Tate's Story

Business Area: Information Technology
Degree: Management Information Systems

In 2006, I was called to active duty with my Army National Guard unit.  We were headed to Iraq. That began a year and a half military leave of absence from The Principal.  During my deployment, my co-workers sent me numerous care packages and stayed in touch with e-mails, letters and cards. 

Following my deployment, my leadership team sat down with me to discuss my interests and where I’d like to go next in my career.  I was given the opportunity to try a new role as a business analyst, which was something I had wanted to do.

My greatest accomplishment is simply continuing to improve our computer applications and systems.  As an IT business analyst, I gather the requirements and information from various business partners to define and modify our internal and external reporting systems.  My previous position as an IT application analyst helped me prepare for my current role as a business analyst. That role gave me great exposure to IT and a number of applications and systems – which I use today.   

So many companies can talk about their benefits, people and leadership. But, few can compare to The Principal.  Here, people care about you -- they’re here to help each other and in the process make the company better for customers, financial representatives and employees.
