To better serve our clients, we have made four recent additions to our billing and co-op department. Their importance to the company cannot be understated, as they work closely with both the Account Executives and Media Buyers to ensure all invoicing is properly done – and double-checking that the advertisements abide by stringent corporate co-op guidelines. Today, we introduce you to the new (and semi-new) hires.
Steven Mendoza: He’s already been with us for nearly a year and has made a very positive impression, working his way up to team leader. While this is his first job in the advertising field, the recent University of Central Florida graduate says he learned a lot from his college job. “Selling cutlery helped me learn how to deal with people. I discovered that no matter what business you’re in, as long as you help people get what they’re looking for you will have a happy customer.” He is a big sports fan who recently started volunteering at a local animal shelter – with a goal of eventually adopting a dog.
Greg Williams: This is actually Greg’s second stint with JKR, and he is glad to be back. His previous two years as Account Coordinator have helped him “hit the ground running” in his new position in the billing/co-op department. “This is a great team to work with here,” says Greg, a graduate of Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. It’s not an understatement to say that Greg is still loyal to his Pennsylvania roots, as he is an avid fan of any Philadelphia sports team you can imagine. When he’s not working, there’s a good chance you’ll find Greg playing golf.
Bryce DaCosta: Now in his third month at JKR, Bryce is a well-rounded guy; he has a pair of bachelor’s degrees from the University of Central Florida (psychology and business). Both knowledge bases are a plus in a professional environment. “I think my greatest strength is being flexible,” he said. “I work just as well individually as I do when I’m part of a team. The “happily single” Bryce is a world traveler, having already been to destinations such as Spain, Morocco, England and the Dominican Republic. He is convinced that Winnie the Pooh is the greatest character ever.
Jimmy Reiter: Yet another University of Central Florida graduate, Jimmy has an interesting hobby that helps him with concentration at work. “I have won about 25 medals in the past two years competing in martial arts competitions, and I have no plans of stopping there,” he explained. He carries this work ethic over into his job, as he says he hates leaving anything unfinished. He’s the newest member of the team, having been with us only a month; but he says he appreciates how his new coworkers have made him quickly feel right at home “from my first day”.
