Wendy Shlensky has been working in the Industry Analyst world since 2002. She started working at Giga Information Group which was acquired by Forrester Research.
At Forrester, she worked with both enterprise and vendor clients. Forrester’s vertical focus allowed her to upsell into one of her clients, creating more value and stickiness.
Wendy leveraged that knowledge to become Cognizant’s first dedicated Analyst Relations Professional.
She joined Infosys as an independent contributor, collaborated as a key member of the Analyst Relations function to create an Analyst Relations Center of Excellence, working across business units to share best practices and foster excellence in communication across verticals and horizontals. When she left Infosys, she was a manager of 10 Analyst Relations Professionals.
Wendy joined HGS to create their Industry Analyst & Advisor function. In the second week on the job, she was tasked with managing the first ever Gartner Magic Quadrant submission. Fast forward 6 years and she project managed HGS first leadership position in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Customer Service BPO.
Wendy enjoys building programs. She likes starting with a blank slate, collaborating with clients to strategize company differentiators, creating and executing a plan for success.
