We’re Growing- 7 Questions For Our New Starters!
Name: Andy Marshall
Job Title: Business Development Manager
WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE JOINING F&T?
I’ve spent the last 10 years across all forms of media starting with experience at Johnston Press within regional print and digital titles. Whilst at JP I worked with the team that integrated Sky Adsmart into our product range allowing us to add TV to the print and digital portfolio and achieving great results too. I ventured into the world of radio when I joined Global East Midlands 4 years ago where I’ve enjoyed a successful development learning about radio and DAX in particular which became my most successful product. I’ve joined F&T from Smooth radio where I spent the last 12 months.
WHAT STANDS OUT FOR YOU THE MOST ABOUT F&T?
The team, the feeling of being part of a family that strives to achieve the best for each other and also its clients.
HOW DID YOU COPE DURING LOCKDOWN?
I managed to continue to do my role at Communicorp UK throughout all of lockdown. Luckily my garden pub/shed has converted into an office too which allows me to work remotely without distraction.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
I run a Sunday league Men’s football team which can be both the worst and most favourite thing to do outside of work. Alongside that spending my time with my three children (aged 20, 17 and 2) and wife. I also like a bit of gaming with friends on my Playstation and sharing a beverage in my bar.
WHAT’S YOUR GO TO TV SHOW TO BINGE WATCH?
I love a Netflix series. Stranger Things is in my top 2 of all time but I recently really loved Cobra Kai
WHAT SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM DO YOU USE THE MOST?
Instagram or Facebook for my personal stuff although I probably use LinkedIn for business most often.
WHAT WAS YOUR MOST FUN/EMBARRASSING #WFH MOMENT SO FAR?
Whilst working from home my 2 ½ year old son decided to get onto my computer while I was away from the screen and somehow managed to teams call my manager having a 5 minute mumble with her before I came back in the room! Also had a lot of fun with some team virtual pub quizzes too.
