about our vice president
of digital media services.
That Holly was chosen to be included in this prestigious list of publishing
professionals is no surprise. She is an accomplished professional who
has grown with our company and expanded it to encompass a full digital
offering, including digital editions, monthly video newscasts, e-newsletters
and Android and Apple Apps.
I admire Holly for too many reasons to include here—this would be a nine-page
column if I included them all—but suffice it to say, her “can do” attitude
almost always becomes “success.”
Less than 48 hours after we decided to create an App for the Android and
iPad, Holly had already become an accredited App developer and was working
on the program. She always has a “we can do/fix/find/enhance this” attitude
and almost always succeeds.
We are incredibly lucky to have her combination of strong analytical skills,
dynamic personality and expert people skills working together for our
company. I feel exceedingly lucky that she chose to accept our offer from
among the many others she had when she graduated college and that she
has helped grow Key since that time.
It’s also been my profound pleasure to watch her grow personally, marry
her wonderful husband, Thomas, and now raise two adorable boys, Cameron
and Hudson. The young “Biller Boys” are wonderful to see around the office
when they stop by and it’s a kick watching them grow, too.
The goal of the new council Holly is in is, in part, to provide women
at the beginning of their career with an opportunity to interact, learn
and network with their peers, along with senior and accomplished women
executives. I have no doubt Holly will be an excellent mentor to all with
whom she comes in contact.
The first time I met Holly’s mother, I tried not to show how much in awe
of her daughter I was. After all, she had raised this amazing person who
no one ever forgets once they meet. “So,” I asked her mom, Robin, “what
exactly does one do to raise a Holly?”
“Darned if I know,” her mom replied with a smile.
There’s no formula or magic recipe. That’s just how special Holly is.
