Our Account Management team is seeing double! Scott started the same day as Juan, so in our mind they’re basically twins. But don’t worry, we didn’t ask them identical questions. Help us welcome Jimi, oops we mean Scott to the Fluid family as we get to know him.
Red Vines or Twizzlers?
Both are equally delicious.
If you were a dictator of a small island, what kind of dictator stuff would you do?
I would require penmanship in grade school and into adulthood. The KonMari method would be taught to all young adults for a more tidy island and to ensure that people only own what “sparks joy.” And I’d require the island to have a variety of 5-star restaurants and $$ prices. If these most important principles were followed, I think the island would run smoothly.
What do you like most about being an account manager?
Creating authentic relationships with clients, co-workers and vendors. This industry and role can be a lot of fun when people know you care about them and their brand.
If you had to change your name, what would you change it to?
If I “had” to I would change my first name, because my last name is untouchable – there’s too much history and hard work built into the Hendrix legacy, so I would struggle giving it up. I would go with Darren Hendrix. For some reason I always wanted to be named Darren when I was younger.
What age do you want to live to?
Into my 90’s (assuming my wife Heather is still by my side for the whole adventure).
How did you decide to become an account manager?
I don’t think I did – it just naturally happened. To get through college I started out as a Sales/Account Manager and the sales side didn’t suit my personality. Account Management is a more natural fit because it allows me to earn the trust of my co-workers and clients over time and grow the relationship.
If you weren’t an AM, what would you do for a living?
Selling fishing worms. No joke, that’s actually what I’d probably be doing.
Whose class would you rather be in, Ms. Frizzle’s or Mr. Feeny’s?
Ms. Frizzle. My daughter and I are still learning from her with the new Netflix reboot.
Would you rather snuggle with a wet soggy bear or eat termites with a chimpanzee?
Ew (cue Jimmy Fallon voice)! Soggy bear?
What brought you to Fluid?
The culture. I’m passionate about continually learning and growing, and Fluid has a built-in culture that helps us evolve and grow. I am also drawn to the creative process of agency life and the impressive awards wall shows that creativity matters to us and our clients.
Is a calzone a sandwich? Defend your answer.
It’s served at pizza parlors, not sandwich shops.
Maybe his super organized dictatorship style will help us all create a desk space that sparks joy. Welcome to the team, Scott!
