Senior Account Executive Andrew Frey has been with Perfect Search for more than four years. Get to know him better in our latest Employee Spotlight!
1) What's your favorite part of your job so far? What's the most challenging part of your job so far?
I've been at it for a little over four years now. There has been so much to enjoy, from the people I "sit next to" to the amazing clients and partners we bring on, and the work we do.
I think my favorite part of it all has really been the balance PSM affords. I've been able to travel and play music states away from home and it's encouraged! We really can do great work while building ourselves independent lives thanks to the way we work and support one another.
2) What's one way you hope to see the digital marketing industry change in the next few years?
There have been so many cool and interesting developments in digital marketing in my relatively short time working in the industry. There have been so many great shifts towards more sincere privacy and transparency and I'm just excited to see more of that and watch the industry grow further in that direction.
3) What's the best advice you've ever received?
That's an interesting one! I've gotten a lot of great advice in my nearly 30 years of living.
- "If you're on time, you're late"
- "Respect is earned, not owed, but extend it to all until they give you a reason not to."
- "Know your worth and be true to it."
These have all stuck with me for a very long time and I believe they serve me very well.
4) What's your favorite Perfect Search memory?
We took a trip to Punta Cana a few years ago. We stayed at this very nice resort and there was this fun lazy river pool with some water slides. A group of us decided we wanted to have some good ol’ water park-esque fun so we headed over and started bombing down those slides!
I cut my foot on some broken tile on the steps after my FIRST slide. Everyone stopped and sat with me while a lifeguard got some bandages and alcohol to clean me up.
Not exactly a fun time, but I felt weirdly supported and cared for, and even though I went the rest of the time nursing a wound on my foot while constantly walking in sand, it was almost worth it to see the true colors of my friends and co-workers.
Almost worth it, but not quite.
5) If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to see?
I think I'm done witnessing historical events if I'm telling you the truth.
6) What is your biggest pet peeve?
PEOPLE WHO TALK DURING MOVIES AT THE THEATER! You have every option of watching movies at home these days. If you want to chat during a flick, that's cool! Just don't do it where I'm paying money to sit next to you.
7) If you could have your own version of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, what would you do?
I think Ferris did it perfectly! It would have to be comparable to his day, but I don't want to wreck any cars. And I don't think I've got the gusto to lip-sync during a parade, but other than that…
