Hey everyone! Jordan, Envato’s Community Manager here! I hope you’ll all be so kind as to indulge me for a moment as I have a personal announcement I’d like to make, which is important to me as I’d like to let the entire Envato family know (community and staff) just how much you all have come to mean to me over the past three and a half years.
As some of you may or may not be aware, this is my final week at Envato. I have recently accepted an opportunity to join the team at Tourism Australia to help them out with work they’re doing on various social media platforms along with some other exciting stuff with the aim of helping promote Australia as a tourist destination of choice around the world. Making the decision to leave Envato has been one of the hardest choices I’ve had to make in my professional life, and has not been a step I’ve taken lightly – but I’m confident in the ability of the community team and in the culture that we’ve built at Envato to know that our unique community of people from all cultures and walks of life will be looked after and nurtured moving forwards.
I’ve had the pleasure to interact with and meet a huge range of people at Envato and in the community during my three and a half years working with the company, and I have truly enjoyed every moment of it. I’ve learned more in my time here than I ever could have expected or hoped to, and am so grateful for the insights I’ve gained into the industries we’re involved in – and as a part of that, the insights I’ve gained from getting to know all of those people who are involved with our community. I truly believe that the people with whom I deal with on a daily basis as part of my role as Community Manager are some of the smartest and most creative individuals I have and will ever meet in my life – and I’m not just talking about my co-workers, I’m referring to the people who have really made Envato the company it is today – and those people are you: the wider community who give purpose to everything we do at Envato…
I will truly miss you all.
Our lovely Community Officers, Travis King, Carmen Angerer and Drew Douglass will be covering the work I usually do over the next few months and will be your point of contact (as they have been for quite some time) for community related issues.
I will be keeping a close eye on the Envato community over the coming years, and will be remaining on as part of the team as a community moderator during my spare time, so this isn’t goodbye forever!
To everyone at Envato and in the community, thank you for making my time here the best years of my life. I will be forever grateful! You can keep in touch with me on Twitter if you’re keen. Adios – for now!
