Each week, we’ll be highlighting a key Force Marketing team member here on the blog. Get to know our team a little better, starting today with Director of Research and Development Alex Appolloni!
Q. What’s your role at Force, and what does it entail?
My job title is officially “Director of Research and Development.” This job title allows me to wear many different hats. I work closely with the other departments at Force to make sure that their job can run as smoothly as possible when it comes to Forcetell, our proprietary workflow system. I also get to work on our Helix platform— coming up with our data schematics, adding new features, and updating the ones we currently have.
Q. What’s your favorite thing about what you do here?
My favorite part about my job is the lack of monotony. Every day presents a new, exciting challenge.
Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself outside of work.
Outside of work, I like to mostly relax and hang out with my friends. I’m really a go-with-the-flow type of guy.
Q. What’s your dream travel destination?
Traveling is the worst… Google images was invented for a reason.
Q. What’s your dream vehicle?
Q. What song would you pick to be your theme song?
Q. Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Shia LaBeouf (long sad sigh).
Q. What’s a piece of advice you would give to a new employee at Force?
Make friends with your coworkers and you won’t just enjoy your job, you’ll love it.
Q. Favorite quote?
“Sometimes you’re flush and sometimes you’re bust, and when you’re up, it’s never as good as it seems, and when you’re down, you never think you’ll be up again, but life goes on.”
Q. Any talents or weird facts about you?
I am the back-to-back-to-back winner of the UF v. FSU bet with [Force Marketing CEO/President and University of Florida grad John Fitzpatrick].
