Ian Spector

Senior Account Executive

Aspirations and Goals as a Human Being:
Let’s find a way to make everyone have the kind of manners Texans do; Yes ma’am & yes sir are a way of life!

 

Experience, Education and Credentials:
I graduated from Texas Tech University in 2011 with a BA in Marketing. Straight out of college I was an Auto Group Internet Manager and now I’m slinging print.

 

What do you like to do when you’re not working?
I spent a lot of my time hanging out with my two Doodles (Barrett & Lucy), golfing, hunting and I’ve also starting doing some woodwork to pass the time.

 

Favorite quote:
If you were able to believe in Santa Claus for like eight years, you can believe in yourself for like five minutes.

 

Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us:
I’m an only child… Just kidding, that didn’t surprise anyone! I’ve never broken a bone, and plan on keeping it that way.

 

Tell us three things most people don’t know about you:
1) At 14, I turned down a completely restored 1979 Jeep CJ-7… because I wanted a Corvette instead. Yeah…I got 1997 Ford Ranger.
2) I love driving long distances. I have driven to the West Coast once and the East Coast twice.
3) I played Collegiate Hockey while at Texas Tech

 

Three words to best describe you:
Goofy, Ambitious, Tenacious

 

Anything else you want to share (family, hobbies, whatever)
I’m a High School Youth Leader with my Church…which also currently doubles as a viable reason to act like I’m a child again.

 

What do you like most about Slate Group?
I am constantly surrounded with people (both in Sales & Production) that truly care about others. Working together to find a solution to one of our crazy idea, or trying to find ways to produce a better product are not anomalies; they are every day occurrences.

 

What do you like most about your role at Slate Group?
Without a doubt, my favorite part of my role here are the relationships I’m able to grow & have with my clients. The opportunity to be a part of their teams, and truly care about their brand is awesome. Internally, it’s the friendships and camaraderie. Whether its daily interaction or weekend golf outings, hanging with this team never gets old.

 

What drew you to Slate Group originally?
The company culture, and direction was an instant attraction. Print is not dead, and that is very obvious with how SG strives to be more for our clients.

 

What has been your favorite project at Slate Group?
I’ve had an amazing opportunity to be a part of numerous Music Education Associations. From strictly print to complete concept and design, being a part of the excitement and growth has been so cool!
