Thank You and Farewell
Dear Focal Pointers,

It is with mixed emotions that I say farewell to Information Builders. I have been with Information Builders for nearly 19 years but the time has come for me to venture out to pursue a new opportunity.

My last day is June 15 and I wanted to send you all a note to say thank you for your continued support over the years. It has been a pleasure to work with amazing customers like you and I hope we cross paths again. I will always have fond memories of Focal Point. I know many of you for my entire career at Information Builders and will always appreciate your contribution, dedication, and knowledge sharing. Please continue to collaborate and support your local User Groups. Thanks for all the fun times we shared at Summit over the years!

I leave you in great hands with the Chuck Wolff who has done a fabulous job moderating Focal Point and extremely knowledgeable about the Information Builders Product Suite.

I wish you success, happiness, and good health.

Feel free to stay in touch on LinkedIn or you can reach me at

Kathleen, a pleasure working with you, both as a customer and a fellow (now ex-) IBIr. Congratulations- I know I do not have to wish you best of luck- the best make their own luck.
