Welcome Launch’s Latest Hires

The new year is already in full swing – projects are underway, invoices are being pulled, and we have not one, not two, but three new faces to welcome to the Launch family.

 First up is Alexa Perez, our new Project Manager.  Alexa comes to Dallas by way of San Antonio, where she was an Account Manager at Giles-Parscale, a local web design and marketing firm.  She’s a proud Bobcat (Texas State School of Journalism and Mass Communication), and “my favorite meal is breakfast. Breakfast, brunch, and brinner, please.”

If you were a toaster, what would you toast, and to what degree? 

A blueberry frosted Poptart, and to the point right before it burns so it’s nice and gooey hot in the middle.

There’s a zombie apocalypse. What do you grab?

Hmm- well I have one of those flint & steel fire starters so that, jerky for sustenance, and of course my dog for moral support. He wouldn’t hunt or anything, he’s basically useless. See photo for proof:

Favorite boy band?

*NSYNC, of course. 

If you could dis-invent one thing, what would it be?

Those tennis shoes with toes.

If fat, calories, cholesterol, etc. were not an issue, what two foods would you feast on?

Tacos with lots of salsa, and chocolate. (Can margaritas count as food?)

What has been the highlight of your experience at Launch so far?

The team! Everyone is so kind and willing to help, it’s awesome.

What do you hope to learn in your future at Launch?

I’m eager to further hone my project management and communication skills as Launch’s Project Manager. :)

 

Next up is Amy Woods, Account Supervisor.  A marketing professional with over 25 years of experience working at both advertising agencies and in the corporate world, Amy lives in Plano with her wonderful husband, 5 children, 3 cats…and lots of dishes.

If you were a toaster, what would you toast, and to what degree?

Toasty warm. never burnt, multi-grain bread. Sublime.

There’s a zombie apocalypse. What do you grab?

My family, running shoes, and a fearless friend with a big gun.

Favorite boy band?

Any boy band no longer performing.

If you could dis-invent one thing, what would it be?

Squatty Potty.  We received one as a gag gift for Christmas. Will give away to the lowest bidder!

If fat, calories, cholesterol, etc. were not an issue, what two foods would you feast on?

Since a martini is not technically food, I vote for hot pizza from Pie 314 or a burger from Mooyah.

What has been the highlight of your experience at Launch so far?

Working with super talented and nice folks.  Also, the music is fantastic!

What do you hope to learn in your future at Launch?

I am always learning. 

  

And last but certainly not least, meet Zach Deutsch, Account Executive.  Zach was born and raised in Houston, TX and graduated from Texas A&M in May 2012. After graduation, he moved back to Houston, where he started his career at a digital marketing firm until moving to Dallas in October and joining the Launch Team. In his free time he enjoys traveling, trying new cuisines and exploring his new home city.
