Hey Divi Nation, welcome back to another episode of our weekly show. This is a special episode as we’re featuring another one of our very own staff members, Mitch Skolnik. Mitch is our Operations Director here at Elegant Themes and he’s been an integral part of the company for many years now. He was one of the earliest hires and has overseen the practical “nuts and bolts” aspects of our growth–overhauling our company communication, creating hiring practices, setting up and managing new teams, and so on. He’s a guy who thinks in systems and solutions and if you’re growing your own company right now, you might just want to get yourself a Mitch Skolnik.
