In 2019, Nexight enjoyed another record-setting year. We again set high marks for:
- Number of clients served
- New business won
- Multi-year contracts initiated
We also added nine new colleagues, building greater capabilities and capacities to better serve our clients. As we enter our tenth year, Nexight is stronger than ever and poised for more success in 2020.
Stellar People Drive Nexight’s Success
No company succeeds without stellar people, and stellar people deserve recognition. That’s why I am pleased to announce three promotions at Nexight.
Annie Best – Consultant
Annie has played an essential role in heightening the visual quality of Nexight’s products since she joined the company in 2014. Her comprehensive understanding of design principles, thoughtful approaches to the visualization of complex data and concepts, and willingness to push creative boundaries in alignment with client style guides have enabled Nexight to deliver fresh, modern-looking products that clearly communicate key messages and stand out among our competitors.
Annie has become a recognized visualization expert among our clients and team members, who regularly request working with her to think through more impactful ways to present their content. Her leadership and design excellence also earned her an official Letter of Appreciation from the Soft Targets, Crowded Places team at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security last year.
New responsibilities: Annie will continue to broaden Nexight’s graphic design and visualization capabilities and further expand her role as a project manager for our design work.
Mel Anton – Associate
Mel joined Nexight in the fall of 2017 and immediately began delivering value to both government and commercial clients. Her expertise in survey development, qualitative and quantitative research, training, and data visualization has supported the development of high-quality products in critical infrastructure security and resilience, advanced manufacturing, federal grant-making, and regenerative medicine standards development. She takes initiative, proactively approaches challenges, and thoughtfully translates complex information for our customers and their stakeholders.
Mel also led Nexight’s internal training program, Nexight Academy, expanding program curriculum to ensure Nexight staff have the knowledge and skills they need to effectively support and grow our clients.
New responsibilities: Mel will continue to exceed customer expectations and help clients translate their visions and needs into strategic approaches and products.
Stephanie Spaulding – Associate
Since joining the company in 2017, Steph has proven herself to be methodical, organized, and dedicated to providing quality products and services to teammates and clients alike. Her broad set of skills in research, information analysis, facilitation, and communications allow her to strengthen any team she joins in service to clients at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. For the past year, Steph has combined these services to help a public-private-partnership to create their first joint strategic plan focused on improving election security.
Steph has also taken the lead on Nexight’s Section 508 compliance training, which ensures the accessibility of our products.
New responsibilities: Steph will lead teams and projects while continuing to expand her expertise in critical infrastructure topics.
Thank you to Annie, Mel, and Steph for your contributions to Nexight, and congratulations on your well-deserved promotions!
