Back in April 2003, I was searching for the perfect place to utilize my many years of accounting skills. Just as I thought I would never find the right match, an accounting placement agency contacted me. A meeting was arranged and my life changed when I was introduced to Frank Toledano, entrepreneur, owner and CEO of Tiger, to discuss the possibility of an open Controller position. Can I say it was just FABULOUS?!!
During our time together, I understood immediately that Frank had a dramatically different approach and ideas for creating, operating and growing a business. The excitement within me grew and if you know me it can sometimes be hard to contain. Tiger delivered beautiful leather hides at a very competitive price, "I understood immediately that Frank had a dramatically different approach and ideas for creating, operating and growing a business" and inventoried many core products all of which enhanced customer satisfaction. Once again I am thinking “FABULOUS”! Could these maybe be turned into some shoes or purses? Well, not for now; however, it definitely evolves into beautiful pieces for our customers. I am an advocate of high class fashion, so this all sounded good! As Frank continued on, he also discussed his aspiration to have a very positive work environment where people worked hard and thought outside the box, and had fun doing it. My mind started racing with ideas; as we could promote a positive learning environment by building employee morale and provide the tools for success. I was a good match for motivating a team and I knew that the position would never get boring; as I enjoy living in the moment and taking it all on full force. Frank was a proponent of constant process improvement which was right up my alley as well…working hard…having fun and improving efficiencies. Having lots of energy, I had the room finally to get it all out and put it to good use. This is exactly where I wanted to be and it felt like home.
Tiger has maintained a consistent eye towards what the customer wants and needs and we strive every day to go beyond expectations. Tiger continues to grow and retain its original ideals: customer satisfaction, a great product and price point, a positive work environment and a great team. All FABULOUS ideals which many companies fall short on and which Tiger is proud to say they have achieved over the years.
