It’s been a busy month at Prism! Our team is growing quickly these days, and bringing on new folks from all around the world. Recently we got to welcome Devon Safran, who joins us from Women’s Wear Daily.
What’s your role at Prism Skylabs?
I am an Account Executive here at Prism Skylabs with a focus on retail clients in the fashion, apparel, and luxury space. In essence, it’s my role to bring our application to clients and show them our amazing product and how they can use it to drive their business.
What are you currently working on?
Right now I have some key accounts that I’m looking to meet with in person, in order to build that one-on-one relationship up with them. I used to be a buyer and heavily involved in the retail industry, so for the most part this stage in the process involves reaching out to people I already know to spread the enthusiasm about Prism and show them how great it is.
What drew you to Prism Skylabs?
Prism has a great product that I wish I had had access to when I was working in the retail space. I had the chance to work with the Prism team previously, so I knew the people here were really sharp, focused and great to be around. Not to mention incredibly innovative! Our product is a game changer for how retailers will be able to see into and run their stores. It is an amazing thing to be a part of. Poncho was also a big draw.
What aspects of your job at Prism Skylabs do you like best?
I really like the people I work with. Since day one, everyone’s been really great, and very open. I think that there’s a lot to learn, and there are plenty of people to learn from, and who are invested in helping each other learn and improve. There are a lot of different personalities, but everyone has a good sense of humor!
What do you like to do outside of work?
I’m an avid equestrian and horses are my passion. People don’t believe me when I tell them I drive a pick up truck!
What’s your background outside of Prism Skylabs?
I started my career off at Ralph Lauren in the Executive Training Program, which gives you a 360-degree view of what’s happening within the company. After completing the one-year program, I moved into buying for various divisions within the organization. After working at companies such as J. Crew and Lilly Pulitzer, I transitioned to sales for Women’s Wear Daily. That’s where I met the Prism Skylabs team and here we are!
