Director of Operations & Finance
Without Andrea Positano, there simply would be no company. As the pulse of the organization, Andrea has been the right hand to Leslie Ehm since 2007.
Resident ‘Detective’, holder of degrees in Psychology, HR, as well an Executive Master’s in HR Management, she is literally the steady ship in the Combustion storm.
Originally hired as an EA and Training Coordinator, Andrea relentlessly pursued growth – both within her role and for the company. She attained her Executive Master’s while working full-time and soon became the voice of reason, process and (often) sanity within a continually chaotic environment. Always there to provide insight and perspective on people, learning, and development, Andrea soon went from being simply awesome to totally indispensable as Director of Operations.
While building her expertise in learning strategies and managing all of Combustion's awesome follow on learning programs, Andrea yet again proved to be such an indispensable (duh) and multi-tasking bad ass that we simply had no choice but to make her Director of Operations. Because anyone who knows Andrea knows that she is Combustion's true secret weapon.
Be in awe people. Be in awe.
