Paul Mudlaff the sales Manager along with the sales department was an amazing group of individuals, they came prepared for fun. The charity arranged to pick up the bikes was the Boys & Girls Club of the greater Austin area. Brian, the Director of operations brought four kids with him but didn’t tell them why they were coming and they were so excited when they saw their new bikes. The sales group was so moved to hear that they had just built the first bikes these kids had ever had. One of the team members suggested giving the kids their first lesson around the room. The group all snacked on cookies, exchanged names, took photos and listened to the kids talk about school, home and their new bikes. “This is wonderful”, “what a great thing we just did”, “I loved this event” were some of the comments made by the sales team of Informatica of Austin.
