Employee Spotlight – Pru Bikkannavar

Pru in beautiful Venice, Italy!

This month we shine the spotlight on our super awesome, always smiling, travel loving Channel Account Manager – Pru Bikkannavar!

Sandra: How long have you been with Geoforce?

Pru: Just celebrated my first anniversary!

Sandra: What do you do at Geoforce?

Pru: As the Channel Account Manager, my role is a blend of sales, support, and channel program management. I also handle direct sales for EMEA.

Sandra: What are your hobbies?

Pru: I love to travel, especially with our fur babies. My favorite thing is to just hop on a plane to somewhere I’ve never been and make an adventure out of it. On the other hand, I also like all the relaxing things, like reading, walking, yoga, paddle-boarding, napping… I do love naps.

Sandra: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?

Pru: FINALLY! I’ve been prepping for this question for a year now. I really wanted to say “flying”, but I’ll give you a more thoughtful answer. You know that chick, Mantis, from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy? I’d love to have her powers – the ability to sense and change the emotions of others. I would love to be able to help people feel relaxed or happy, or even help them sleep. In my imagination, I also use this superpower to “communicate” with people who speak languages that I don’t.

Sandra: What is your favorite attribute of Geoforce and why?

Pru: Okay, everyone says “culture”, so that’s a given. We do have an excellent company culture at Geoforce! So, my answer will be that the morals and values of Geoforce closely align with my own. I’ve never worked for a company that operates with such integrity and a desire to do right by customers and employees, on all levels. It’s refreshing, and the reason why I’ll do everything I can to contribute to the continued success of this company.

Sandra: What have you gained from working at Geoforce?

Pru: Besides weight? LOL! I’ve also gained an appreciation for technical knowledge – both on the hardware and software side. I really appreciate that everyone at Geoforce helps rookies like me learn more about the “why” and “how” behind our products.

Sandra: What is something you have always wanted to do but never done?

Pru: Go up in a hot air balloon. I love everything to do with heights, and I think a hot air balloon ride sounds so exciting, yet peaceful!
