My name is Zach Tullis and I’m a Solution Engineer at SAP in the Procurement LOB. Our solutions enable the end to end source to pay process in a fully integrated environment. I joined SAP after graduation from Penn State in July 2010. I was a member of the inuagural class of the PreSales Graduate Academy and upon graduation I began my focus in Procurement. I enjoy my job at SAP becuase everyday is different and I’m always meeting new people and visiting new places.
A fun fact about me is that I always say whats on my mind, sometimes to a fault, so this “blogging” thing is going to be quite interesting. I foresee a lot of editing in my future. But if you want an unbiased opinion of yound adult life in Corporate America, you’re going to find it here.
Here we go.
If you could be a super hero (or are in your spare time) who would you be?
This question to me is a no brainer, Batman. It really doesn’t matter what Batman to me. Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, they were all good. I customized my car based on the batmobile. I’m almost there. Who doesn’t want to be a billionaire playboy by day and a crime fighting superhero by night. Did you see Catwoman in the last movie? Holy latex. Looks like a great gig with awesome perks.
What is your personal life dream?
To make a difference. It sounds cheesy but I’m already getting that itch right now. My biggest fear is leaving this Earth without giving something meaningful back, if even just to one person. I would love nothing more than to end my professional career with a teaching gig at a University.
If you were not in your current position, what/where would you be and why?
To be honest I never thought I’d be here in the first place. Don’t get me wrong, I love both SAP and my job. But before this, I worked up West Chester Pike fileting fish at Hill’s Seafood. My passion was working on cars and I thought I was going to be a mechanic. I was fine that with. After a lot of coaching through high school I decided to give college a shot. I worked hard and then SAP took interest in me. The rest is history. I’ve found that my work ethic is my meal ticket.
In keeping the BIF going, I am asking the following questions:
- What was your dream job as a kid?
- What is your favorite place in the world?
- What was the most fun project you ever participated in and why?
