Armand Doche

Consultant  |  SEI Phoenix

Why SEI? What keeps you here?

The SEI model brought me here and the culture keeps me here.  Nowhere else offers me the work-life balance, local clients, and employee ownership, but that’s secondary to the people. The collaboration and support between peers, not only within Phoenix, but companywide is something I’ve heard about but never seen until joining SEI Phoenix. I know there are over 250 consultants all over the country that I can call on for anything from business questions to where to stay in Costa Rica.

What are your business and technical skills?

25+ years with data; design, development, and implementation in Data Warehousing, Business Intelligence, Database, and ETL tools

What is your favorite SEI moment or event?

It’s hard to pick just one. We are always getting together for summer picnics, charitable events like Special Olympics or volunteering at the local food bank. Plus, our holiday parties are always epic! But I’d have to say it’s not so much a single event or moment, but having the opportunity to experience the growth of the Phoenix office from a small team of 4 holding staff meetings around a kitchen table to where we are today.

What are your interests outside of work?

Traveling with family and friends. Being an “empty nester” now, my wife and I enjoy meeting up with the kids on the beach or in the mountains skiing. Also enjoy golf, fly-fishing, classic cars and firing up the backyard grill.
