Today’s Lion in the Limelight is Taylor Johnson. Taylor, born and raised in Foxborough, MA, is another one of our local Boston gals (growing up so close to Gillette Stadium, Taylor is obviously a huge Pats fan). Even at only 4 feet 11 inches, Taylor packs a big punch in her sales skills. Taylor is a rising senior at Quinnipiac University, majoring in Marketing, and plays an instrumental “roll” to the University’s Acrobatic and Tumbling team as well as being named to the All-American team.
Early this year, Taylor was contacted by the company VP of Online Sales through Linkedin. Taylor was excited that the company’s senior leadership reached out to her for this opportunity and was immediately interested. When she came to interview she really liked the atmosphere and the energy flowing through the office. The online sales representatives she met with gave off a very positive vibe and she knew it was here that she was going to learn a lot—which she confirmed that she is! Taylor is a rock star on and off the mat. In fact, just this week she closed her first deal with a big name company and we couldn’t be prouder!
Taylor learned here at Lionbridge onDemand that she loves start-up environments. After she completes her five-year MBA program, Taylor tells me how she would love to start and coach her own acrobatic team and learn more about the business side of the athletic world.
Now that we have talked up her sales skills, we mean it when we say she is a killer acrobat. Taylor beat Gold Medal Olympic Gymnast, Aly Raisman, for the title of Level 4 Massachusetts State Champion in 2004. Aside from her acrobatic accomplishments and sales gains, Taylor loves her Netflix and her adorable pup, Mickey. Taylor has been an integral part of the Junior Online Sales team and we’re very lucky to have her.
