Brittany has been a member of the team since 2014 when she joined the Accounting Team. She previously worked in accounting at a car dealership when she was seeking a different opportunity. Brittany found Fastmore while looking for a smaller company that trusted employees to work autonomously. She currently is a member of both accounting and marketing, which she enjoys because it allows her to utilize her past work experience and her college education. Brittany’s favorite thing about Fastmore is the feeling that your choices and your voice can make a difference.
Chris joined the Fastmore team in 2012. Before finding Fastmore, Chris worked in banking and was attempting to work his way up the ladder, finding that many of the banking jobs were not challenging enough. During an interview for a position he was overqualified for, the interviewer mentioned the branch worked with Fastmore and knew they had an open Accounting position. Chris joined the team shortly after and found the challenge he was seeking. Chris most enjoys the people and technological advances at Fastmore.
