Taylor McDermott

Strategy & Corporate Development at ATG Cognizant

Taylor McDermott was born and raised in rural Montana and has called Missoula her home for the last seven years. She graduated from the University of Montana with a B.S. in Business Administration, Management Information Systems with Honors in 2017. Prior to beginning her career at ATG, she lived briefly in San Diego where she learned crowds weren’t her “thing," and returned to Missoula to begin her career in tech.

In her two years at the company, Taylor worked in the Delivery organization as a SpringCM and Aria Implementation Consultant before transitioning to the Strategy and Corporate Development team to help ATG lead its European expansion efforts. In addition to her role in international expansion and contributions to Partner Alliances, Taylor co-founded ATG’s affinity group for LGBTQIA+ employees – ATG+ from her passion for equality and diversity in the workplace. For the last six months, Taylor has been dedicated to research to expand the ATG Monetization Ecosystem™, to include ATG’s perspective and analysis on 7 key technologies affecting Quote to Cash. She is most interested in how the customer experience will be maintained while these challenging new technologies are explored for enterprise use.

Day-to-day, you can find Taylor working on home improvement projects, applying sunscreen on her Mexican Hairless/Chihuahua rescue dog Mickey, or playing Skyrim. She is happy to enter a standard Montana-sized crowd to take advantage of Missoula’s music scene or go to a locally-owned and sourced restaurant, which would combine many of her favorite things – great music, great food, and time spent with loved ones.
