New Smartsheet Community Managers

Hello Smartsheet Community,


Over the last year, the Smartsheet Community has grown to over 6,200 registered users, 40,000 unique visitors, 3,000 discussions, and 118,000 points have been awarded! Throughout the year I have developed relationships with many of you and watched as some of you became power users - trusted by your fellow Smartsheet users to provide brilliant answers and solutions. Thank you for everything you all have done!


The purpose of this announcement is to let you all know I am moving to another role within Smartsheet and will no longer be the Community Manager. We have selected two of my amazing colleagues - Kate French and Kennedy Stomps - to replace me as the new Community Managers. Kate and Kennedy are both Smartsheet experts as well as great people - you will be in good hands!


I would like to introduce Kate and Kennedy! Here’s a little bit about them in their own words:



Kate is a member of the Support team, with a background in libraries and financial services. Her true calling is anything that involves making someone else's job easier! When she's not working, you can find her either a) on her porch drinking coffee or craft brews, or b) running around in the woods with her 2 dogs.



Kennedy is a Technical Support Specialist at Smartsheet, with a focus on assisting customers in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Outside of work, she loves hiking, playing board games, and enjoying Seattle's excellent vegetarian restaurants.


Thank you for all your support and participation and say ‘Hi’ to your new Community Managers!

    Big shoes to fill, lol! Good luck in your new role, Travis, and thank you for all the help you have provided.


    Ladies, glad to have you with us - I use the Community boards regularly as we always seem to have some weird questions pop up. Looking forward to seeing you here!
