MEET SOME OF OUR PEOPLE
CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER
Jonathan Smith joined LinguaLinx in 2005. Over the last fifteen years he has overseen the installation and maintenance of our Information Technology infrastructure including server technology, desktop hardware and applications as well as telecommunications. He has taken an active role in managing the day-to-day operations at LinguaLinx since 2013. In January 2015, Jonathan was promoted to Chief Operating Officer with an eye on the growth and direction of the company. IT continues to be a passion of his, both inside and outside of work. Jonathan might have a “Man of Mystery” persona about the office, but he is definitely the most “fit” member of the management team! (Fitness is a big hobby and part of his life.)
DIRECTOR OF SALES
Relationships matter, and Bryan’s mission is helping clients see LinguaLinx as a trusted partner in translation services. The former college athlete uses his youth coaching skills and previous sales leadership experience to fuel the company’s accelerated growth. Through his investments in People, Process and Partnerships, Bryan looks to lead LinguaLinx to unprecedented success. Born and raised in Troy, NY, he loves living a few miles from the company’s office situated on the scenic Hudson River. On weekends you can find him out at the lake with his family, at a ball game, or keeping his front grass in tip top condition.
DIRECTOR OF COMPANY STRATEGY AND FINANCE
As the Director of Company Strategy and Finance, Derek spearheads the strategic direction of LinguaLinx to create positive experiences for clients and employees alike. The database system architecture, it management, leadership building, strategy, and finance expert strives to change the perception that translation services are a commodity because he says, “Translations are not like buying soup in a can from the store; you need to get it right for your message to get through.” On weekends, he enjoys spending time with his daughter and tinkering with projects in his barn.
CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
Charlotte wants job candidates to know, it’s not a requirement to speak multiple languages to succeed at a language service provider. Before leading recruitment, on-boarding and employee relations for LinguaLinx, she worked in the legal field, and for a variety of large and small companies in the private and public sector. She holds a bachelor’s in political science with a minor in business administration from the University of Albany. She’s always wearing great shoes, whether she’s at work or in the kitchen cooking (and sometimes burning) new recipes.
KEY ACCOUNT MANAGER
For more than a decade, Jenn has been helping people and organizations communicate effectively by teaching them the benefits of using a language service provider. She’s on a mission to inform others that going by what “Google translation says,” can result in misunderstandings or misinterpretation because it’s been translated by a machine. Long before online dating was cool, Jenn met her husband in a chatroom 20 years ago. They enjoy spending time outdoors with their son, which gave her an opportunity for a chance meeting with Willie Geist of the “Today Show.”
ASSOCIATE KEY ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE
Enabling a child or their parents to navigate school assignments, documents or forms like their peers feeds Erin’s passion for the industry. She plays an important role in making sure the NYC Department of Education has translated materials for its students. Before joining LinguaLinx, Erin worked at the International Education Center at the University at Albany. While in college, she traveled to Ecuador for an environmental exchange trip and studied abroad in Malaga, Spain. When she’s not working, this country music fan aspires to start a small farm.
SENIOR CLIENT RELATIONSHIP EXECUTIVE
Empowering people to connect when they may not have otherwise had the ability is Colleen’s number one goal. Before joining LinguaLinx, she worked in athletic communications performing media relations, website management, social media, statistics, game-day operations and graphic design duties. She is happiest when she’s singing and if she had one superpower it would be the ability to teleport—that would make it easier to accomplish her goal of visiting all 50 states and every continent.
CLIENT RELATIONSHIP MANAGER
With almost a decade of Translation Services under her belt, our Client Relations Manager, Kayleigh Gratton, not only talks the talk, but walks the walk. Kayleigh leads the team of Client Relations Executives with tactful, knowledge-based problem solving and solutions expertise. Like her favorite animal the giraffe, she is always willing to stick her neck out for her clients and team members, never losing her cool when tight schedules and tricky projects arise. When asked what she wishes her superpower could be, she says she’d like to fly like bird, but as far as we’re concerned, she’s already soaring. When she’s not flying high here at work you can find her with her son enjoying all the seasonal fun Upstate NY has to offer, kicking up her heels with friends at a country music festival or curled up on the couch with a hot cup of coffee and a favorite true crime TV show.
CLIENT RELATIONSHIP EXECUTIVE
Connecting millions of non-English speakers with the knowledge they need to stay safe and healthy inspires Nick daily. As a graduate of Siena College where he played lacrosse, Nick started his career as a salesperson in an unrelated industry. As an associate client relationship executive at LinguaLinx, he strives to raise awareness about the high need for translation and localization services among major corporations. He lives by the motto, “Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.”
With a degree in Electronic Media Arts and Communication, Lilly’s experience in the health care and marketing industries has helped her hone a sharp eye for detail and organization while maintaining a laser focus on executing the client’s vision at the highest quality possible. A nerd at heart, she enjoys knitting, cooking, spinning both yarn and cycling in her spare time.
Andrew’s priority is providing clients with an opportunity to live their best life, regardless of the language they are most comfortable speaking or where they are located. As a speaker of six languages (English, Arabic, Serbo-Croatian, Spanish, French, American Sign Language), Andrew has spent his entire professional career in the language service industry. With a bachelor’s degree in Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies, he understands the importance of translation and localization. In his spare time, he is a hobby farmer and is cultivating a mini fruit orchard with blue plum, apple and fig trees.
HUMAN RESOURCES GENERALIST
Morgan thrives on changing people’s lives. Through the hiring process, where she gets to know applicants from their first interview, Morgan follows new employees on through their career at Lingualinx. She joined the company as a student at Siena College where she studied management with a concentration in human resources. Her advice to applicants: “Be yourself in an interview and remember that you’re interviewing us as much as we’re interviewing you.” Morgan counts international travel and early morning walks with her Pomsky as some of her favorite activities.
SENIOR PROJECT MANAGER
Tiffany once heard a motivational speaker say, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with,” and she believes the exceptional LinguaLinx team makes the difference for staff and customers. She has a bachelor’s in Modern Foreign Languages with a concentration in Spanish and Russian. She also has a master’s in Italian and Translation and has put those skills to work in the translation and localization industry for the last decade. Seeing all the natural wonders of the world tops the gym junkie and avid CrossFitter’s bucket list.
Madison says it’s a sweet feeling knowing she has an active role in making information easily accessible and understandable. She joined LinguaLinx after graduating from SUNY Albany where she double-majored in Linguistics and Spanish. She is fluent in Spanish and German and once worked as an English conversation assistant at a high-need public school in Spain. She’s the company’s make up expert, using tips from YouTube beauty influencers. Her Sunday morning ritual includes listening to Etta James and making avocado toast with an espresso on her stovetop.
