Snapshots of Life at LP
Meet Derek Adams
What has your career trajectory at LP looked like?
I was the very first interview in the Austin, Texas office while the office was still under construction. Now I am the General Manager of that same office, and I got to where I am through grit and tenacity. But most importantly, I followed the directive of my superiors. Austin Trunnell has been a huge influence on my success and I wouldn’t be where I’m at without his guidance.
How do you explain what you do for a living to family and friends?
I manage an office that sells digital marketing services in different avenues—PPC, SEO, Email marketing, social media, and web development.
What do you most love about your job?
Watching employees grow from the ground floor and watching them get their first sale and walking over and ringing that bell.
How do you keep your team motivated?
Hype! I tell light at the end of the tunnel success stories to get people motivated.
