Sampler is excited to announce the promotion of Shonezi Noor to Chief Operations Officer. Shonezi joined Sampler 4 years ago as Sampler’s Operations Manager before quickly being promoted to Chief of Staff. What followed was her involvement in a series of large mission critical projects including re-tooling, process optimizations and the build of key functions like Operations, People Operations, Finance and Legal. Over the last 2 years, Shonezi has been leading these functions and acting as a key member of Sampler’s executive team. In this expanded role, Shonezi’s primary focus will be to support Sampler’s executive team and the CEO in driving the company’s key initiatives by offering the team the support, resources and transparency they need to drive their objectives forward.
“We are so blessed to have Shonezi on our team. She is a natural leader and the best integrator I have ever had the opportunity to work with. Over the last 4 years, she has naturally grown into becoming the glue of our organization; driving key objectives across the organization, supporting me on large initiatives like fundraising and building out systems and processes that make Sampler better and stronger. I’m excited for this expanded role to give her this type of work as a primary mandate and to continue to see Shonezi shine.” said Sampler CEO Marie Chevrier.
Shonezi is not only recognized internally. In fact, Shonezi was also recently acknowledged by The Globe and Mail as one of the Best Executives of 2021. The award celebrates the top people working in the C-suite or at the senior and executive vice-president levels.
“I’m so grateful to Marie, Sampler’s Executive team and Board for their continued trust. Over the past four years, while I’ve been building and scaling Sampler, Sampler has been building and scaling me into a leader. I still pinch myself that I get to wake up every day and come to build alongside an incredibly talented, smart and fun team. With this expanded scope, I have the opportunity to further our culture of excellence for our team, our clients and our partners. This next chapter of Sampler’s growth will no doubt be the most exciting yet and I’m thrilled to be part of it!” said Shonezi Noor.
Please join us in congratulating Shonezi on her new expanded role.
