#WeAreArity Wednesday: Joy Thomas

Arity · October 17, 2018 · 2 min read
In our #WeAreArity series, we shine a spotlight on Arity employees each week. This week meet, VP of Operational Excellence, Joy Thomas.

When Mom asks me what it is that I do again, I say…

At Arity, I’m essentially the Chief Operating Officer and Chief Risk Officer – which means I do whatever I can to make sure we get our work done as efficiently and effectively as possible. I love equipping Arity with the knowledge and tools needed to be strategically and operationally efficient, financially smart, and legally and ethically compliant. #ShitTonDone

In your own words, what is Arity? 

Arity is an investment that Allstate is making in its future to to make sure its embracing disruption and playing a part in shaping the future.

My favorite mode of transportation is…

Driving my car – I love to drive

On a Saturday afternoon, you can find me… 

If it’s hockey season/school time (Sept-May), then I’m watching my kids play hockey or enjoying the Alabama and Oklahoma football rivalries; in the summer, you can find me at my lakehouse chilling with a good book or swimming and sunning!

If you could volunteer for any cause, what would it be? Why?

Teach music to young kids because as a professional harpist, I would be grateful to share my talents and skills with others who are passionate about music.

Most people don’t know I…

Cry whenever I watch the movie Armageddon

The theme song of my life is…

I have two:

  • “Friends in Low Places” by Garth Brooks. This is my group of friends theme song. We love enjoying time together and making memories.
  • “Live Like You Were Dying” by Tim McGraw.  Balancing work and life is really important to me –  I never want to look back and think “I should’ve done that.”

Talk to your rideshare driver or silent ride?

Talk – I ask them why they do it and about their experiences

Would you get in a self-driving car? Why or why not?

Get in yes, buy one, probably not

Favorite innovation pioneer?

Thomas Edison – perseverance is key
