Cindy Lackow (previously Gavelek) began working with CRM systems in 1989, becoming first an avid user and then a consultant in the years since. With a varied background that includes many disciplines – sales, marketing, business development, management, adult learning and training – Cindy came to Fíonta to help them grow their Salesforce business in 2013. Assuming many roles with Fíonta over the years, Cindy is now focused primarily on Salesforce and Pardot consulting and training. She says that ‘it’s incredibly rewarding working with nonprofits to help them achieve their missions.’
In her free time, Cindy can be found swimming, hiking, kayaking, gardening, listening to live music, and spending most of her time outdoors either in the mountains, at the beach ,or out and about in the Metro DC area. She loves animals and has cared for a menagerie at times; currently, one cat gets all her attention. Cindy fostered children from 2006 – 2011; more recently, she has been helping with food prep for the homeless at DC Central Kitchen and the Hypothermia Project in Vienna, VA, works seasonally to deliver holiday gifts to local families in need and donates blood and platelets to the American Red Cross.
