The Only Thing Inevitable is Change


The Only Thing Inevitable is Change

Todd Swank's Diary Entry for April 10, 2022

Friday was my last day at Stibo Systems. 

It is bittersweet to be leaving the company as it is the pioneer in both product as well as multi-domain master data management. I continue to be amazed by the company’s suite of MDM solutions that create the most flexible and extendable platform to help enterprise organizations master their most valuable data assets. I’m still impressed with the incredible portfolio of customer win stories that Stibo Systems has that would be envied by software vendors in any industry.

I’d like to thank my awesome colleagues who supported me with my own customer win stories some of which were among the best of my career. Finally, I’d like to thank those customers who chose to partner with Stibo Systems after the cycles I led with them. I know our time together has been relatively short, but trust you will all have tremendous success with the choices you made.

I’m happy to share that I’m returning to Oracle as a member of the ISV Ecosystem team. I will be creating partnerships between Oracle and fast growing software vendors. I'm very excited for the new opportunity!

Why ISVs Choose Oracle Cloud

I'm not the only member of the Swank Family making a career change.  Luke was offered a new role as a Financial Analyst at US Bank and starts next week in Downtown Saint Paul.  He had a great run at Wells Fargo and learned a lot, but he's ready to make a change like this.  We are so proud of him!

We went to check out his new building on Saturday and walked along the river for awhile.  Blue would really like to join Luke at his new job, but we have a lot of doubts about that being allowed.  Poor dog.

We've been also waiting for the change in seasons and we're getting pretty close.  The ice is almost gone on Prior Lake.  We're excited to be able to go boating again soon.  

We were looking for someplace to celebrate our new jobs.  The Doublewide in New Market came highly recommended.

We were happy to meet up with the Walters Family.  They're always ready to celebrate with us!

Jackson gave Dan a special new drinking utensil for Christmas and he was excited to bring it out for a test run.  At first I thought it was a tusk of some sort, but they quickly corrected me that it was a long horn off a big ole steer.  I've never drank from a horn mug before, but it looked like a lot of fun.
