Get to know a Panda: Ken Serembus
What’s one of your superpowers?
One of my many superpowers is being a “Girl Dad.” I’ve had the pleasure of raising three wonderful daughters. Being the only boy in our family, I like to think that my sisters had a hand in grooming me for this superpower.
What’s something people would be surprised to know about you?
I had a near death “out of body” experience once. Pretty wild, not ready to repeat this experience any time soon!
What was one of your first jobs?
I started a lawn cutting business and paper route at the age of 11 or 12. But my favorite job as a kid was when I worked for a catering company that provided catering to the Philadelphia Eagles. During football season, I would go to all of the home games and run around supplying the luxury boxes with food and drink. As a diehard Eagles fan, I couldn’t believe I got paid to do this.
You’ve been at BigPanda for some time. Do you have a favorite memory working here?
To be honest, there’s so many. The one that sticks out to me is when I organized a customer event in Las Vegas at a shooting range. We had a chance to shoot all sorts of guns. We had such a great time especially when we shot the 50 cal!
What do you love about BigPanda?
Hands down: the people and the culture. I get to wake up every day and work with some of the most talented people I have ever worked with in my career, in an environment where we strive for excellence in everything we do. It’s awesome!
How do you describe what you do to your friends or family?
I’m in software sales and responsible for ensuring that our customers and prospects understand our technology and the value it delivers to their organizations.
How do you explain what BigPanda does?
BigPanda helps IT Operations teams in the smallest to the largest companies become more efficient and effective in resolving IT related issues faster than ever before by leveraging the cutting-edge technology. Time is money!
