From Object to Success: Celebrating Object First`s Inception

Posted By:

Tony Liau,

VP Product Marketing

It’s been a whirlwind year, and I’m excited to share my reflections on the extraordinary growth that we’ve experienced, and the amazing culture we’ve built together. 

One of the highlights of this year was witnessing the metamorphosis of Object First, as we grew from being a dream to create the best storage for Veeam to an enthralling symphony of 100 passionate professionals. It’s been a joy to see the seeds of an idea blossom into a full-grown garden, with each employee adding their unique color and fragrance. From the very first hire to our latest addition, every new face has contributed to the richness of our tapestry. 

One of the pillars of Object First is valuing opinions and contributions from every level of our company. We understand that greatness lies in diversity, and we actively foster an environment where everyone’s voice can be heard. From our ambitious interns brimming with fresh ideas to our seasoned CEO who guides us with wisdom and clarity — we know that our collective insights are the driving force behind our innovation and success. 

Our culture of trust has been a cornerstone in our growth. At Object First, we’ve created an environment where everyone is encouraged to bring their whole authentic self to work. There’s no pressure to put on a façade. Instead, we embrace the unique experiences, backgrounds, and perspectives that each one of us brings to the table. 

Our transparent culture also extends to our decision-making processes. We’ve fostered an environment where data, insights, and the reasoning behind our decisions are shared openly. This empowers every individual to contribute meaningfully and be invested in the direction we’re heading. 

Looking back at this incredible year, I feel deeply privileged to be part of Object First. The growth we’ve experienced is a testament to the values we uphold and the culture we have nurtured. Together, we’re more than the sum of our parts. As we forge ahead, I’m eager to see what new heights we can reach as a united and dynamic team. 

Here’s to many more years of growth, innovation, and being true to ourselves at Object First! 


Lauren Greenfield,

Customer & Partner Success Manager  

Upon graduating college, I started full-time as one of the first US employees at Object First and was a sponge – absorbing as much information as possible. 

From the start, the leadership at Object First granted me a great amount of trust and responsibility, which, unfortunately, is uncommon for employees of my age. Lucky for me, their trust at an early stage has allowed me to excel and grow tremendously both personally and professionally. 

I feel grateful to be a part of the development of the product, message, and people at Object First as we continue to grow the inner mechanics of the company from the ground up. 

Object First truly values disrupting the industry to bring innovation and change in terms of the product and more importantly, its people. Over the past 18 months, I have worn many hats and have had the guidance of amazing leaders and mentors, which has created such a special environment for me to blossom. 

I am a great example of how this company is invested in pouring time and effort into young professionals and their personal/professional development too – and I am not the only one! It is empowering to be a part of a team where you are seen, heard, and valued. 

Object First would not be what it is today without the people. As we continue to grow, I am looking forward to continuing to learn from, and pour into, our diverse and incredible Object First employees.
