It takes someone with many talents and interests to successfully direct the operations of a dynamic company like STG. Fortunately, we have the perfect person in Michele Stone. In 1987, after stints as a massage therapist and a certified nurse assistant, which bolstered her passion for helping people, she got into the software game at WordPerfect. In 2002, Michele, along with her husband and her brother, launched her own IT consulting and staffing firm, which quickly grew into a global IT services company. In 2014, not long after selling her company, Michele came to work for STG. Her background in software makes her extremely knowledgeable about the technical aspects of the industry, but Michele is also passionate about the people behind the systems and has built a strong sense of community among her team. She is currently working on a degree in psychology from the University of Utah, which will further her understanding of people and how to best utilize their strengths. Michele believes that a commitment to work/life balance leads to better productiveness at work and greater satisfaction in life. She takes advantage of her time away from the office by spending it with her husband and four children—up on the slopes at Alta or enjoying a vacation at some far-flung location.
