PGi’s employees are passionate, creative, driven by innovation and obsessed with providing best-in-class customer care. We attribute our global success to them and they’re often the first thing mentioned when people share why they love working at PGi. We think they’re special and we would like to share some of their positivity and passion with you. In honor of our award-winning employees we have dedicated the month of June to Employee Appreciation. Every Tuesday in June, we’ll post an employee spotlight from one of our 2,100 global associates, the men and women that bring the Collaborative Advantage to life.
This week, meet Pete Lubeski, PGi’s Sales Training Manager located in Atlanta, GA at PGi’s headquarters.
Tell us a little bit about your role here at PGi. I’m the Sales Training Manager supporting GCS and SaaS Sales Teams in the US and Canada. I lead the design, development, and delivery of Sales & Technical training, and I partner with Sales, Marketing, Product, and HR to align their objectives towards our training offerings.
What is your favorite thing about PGi? My favorite part of working for PGi is the culture.
Which core value do you most exemplify? (positivity, responsibility, humility, creativity, sustainability) I think I most exemplify our Core Value of positivity! I’ve always believed that if you can’t have fun at work, you should get another job. Positive leadership, however, is more than making the work place fun. It involves inspiring others to be bold, make decisions, and achieve/reset life goals.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? In my spare time, I like to fly and hike mountain trails in northeast Georgia with my wife, Jennifer. I would love one day to hike the Appalachian Trail and Mt. Kilimanjaro.
If someone were visiting the Atlanta office, where are some must-see spots they should go? My recommendations for first time visitors to Atlanta would include Marietta Diner, Stilesboro Biscuit, watching the Braves at Turner Field and Tallulah Gorge.
What is the most played song on your iPod/phone right now? “Stayin Alive” by the Bee Gees.
