This week, we travel to our Tangoe office in Courbevoie, France, which is roughly 11 kilometers from the center of Paris.
Caroline Couer, Tangoe’s Project Director, has been with our organization since 2017, though she was part of Anatole going back to 2006. In this candid and informal conversation, Caroline and I discuss what it was like for her to be a part of two acquisitions—once in 2016 and again in 2017. You will also get to hear how the Tangoe offices in Europe are working more closely together every day, and how they’re also integrating more and more with their colleagues in America.
You’ll hear that Caroline is a very warm and thoughtful person, and I enjoyed getting to learn more about her beyond her position with our organization. We even talk books, cuisine, and how to maintain a healthy work-life-balance. In fact, this interview begins with Caroline talking about Europe and how it differs from the United States.
One of the constant themes of this show is the importance of taking the time to learn about your colleagues on a personal level. Our culture is a collection of our people, and our people are a collection of our culture. Remember – this show is for you, the listeners. My hope is that at the end of this episode, you now feel like you now know who Caroline is, beyond a Project Director at Tangoe.

About the Podcast
How does Tangoe—a global organization with over 2,200 employees in 11 countries, who has acquired several organizations throughout its nearly 20-year history—maintain, nurture, or alter its collective company culture? Can it be done? Before answering that, an organization must first discover its culture as it currently exists—without judgement. And that’s precisely what this podcast aims to do. Join us as we rediscover Tangoe’s culture through a series of candid interviews with employees, industry analysts, clients, and more. Learn more about the podcast What is Culture?
