Bio

Mary Ann joined TaskUs in mid-July 2016 as our Assistant Controller in the Santa Monica office. She also assists the accounting department in the Philippines.

Mary Ann worked in public accounting before joining TaskUs. In 2005, she moved to Los Angeles from the Philippines to work at KPMG Los Angeles and then transferred to Green Hasson Janks LLP.

Mary Ann holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Accountancy from the University of the Philippines-Diliman. She is a Certified Public Accountant both in the Philippines and in the United States. In case you're wondering, she's a whiz with numbers!

Mary Ann loves traveling and photography. Each year, she makes every effort to "go on at least one big trip." To date, her favorite travel destination was a Caribbean cruise where she swam with stingrays in the Cayman Islands and visited the Mayan ruins in Mexico! On most weekends, you can find Mary Ann exploring local hot spots, hiking (Griffith Park and Palos Verdes are her favorites), and walking along the Pacific Ocean's waterfronts in Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach!

Ryan Bobos

Director of Data Science

Ryan Bobos

Director of Data Science

Bio

Here's the thing about Ryan: he's amazing. Sure, he's been TaskUs' Director of Workforce Management since June 2015. Sure, he inspires his colleagues on a daily basis with his impressive insight, dedication to excellence, intellect and top-tier skills. And sure, he's a great guy that everyone values around the office.

No, what makes Ryan utterly amazing is that he's a fan of the DC Universe comic books - especially, the Justice League, Batman, Flash and the Green Lantern. So yes, Ryan is freaking amazing. Superheroes, like Ryan, simply can't be any other way but so!

Ryan provides strategic direction, tactical leadership and day-to-day responsibilities for the Workforce team. He ensures proper staffing and training to accomplish departmental goals and objectives. He collaborates key stakeholders to develop processes, procedures, and methodologies, which support the company's culture and goals. Ryan drives cost savings initiatives for operational efficiencies. He also assesses and quantifies near-term risk and opportunities, and the impact of business initiatives.

He began his TaskUs career as Team Leader in August 2011. By January 2014, he was promoted to Operations Manager. When January 2015 rolled around, our resident superhero was promoted again, this time to his current position as Director of Workforce Management.

Before TaskUs, he held roles at Stellar Global Solutions, ePerformax, eTelecare Global Solutions and ITEC Support Plus.

He holds a Bachelor degree in Electronics from the Technological University of the Philippines.

Brian Bergerson

Office Manager

Brian Bergerson

Office Manager

Bio

Upon joining TaskUs back in early 2017, Brian was asked to write a website biography, which sent him into a year long existential crisis. How would he even begin to convey his insatiable appetite for new experiences, or his passion for learning a little bit about everything and everyone? Would he talk about how he enjoys driving to the middle of nowhere and staring at the stars for hours on end? No, that would that make him seem really weird. Should he talk about his dog, Charlie? No, he talks about him too much as is. What about his love of red wine?

Maybe he sticks to his resume and how he used to work at Walt Disney World after graduating from the University of Idaho. Or about that one time he worked in Alaska building ice roads. Or when he managed estates for LA's elite (wow, he moves a lot!). This got off track. Is this even a bio? Let's focus on the now…

As our Office Manager, Brian plays an instrumental role in the overall vibe of TaskUs' Headquarters office in Santa Monica, Task Force One. His role goes well beyond ordering office supplies and stocking the kitchen with healthy (and not so healthy -- hello dark chocolate peanut butter cups) snacks. He works closely with all of our internal teams as well as our external vendors, positioning himself as the go-to for all things TaskUs. If he doesn't have an answer for you, you can bet he'll utilize every resource he has to figure it out! And if you're stressed, Charlie will surely cuddle up on your lap and help calm your nerves. Told you he talks about his dog a lot.

When he's not at the office making sure that everything is running smoothly and comfortably with the perfect playlist playing in the background, Brian enjoys traveling and exploring new places with his pup. Ugh, There he goes again!

Steven Gray

Director, Information Technology

Steven Gray

Director, Information Technology

Bio

Steven Gray joined the TaskUs team in November of 2017, as our Director, Information Technology for the Americas region. Based in San Antonio, he will be responsible for leading IT support and expansion efforts throughout all of our sites, which is no small task.

Starting his career in the US Air Force as a Tech Controller, Steven has built an impressive resume over the last 25 years in the IT industry. He has held various senior leadership positions at Capital One, Cisco Systems and eLoyalty, where he led Managed Services for Cisco Contact Center and Voice Services.  

In his time off, he likes to travel and spend time with his family. Some of his hobbies include hitting the gym (something he's strived to do since his teens), as well as collecting and restoring classic hot rods – most currently '32 Ford Roadster and a '41 Ford Truck. 

Genel “Jet” Desiderio

Senior E-Learning Manager

Genel “Jet” Desiderio

Senior E-Learning Manager

Bio

With over a decade of experience in the training field, Jet joined the E-Learning division of the Learning & Development team as a Senior Manager, where she is responsible for marketing our key capabilities to both existing and potential clients. She comes in with a myriad of best practices in the fields of instructional system design, distance education and digital learning.

Her extensive work experience encompasses various roles within the training function. Shortly after graduating from the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA in 2006, she hit the ground running as a Communication Skills Trainer, eventually earning her stripes as a Training Manager in 2008. Since then, she has continued to expand her role and has spearheaded the training, implementation and maintenance of several customer service campaigns for a variety of verticals: Technical Support, Digital Entertainment, ForEx Trading, and Sales and Fulfillment. She received her HPMT COPC Certification in April 2010.

Although Jet has built an impressive career in the BPO industry, her initial career of choice was actually in film. In fact, she was given the opportunity to work alongside prominent producers in the local film industry; however, she decided to explore a different path. And to this very day, she wouldn't have had it any other way. Graduating with a bachelor's degree in mass communication, major in film, her desire to captivate her audience, evoke emotions and leave lasting impressions proved to be advantageous, in both the film and BPO industries.  

Jet grew up watching "The X-Files"–naturally making her a sucker for Sci-Fi movies and TV shows. One of her favorites is a show called "Fringe," which she says she has "probably" watched (all 5 seasons) more than five times. She likes long drives, hearty breakfasts, amber sunsets, and spending weekends at home–with her twenty-something cats.

Marky Ma

Finance Manager

Marky Ma

Finance Manager

Bio

October 2015: It is a month that will be remembered forever as a milestone in TaskUs' history, for in that 10th month of 2015, Marky Ma joined the team as its new Financial Analyst. It is rumored that film composer John Williams offered to score his entrance for the moment that he stepped through TaskUs' door for the very first time. We may never know where fact separates itself from fiction. In January 2017, Marky was promoted to Sr. Financial Analyst and then to Finance Manager in 2018.

What we do know for certain is that Marky leads TaskUs' global pricing requests while working with our Sales, Operations, and Client Services teams. He also plays a critical role on our Global FP & A team.

One might ask, "From where did the myth, the man, the Marky come?" Alas, only his bosses at his former internships know for sure. We salute those brave bosses who mentored, trained, and guided him to become the financial superstar-in-the-making that we are proud to have on the TaskUs team today!

Marky graduated from Pepperdine University - a university he considers one of the most beautiful in the United States - with a Master of Science degree in Applied Finance.

In addition to wowing our socks off each and every day, Marky enjoys delicious cuisine, drawing on the weekends, and playing the multiplayer online battle arena video game "Dota 2". He regrets that his solo MMR (matchmaking rating skill level) in the game is "only 4000."
