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 Account Manager Mary McDermott!
Q. What’s your role at Force, and what does it entail?
I’m an Account Manager for Pod Top Gun. My job entails executing monthly campaigns for each of my clients in a timely, smooth and successful manner!
Q. What’s your favorite thing about what you do here?
Definitely the people. We laugh all day and still manage to kill it and get it done!
Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself outside of work.
I just got a puppy a few months ago. He is my life. I’m obsessed and bring him everywhere. His name is Flash and he loves when I can bring him to work for a few hours here and there.
I’m also from New Jersey, so I try and go home for the weekend whenever I have free time. #jerseyshore
Q. What’s your dream travel destination, or favorite place you’ve ever traveled?
Favorite place so far was definitely Ireland and seeing where my family is from, but I would love to go to Greece one of these days.
Q. Did you have any sort of automotive background before Force?
Not a darn thing.
Q. What’s your dream vehicle?
I would like a Porsche Cayenne.
Q. What’s your theme song?
Turn Down For What
Q. Who would play you in the movie of your life?
Emma Stone. She’s hysterical!
Q. What advice would you give to a new employee at Force?
Ask as many questions as you can, and take advantage of all of your resources. There’s so many people here who are willing to help and jump in whenever you need it.
Q. Any weird talents or facts about you?
I really like to cook! It’s kind of a stress reliever for me, as weird as it sounds. I have the same birthday as Martha Stewart, so it’s a sign.
Q. Anything else you’d like people to know?
I’m still new to ATL, so I’m always looking for new and fun places to eat/drink. Any recommendations would be cool. Especially dog friendly spots 😉
