Adfero has experienced explosive growth over the past few months. We are bursting at the seams, in a good way, and couldn’t be happier as we look to the future. We pride ourselves on having a staff with diverse talents who enjoy learning from one another. Recently, we took some time to get to know our newest hires by asking them some (not so) frequently asked questions.
If you were a cartoon character who would you be?
Mayi El-Maddah, our newest Account Supervisor, said Alvin the Chipmunk resembles her approach to life, both professionally and personally. “I don’t always follow the rules, but I get things done,” she said. “I always do things, and then ask for forgiveness later.” Mayi believes the best approach is delivering the highest quality results every time, no matter what. We are thankful for her go-getter attitude and strong work ethic.
How would you use your super powers if you were Superman?
Account Director Erin Smith jumped at the idea of having superhuman hearing, remarking that she would be able to hear conversations in even the most crowded places. A client would never have to repeat themselves – Erin would be able to hear every request and jot down her notes at superhuman speed while taking flight back to the office to execute said requests in a timely fashion. Erin may not actually have super powers, but she certainly delivers work at a super pace with superior organization skills.
What component of Microsoft Office would you be?
Sean Bethel, the most recent Web Developer to join our interactive team, said, “If I were a component of MS Office, I would be Word from Office Mac v. X. This is the Office suite that I used throughout college. This version of Word propelled me through many long papers and many long nights. Thirty-five pages on Sen. Joseph McCarthy anyone?” This life-long Apple lover can be found running around the office with his iPad, heeding requests to develop innovative solutions for clients and increasingly efficient IT systems at Adfero.
What salad topping best describes you?
Jason Simko was brought on as Adfero’s first Art Director. “I would have to say that the art department is the dressing. While the various parts of the salad are crucial, both as individual entities and as part of the final whole, the dressing is what ties it all together. The art department is what ads color and flavor to all of the different properties the salad tosses together.” Jason said. We thought about expressing how lucky we feel to have Jason on board artistically, but decided to leave the imagery to the master.
What is your hidden talent?
Ryan White, our newest Senior Account Executive, has an elephant’s memory. Details and situations years old remain vivid in his mind. Did your brother’s second mother-in-law grow Tennessee’s largest pumpkin? Were you the runner-up in your 8th grade geography fair? Ryan’s ability to remember these details may leave you in awe as he can repeat meeting minutes to you without so much as glancing toward his notes. Ryan’s memory enables him to exceed client expectations and build lasting relationships by helping him with the details that matter.
With all of their quirks and personality, Adfero is lucky to welcome this new batch of talent to our team.
