Our Support teams, encompassing Administrative, Sales, Development, Finance, Human Resources and IT, are the unsung heroes who work diligently behind the scenes to keep our Impacters organized and successful. They are the efficiency maestros, the innovators of new ideas, the trainers and mentors, and the gears that ensure everything runs like a well-oiled machine. Balancing both tactical and strategic aspects, our Support teams play a pivotal role and exemplify our mission to be a guiding light for our readers, customers, partners and one another.

Kristin Fortie

Sales Support Manager

Kristin Fortie's story

My name is Kristin Fortie, and I am the Sales Support Manager leading our sales support specialist team to help guide and support our sales team each day. In my personal time, I love to travel with my husband and hang out with my miniature schnauzer, Ava.

What is one of your strengths and how do you use it at CI?

My No. 1 strength is Achiever, which sometimes gets me in trouble on a personal level as I try to get as much done as I possibly can—always. But I really lean into my Deliberative strength—No. 3—when I am needing to find focus, and determine where to dedicate my time and energy to achieve all that I need to for the best possible outcome.

What is your favorite project you worked on while at CI?

Anytime that I get to help develop a new product or process, I love getting to work with our Development Team and brilliant leaders across CI. I love process improvement and finding ways to make our jobs not only easier, but better.
