If you’ve talked with one of our Sales peeps, you might have rapped with George Tramountanas, LiquidPlanner’s Account Coordinator, who, in his own words, “brings in new clients utilizing my God-given charisma and natural nurturing ethos.” We like people who own their grandness! Read on to learn goodies, like how George beats boredom and a few of his favorite things.
What was it that made you know LP was the perfect fit for you?
I love technology.
Do you have a ritual or routine to the start of your work day?
I say good morning to my co-workers, get my coffee, water, and then we’re off to the races.
How do you beat boredom?
NPR, Songza and CrossFit. If you need to take your mind off something reading a book or exercise is the easiest way to do it.
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Dry, tenacious, happy.
What do you appreciate the most in your co-workers?
They have a passion for helping people and they’re patient.
Your idea of happiness at work is –
Gaining the respect of my peers and reading positive feedback from clients.
If you could have any other job, what would it be?
I’d revert to one of my previous jobs, commercial fisherman in Alaska. I’m also a CrossFit trainer, something I do in the evenings, which I like a lot.
A favorite vacation spot, and why?
Nea Peramos, Greece. I’ve got a bunch of family there. I love the food, the discotheques on the beach, it being 80 degrees at midnight and getting tan.
A favorite book
The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle
What’s your favorite lunch?
Steak, bacon, and more steak.
What’s your strategy for Mondays?
Jump into my workload and get so busy that before I know it the day is over.
What music are you listening to these days?
Seattle Hip-Hop (Macklemore, Blue Scholars), R.Kelly/Usher
