Beth Thomas Quebit

Beth Thomas

SVP, Services Delivery

I have the unique perspective of seeing QueBIT from both sides: First as a client (at ADP) and now as a consultant. As General Manager & Vice President, FOPM it is my job to improve the quality of life in each one of our client’s business environments, to put them in a position to make better decisions for their business. The teamwork and the culture at QueBIT support my role and have really empowered me to grow as a professional and a person.

In the consulting business, you have to be prepared for anything. I feel like that mindset really pushes me to keep the many technology options in front of me when I am engaged with a client. Having business administration, accounting, and finance training (Northeastern University) helps me quickly understand our client’s requirements and goals, then map them to the best technology solution.
