On a personal note—
Belle Verhulst here, Marketing Manager over at SPS. As I’m coming up on my 2.5-year mark with SPS, I thought I’d pull back the curtain to extend a sincere thanks to our clients, and anyone else who appreciates the insights we share. Our team is chock full of diligent, curious people working across every functional area to deliver a quality product. We are grounded in our shared purpose to continuously refine a product that in essence, makes others’ professional lives better. We listen to our clients, implementing any and all product features we believe will benefit them. We ideate, iterate, and sometimes (respectfully) debate about what those could be. Our shared value for perpetual improvement makes SPS a truly inspiring place to work, and we’re immensely grateful to our clients who afford us that opportunity.
Never is our gratitude more deeply felt than when we hear from our clients that we’re hitting our mark. Recently, we updated our website with a fresh batch of new testimonials. It’s an absolute delight to our whole team when clients elect to share their experience with SPS as a value add to their deal sourcing operation. These SPS success stories from the PE community are what keep us going.
