Getting to Know the People Behind JustTech
Here at JustTech, we think it’s important for our employees to know how much we value their time, talent, and who they are as people. We had the opportunity to talk with Sarah Costello, Regional Sales Manager for our Winchester, Virginia branch. It was wonderful to get to know Sarah better and we are excited for you to learn more about her, her career responsibilities, and her background, too!
Hi, Sarah! Thanks for chatting with us today. Can you start off by telling us a little about yourself?
I have a wonderful 17-year-old daughter who will be heading off to college in the fall. We have three cats, a dog, and a banana spider python. All of our pets are rescues with the exception of the snake; I love rescue groups!
As far as my professional life, I began my Xerox journey in 1996 as a sales rep for Leesburg Office Equipment. In 2005, I bought the company and ran it until joining the JustTech team in January of this year.
Wow! Sounds exciting! What brought you to JustTech?
I have known and been friends with Josh for many years. In that time, I watched his company and their portfolio grow, all while keeping a friendly small company-feel. I knew it would be a great fit for our customers, staff, and myself for us to join his team.
What a great background story! What are your main responsibilities working here?
I am a regional sales manager, supporting reps in northern Virginia and the panhandle of West Virginia. Am I allowed to brag here about what a wonderful team I support?
Of course, you are! What would you tell a customer who is considering working with JustTech?
I chose this company to become a part of because of the amazing services it provides. Going outside of just the “box” and offering apps we develop to help streamline customers’ workflow and offering full-network solutions. Never have I heard of an IT company that has a 98% retention rate and such satisfying accounts.
That is something we are all very proud of. With that being said, what do you enjoy the most about being a part of the JustTech family?
The team has been so welcoming to all of us who came from Leesburg Office Equipment. The enthusiasm of everyone is contagious.
We’re happy to have you here! When you’re not working, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I guess I am kind of a boring person outside of work. I enjoy pretty much anything when I am hanging out with my daughter or friends. This year I will try skydiving for the first time – yikes!
What a great experience you will have – make sure you get pictures! If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I LOVE traveling! I have too many places still not checked off on my bucket list to name, but my favorite places are warm with amazing local cuisine.
Definitely the right answer. Most importantly though, Ben & Jerry’s, Haagen-Dazs, or something else? Why?
I feel like this could be a trick question. Ha! Haagen-Dazs for Raspberry Sorbet and B&J for Chubby Hubby. Have you tried Tillamook Vanilla Bean, yet? Throw a little Ghirardelli Caramel on there for real magic.
Thanks for talking with us today, Sarah, and for the ice cream insight! If a customer needs to reach you, what is the best way to get in contact with you?
You can always reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or my cell at 571-233-4693. I pride myself on always being available to my customers.
Thanks for helping JustTech become a better place, Sarah! It was great to get to know you better today.
