With the announcement of Christine “Shimo” Shimasaki’s upcoming retirement and the passing of the torch to her successor, Vail Ross … surely, you have a lot of questions. 

What will Shimo do next? What are some of Vail’s priorities as future managing director of 2Synergize? What will Shimo’s relationship with Simpleview look like in the future? Well in classic Professor Shimo fashion, we have answers.

Chief of Staff Cara Frank sat down with Shimo and Vail for an exclusive video interview that you don’t want to miss (especially if you are part of the Shimo fan club!) Hear what Shimo says she’s most excited about in this season of retirement, how Vail is approaching this transition with the 2Synergize team, and how Simpleview will be along for the ride.
