    Meet a Fairygodboss at T-Mobile

    • Name

      Missy Roque

    • Position

      Sr. Major Account Executive

      Washington D.C.

    Ask what the keys to a successful sales career are, and Missy will tell you that it’s all about hard work and relationship building. It’s also about facing challenges head on – especially the tough ones. She’s done a lot of that since she joined T-Mobile in 2004 as a B2B specialist bringing wireless solutions to large companies.

    A lifelong Floridian at heart (and a proud Florida State University grad), Missy had just moved with her husband Tony from Miami to Nashville, and she quickly went to work, building a roster of loyal T-Mobile clients. Back then, the wireless industry was in a state of rapid change, and T-Mobile was at the center of it.

    Missy’s journey with T-Mobile has seen her take on a lot of challenges, but in 2007, she faced the greatest one of her life: she was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. As a mother of a then two-year old child, she was looking at six months of chemotherapy and an uncertain future. She was at her lowest point, and she saw her company step up and support her in ways she never expected.

    Ten years later, Missy isn’t just a cancer survivor. She’s an award-winning sales achiever, having earned numerous awards for top performance through the years, including #1 Senior Major Account Executive in the nation in Q416. She’s also been nominated for 2017 Business Woman of the Year by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. With the level of dedication she brings to every customer, and her growing list of sales achievements, we’re not surprised. Way to deliver, Missy!

    Meet a Fairygodboss at T-Mobile

    • Name

      Grace Chu

    • Position

      Sr. Manager Software Development

      Seattle, WA

    At the beginning of her career, Grace had graduated from UCLA, where she studied Mathematics, Computer Science and Business Administration, and was working as a management consultant for a number of big clients. As a consultant, Grace worked to understand a client’s current state, assess what was working and what wasn’t, and then make strategic recommendations.

    She was working to implement a Project Portfolio Management system with another client at the time when T-Mobile’s IT leadership was looking for someone with similar experience. Grace was recruited to come in and lead the implementation as an outside consultant. Business priorities shifted as market conditions changed, but her team consistently delivered on their commitments. She ended up spending three years growing the user base from less than 50 to 3,000 users across multiple departments while enabling new features and capabilities.

    Today, she works extensively with leadership in what she calls “enabling technologies and implementation standards.” That means focusing on high-level strategy, looking at where IT is now, and envisioning what we need to do to enable T-Mobile to transition into a digital company.

    Meet a Fairygodboss at T-Mobile

    • Name

      Lamettress Fields

    • Position

      Retail Sales Associate

      Opelika, AL

    After eight years of Army deployments as a supply sergeant and then five years of nursing, Lamettress decided she wanted fewer 12-hours hospital shifts and more quality time with her family. Which is why she made a life-changing decision to strike out on a new adventure as Associate Sales Rep at the T-Mobile store in West Point, Alabama.

    With a husband and three sons, she was more than a little apprehensive about leaving the security of a nursing career for something entirely new. But her interviewer, who would later become her manager, said the magic words. “At T-Mobile, you can create your own destiny.” In the Army, she was used to figuring things out for herself. After worry, prayer and some long talks with her husband, Lamettress decided she could probably figure things out at T-Mobile, too.

    Life had prepared Lamettress well for T-Mobile. The Army taught her loyalty and organization. Nursing taught her patience. Both experiences taught her the importance of understanding other people, because “they don’t all think like you.” And that’s what makes a great sales professional. “I don’t push people into buying things,” she says. Rather, she listens to each customer and assembles a set of products that fits into their life. And finally, she always puts the customer first. “They want to feel like the most important person in store. And they are.”
