Flite guest blogger: Brittany Brown Ceres, Director of Human Resources

At Flite, we support our workforce with enthusiasm.  One example of this is our Flite Elevate Award which was created to recognize employees who contribute to the business and improve our culture. 

The award is given out to two employees twice a year and anyone can be nominated.  The awardees are selected by the previous winners based on submissions over the past 6 months.

We announced our current Elevate recipients last month and are proud share their stories with you.

John Skinner, Ad Operations Manager, joined the team in 2008 and has helped develop the product into what it is today. He is a great resource across cross-functional teams and is known for his diligent, professional attitude.  If you ask John a question, you can trust that he’ll respond promptly and thoroughly, and make sure that you get what you need.

Rob Lennon, Office Manager, provides attention to detail in every aspect of the office that creates an all-around higher level of cubicle happiness. From all-hands meetings to office decor to snacks, everyone in the office benefits from Rob’s willingness to go the extra mile.

The inaugural winners were Andy Yang and Michael Villaseñor.

Andy did a tremendous job working on the website launch in March 2011 as a Principle UX Designer.  He operated with polish even during times of high-pressure.

As a Creative Services Manager, Michael nurtured a strong team to create ads that impressed clients over and over.  He played a big role in growing relationships with our earliest customers.

We’re excited about how far we’ve come as a company and the great people who work here everyday.
