For someone who loves to swing for the fence, starting a major project is always exhilarating.

Placing a definition around art is always a subject of debate, but Gregg likes to think that we can all agree that whatever we see art in (be it a painting, in design, or even an athletic activity) there is always something special that distiguishes it. That “something special” has no formula, but trying to find it in design and in fencing has been the direction the last several years of Gregg's life has followed. He has no problem imagining that his interests will continue on in that direction for many more years.

My favorite experience was the Yesmail DR event during the great Omaha flood of 2012. While it was a horrible situation for Yesmail and many of us employees, since we practically slept at work on several occasions, the team building and learning experience of this exercise was next to none. The exercise also built relationships and help provide an appreciation for our peers and their responsibilities. While I wouldn't want to do it again, I am glad to have had the experience participating in something extremely challenging, something that was said couldn't be done, and something that stretched everyone's capabilities beyond we all thought was possible.

I can’t imagine a more stimulating, supportive and collaborative environment and the fact that we hang out outside of work makes it even better. It is one thing to constantly want to do well to impress your coworkers, and it’s a completely different thing to want to be successful in order to enhance your friends’ efforts.

When I look back at the various projects we have taken on here that really pushed the envelop in terms of their challenge level and excitement, our migration and launch of the Party City program onto the Yesmail platform really stands out. Our goal was to get the PartyCity program established and running at full strength in time for their business mailing period – Halloween. Their dedication and determination to the strategies we put forward along with our team's uncanny approach to engage with them – as if we were working at Party City – helped their program achieve everything it expected, and more. By the time Halloween rolled around, we were so confident in the foundation we created for their mailings @Yesmail that we were able to send even more than we had hoped, and tap into even more of their audience.
