Thank you to the ServiceNow team (Tracy McGee, Kim Fuller, Harold Hessler, Remi Sorenson, Rebecca McGowan, and Tatiana Tabish) for all of your cooperation and hard work in our recent project with you. Your insight, capabilities, and hard work were on point and very much appreciated. It was a pleasure for the IAM team to work with you.

Thank you to the StratComm team (Jesse Drake, Larrisa Turner, and Cassandra Van Buren) for all of your help in communicating our recent projects and efforts. Knowing that you're there and will ensure that the communication piece goes well takes a lot of the stress out of making a change happen and significantly increases our ability to satisfy our customers. Thank you for all that you do for us!
