Kelly Uher

Chief Operating Officer & Group Managing Director - Latin America
As Chief Operating Officer, I am responsible for overlapping our strategic direction with our core operations balancing demand, supply, delivery and operations to meet our business performance expectations.  Lead our country Heads of Operations to continuously evolve and improve efficiency of our operations enabling scaling of our complex and wide reaching business.

Since joining ThoughtWorks in 2006, I have held several operational roles from Head of Finance and Operations across the Americas to Head of Global Business Operations.  I am one of those oddballs that love to absorb themselves in what numbers and business trends mean.  Even more so, I have great passion in integrating new business models, go-to-market strategies into our core business and pushing the bar to what is possible.  I have been lucky to find a place here that allows me to have the synergy of my passions.

The Interview

The thing I love most about my work is

Through dynamic shifts in the role technology to businesses, new opportunities emerge on a continuous basis that brings hard complex operational challenges to take advantage of the opportunities and scale the business in myriad of ways

With ThoughtWorks, I've visited

I've had the opportunity to touch all the continents learning how societies operate and work and completely change my perceptions on how talented, motivated and skilled people are across the world and learn first hand how business is changing rapidly across different markets and regions. 

The best advice I can give a current or future ThoughtWorker is

Be open, engaged and embrace what you can learn whether it be your trade, political or social movements.  You will be exposed to opportunities that will broaden and push your boundaries of understanding around technology, societies and how you can make a difference
