Ivan, our Chief Executive Dog is extremely busy, but he took a few minutes to give us an exclusive interview! We are proud of the work Ivan does in the office to boost morale and remind us to take ergonomic-friendly breaks!
You may know Lindsay Swanson as the Marketing Manager at Simplified Communications, but her major strengths are in reworking Big Business strategies into the environment of a smaller company, and leading games of Tag.
Lindsay brings nearly a decade of marketing experience to Simplified Communications. She's skilled in client engagement, social media, and marketing campaigns. Her favorite part of marketing is helping people discover the things they truly need--even if they didn't know what that product or service was called, or that it even existed!
Staying connected with clients and getting creative in marketing requires a certain level of fun and play. Lindsay might be found taking a much-needed computer screen break, playing tag in the office with her dog, Ivan. The desks are lined up to make a perfect path for tagging the office pup, with Reed and Patrick.
Lindsay's day-to-day life has changed quite a bit since last year, but not just because of the pandemic. She used to work for a large financial services company. Many of the strategies and tools that were used there have been retooled and applied to Simplified Communications. She loves the freedom of working in the telecom industry, which has so few rules and regulations compared to financial services. Tag wasn't really allowed at her previous office!
Simplified Communications isn't all fun and games, though. The telecom industry is extremely complex with the many options and myriad of ways to build solutions. Lindsay enjoys being able to work alongside industry experts who can brainstorm possibilities and help create excellent answers for clients.
Chief Executive Dog, Ivan is named after one of Lindsay's favorite beach bars on her favorite island, Jost Van Dyke, BVI.
Working in the telecommunications industry since 2002, Reed Knutsen has brought helpful solutions to his clients in good times and bad. He has made a number of COVID-19-required adjustments to his life and work. Luckily Reed is always up for a challenge.
The hardest part about living in lockdown is that Reed loves All The Food. A medium rare steak, pizza, Asian cuisine. His favorite--a hidden gem in the north Coon Rapids suburbs called Angkor, serving Chinese Cambodian. But lately, he is doing more cooking from home.
