    Hello All, Its the other Jesse here and I am delighted to help kick off this thread!

    On the personal side I was raised in Austin, TX and also spent my early adult years there, and attended St Edwards University where I received a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. Austin has changed over the years! It was a small town of 300,000 or so when I was growing up and there were no tollways, and it was most famous for Austin City Limits which was a television show featuring live music performances (not the giant music festival most now know). Also, there was no SXSW only Aquafest, a beloved annual August celebration that Austin still had water late in the hot summer, and featuring a uniquely Austin mix of entertainment and live music.

    I moved to Chicago in 2004 after meeting my wife Rachna; we now have 3 pre-teen children so things are getting very interesting at home! When I've got the luxury of "me" time I enjoy reading (non-fiction, some WWII, lot of self-improvement, some historical, biographies), small home improvement jobs, working on the cars (I've been a "shade tree mechanic" since my teen years), shooting pool in a local league and painting. I'm an eclectic guy :-)

    Circling back to business I've worked for Ulta Beauty for more than 7 years with the majority of that time supporting the digital channel. I started with Ulta as an IT Project Manager, and now run the application development team for E-Commerce. Ulta is based in Bolingbrook, IL, outside Chicago and we live in Naperville just next to Bolingbrook and a short 15 minute commute away from the corporate office. Prior to Ulta I worked in a variety of roles at BP plc, Deloitte and Touche, Dell, and a few startups back in the "dotcom" days.

    I truly enjoy people (though believe it or not I am an introvert), imagining the future of technology and society, and working together with like-minded people to transform the constant change inherent in our world into opportunities to make life better. These core elements of who I am are the reasons I am a part of PipelinePros.

    Hello everyone,

    This is Asheesh, I am VP of Operations at Sterlite.  We are a boutique consulting firm focusing on Oracle Commerce/ATG Web Commerce and Oracle Cloud Commerce.  We pride ourselves on innovation in the Oracle Commerce space, with several unique solutions that have saved our clients a great deal of time, effort and dollars.

    My job duties include building client relationships as well as ensuring that all is running smoothly in the office.

    On a personal note, my wife Shiva and I have been married for 16 years, and have three amazing boys, ages 9, 7 and 4.  We were both born and raised in Chicago and love being here, despite the less than hospitable weather at times.  In my free time I like doing projects around the house, playing sports with the boys, and catching up on the latest tech (smart home automation, etc).  I have always loved cars, and from time to time love working on them as well (there is no such thing as too much power).  I also play guitar when no one is watching.  Although we used to live in the city growing up and before kids, I am now completely fine with the peace and quiet of the suburbs.

    I have enjoyed being a part of Pipeline Pros thus far, and am looking forward to the great things that are coming in 2018 and beyond.  We can all grow and benefit together through knowledge sharing and this is exactly what Pipeline Pros enables all of us to do!

    Thanks!
