The Bay Area attracts the best and the brightest from all over the world, which makes for a most fascinating and dynamic region. But if you look around, you'll also find plenty of locals who have hitched their wagons to the ever-changing technology behemoth we call Silicon Valley. One of these locals is FindLaw's own Patrick Kennedy, Technology Manager for the Audience Team in Sunnyvale. Kennedy, who started at FindLaw in April, comes to us from one of the Valley's original tech innovators, Hewlett-Packard.
He has always worked in information technology, but really enjoys the business side of things. In his new position at FindLaw, he'll get to straddle those two worlds as he manages product strategies from a technology perspective.
"What brought me to FindLaw was the opportunity to get back to management," Kennedy explained. "I enjoy helping develop people's skills. It's a nice reward to see people [under your management] do well."
