Ali Najefi, Salesforce CTA – Meet the Galacticos

Welcome to the latest in our series of Meet the Galacticos blogs to learn more about our growing Cloud Galacticos team. Say ‘hello’ to Ali, one of our Salesforce Certified Technical Architects at our Salesforce consultancy. I caught up with Ali via email to ask him a few questions.

Hi Ali, thanks for finding a few minutes to help people learn a bit more about you. Can you give us a bit of background about yourself and your work history?

I started working in Salesforce back in 2008. There were not many Salesforce consultants around back then. The community was not as big, so sometimes it was difficult to get help. However, it has been a great journey for all of us to see how Salesforce has grown so much!  I started as a developer and progressed to an architect. The greatest accomplishment in my Salesforce journey has to be becoming a Salesforce CTA in early 2019. That’s something I am really proud of.


What’s your story behind joining the Cloud Galacticos team?

I knew Phil for a while and we wanted to work together for sometime. Luckily, the opportunity came and I am very happy to be part of the team.


How is your role as Salesforce CTA at Cloud Galacticos. What do you enjoy about it?

I work as an architect on multiple projects where I advise the clients on Salesforce best practices from design, architecture and development perspectives. That is what I love doing.


Aside from Salesforce and working as a CTA at Cloud Galacticos, what else do you enjoy doing?

I am a football fan and support Liverpool, so that is what I follow when I am not working!


What tips would you have on working remotely during the current Covid-19 situation?

It had been different at the start, but I guess we have also learned how to manage it. I think as long as we can create a work-life balance at home so we don’t end up sitting at home-office working longer hours, working remotely is a good thing. I found working remotely great because I do less travelling and spending more time with my family!
