“Getting to know you, getting to know all about you.”
Can you practically hear the song from “The Sound Of Music” in your head?
We have a new team member who has recently joined our Webconnex customer support team, and it only seemed fitting we introduce him with a song as he is musically inclined.
Meet Ryan, he is one of the kindest and most genuine people you will ever meet. We have no doubt his calm, gentle approach to support will soothe our clients into software loving bliss.
We decided we’d ask Ryan a few questions to help you get to know him a little better. Without further ado here are his answers to our hard hitting questions.
What do you love most about being a part of the WebConnex Team?
Being a part of the WebConnex team has been awesome! The fun culture here is the special sauce that makes our office a refreshing place to work. Whether it is a silly video one of us found, an indoor cycling class, or a ridiculous episode of The Office over lunch, this team knows how to enjoy themselves in the workplace. Oh, and I haven’t even mentioned…we have a ping pong table! The WebConnex team is more like a family than a just group of coworkers.
In addition to having endless fun with the company culture I have had the privilege of knocking out countless projects with this team. Each person in this Webconnex family embodies the definition of the word, awesome! That tends to be a word you hear a lot around here. The character of each person here is second to none. We are comprised of some of the most talented, dedicated, and caring people I have met. Every day, I leave the office inspired. The team is endlessly creative and fearless in the face of challenges. Never does someone here pass the opportunity to lend a hand, answer a question, or dive headfirst into resolving an issue. With incredible people like this, together we get to make an incredible impact.
WebConnex really goes the extra mile for our clients. Every day we get to hear parts of our clients stories, and response to their needs. In each story, from the race director who is expecting thousands of registrants, to the musician who is to teaching guitar lessons, to the missionary that is building schools in Haiti, we get to play an intricate role. Our software enables people to reach their goals by providing a simple solution to the sometimes complex needs of event registration, fundraising, and ticketing. Our clients all dream of creating the most successful events they can, and we help make this possible. Putting our heads together and making dreams possible is one of the most satisfying parts of being on the team. I have always longed for a job in a company I really believe in. At WebConnex, I have found that.
When you have a free Saturday to do whatever you want, what do you do?
With a free Saturday, where I could do whatever I want, what wouldn’t I do?! To start the day off, I would have the breakfast of champions in the company of great friends. For me, that would be a breakfast of chorizo, eggs, pancakes, and don’t forget a healthy side of bacon. To follow, I would set out on some type of adventure in the great outdoors. Snow skiing, hiking, biking, trail running, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, boating, and river rafting are by far my favorite ways to tackle mother nature. The more sunshine and fresh air, the better.
After this adventure, I would have to go for one of my favorite tri-tip sandwich or burrito joints and then maybe take a quick siesta before the evening’s activities. In the evening, I would love to go for a bonfire jam session at the beach, complete with guitars, singing, and smore’s all around. Equally, I could go for a night of getting down country line dancing or swing dancing. I can’t rule out the chance I might be in the mood for a relaxing night in instead. I’m a sucker for getting comfy and enjoying a good movie.
What are some plans you have coming up?
For this upcoming year, I have a ski trip planned to head up to Lake Tahoe. I absolutely love barreling down ski runs and taking in the fresh mountain air! I also have plans to see a few concerts, Crowder and Matthew West and the new Golden One Center here in Sacramento. Then later this year, I may go to see Phil Wickam in concert, as well as, Kings of Leon at their album release tour in San Francisco. A goal of mine this year has been to go see more concerts and it looks like I’ll be fulfilling that this year.
What is your favorite song right now?
A song easily a the top of my playlist right now would be “Difference Maker” by Needtobreathe. My runner up would be “Smooth Sailin’” by Leon Bridges. The combo of Leon’s soulful vocals and the awesome saxophone solos in this song get me every time!
Reach out to us and ask for Ryan, he would be thrilled to help you with your Webconnex question and I have no doubt your day will be better off for it.
