11 Aug Get to Know Force: Bid Syed
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 Regional Business Development Manager Bid Syed!
Q. What’s your role at Force, and what does it entail?
Regional Business Development Manager. My role is all about prospecting the right new clients in the right markets and matching them to a sales rep who can help them be the best store they can be. In short, get new business!!
Q. What’s your favorite thing about what you do here?
It has to be the people! I work with many of my best friends who I’ve known since before FORCE and I’ve made many new ones. I love the energy and atmosphere. We work and play just as hard and nobody micro-manages you here! Oh, plus the money ain’t bad either!
Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself outside of work.
Wow…. So, outside of work most people from work may not recognize me. I make new age funk music in a band called “Da JErKZ.” We’re superheroes with magical music powers (even have costumes). It’s a lot of fun and I’m dedicated to my JErK way of life, but just as much, I’m a dedicated father and husband. Oh, I also take part in many businesses, like FlyBoarding (ask me about it), management, engineering, booking agent, etc. Man of many trades!!
Q. What’s your dream travel destination, or favorite place you’ve ever traveled?
I have to say Dubai beat all others, but thinking about Thailand in December, so we’ll see how long that lasts.
Q. Did you have any sort of automotive background before Force?
Not at all.
Q. What’s your dream vehicle?
Porsche 911 Turbo or Carerra, the old school ones.
Q. What’s your theme song?
Until the End Of Time – Tupac (rest his soul) 🙏🏾
Q. Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Most likely my son and me if I’m not too old. Nobody else could handle it. Lol
Q. What advice would you give to a new employee at Force?
Take it seriously, work hard, ask when in doubt and wash your own dishes! This place is awesome!
Q. What’s your favorite quote?
“I can’t complain about how much is on my plate when all I’m trying to do is eat!” – somebody (might be me)
Q. Any weird talents or facts about you?
Other than the fact that when I leave FORCE I turn into a JERK super hero? Nah, that’s about it.
Q. Anything else you’d like people to know?
Approach me. I have love and positivity for everyone I come in contact with. Don’t judge my outer appearance. I may surprise you.
