AndAdam Gill - Founder of cirrus.red who am I?

Hi there, Adam Gill here and I’m the Founder of cirrus.red.

In 2011 I was working in an eBusiness role at a large Australian insurer.  The role focused on helping intermediary partners get insurance policies setup via the eBusiness channel.   The system was a custom-built app and nothing to do with Salesforce.

By chance I sat opposite the Salesforce Administrator.  After helping out the Admin a couple of times I got a tiny taste of Salesforce.  Nothing exciting but I learned how to search for an account/contact.  But I volunteered my services when a key Salesforce project was being planned

That project showed me the potential of  Salesforce.  And I was hooked!  Importantly it also gave me the opportunity to work with the team responsible for driving Salesforce process and adoption.  Once that door was open, I worked towards joining the team officially…

Fast forward a few years 🙂  I have now gained exposure across multiple instances of Salesforce, across a variety of industries.  During that time I have held roles ranging from Salesforce Admin, Analyst, Developer, Applications Manager & most recently a CRM Manager.

My core drive is to support businesses increase adoption of the platform.  By focusing on implementation, process improvement and user training/support.

I also love expanding my knowledge of the Salesforce ecosystem.  And am focused on obtaining relevant certifications.  As a result I currently hold certifications for Administrator, Advanced Administrator, Force.com Developer & Sales Cloud Consultant.
