Employee Spotlight – Drew Fernandez

Drew Fernandez Turns One!

Congratulations to one of the BDR team’s favorite sons, Drew Fernandez on his one year CDM Media anniversary.

Drew joined the organization as we were first building out the BDR team. Strong-willed and a quick learner, Drew has developed into a solid contributor on the Business Development team. The team can always count on Drew to take early morning shifts to call on European accounts/contacts or pick up the slack in countless other ways. Drew is a pace setter when it comes to effort, challenging others to keep up when he’s on form. We’ve known Drew to stay determined, creating quality opportunities where others were afraid to put in the tough work. Drew is a true believer of the phrase “shooters shoot.” Over the past year, Drew has developed the skills and instincts that has helped him achieve the success he’s experienced. These traits will serve him well as he grows into a BDM, as he is on the verge of achieving that benchmark.

While folks may question his karaoke skills after last holiday party’s performance, and as much as Nelson may challenge his focus through trash talking during shuffleboard matches, the sales team is undoubtedly better for the efforts Drew has brought to the organization over the past year. Winners always seem to want to have the ball in their hands when the clock is winding down and it’s winning time. As we make our way into our last Quarter 4 push, we have no doubt that you’re going to take things to the next level. Congratulations again on all your success thus far. CDM Media thanks you for all you’ve done and continue to do.

  1. Thank you Erik! Greatly appreciate the kind words. Time flies when you’re enjoying life and able to surround yourself with people who only make you better. I believe that’s what I found here at CDM.

    I’ve been extremely grateful for the opportunity to help kick-start the Business Development team over the past year. It’s been a learning experience for everyone and whilst things are everchanging, what matters most is that we continue to help each other make positive strides as individuals and as an organization.

    There are many who have directly impacted my development over the past 12 months:

    -Ryland – Who did a wonderful job bringing Ann and myself aboard last October. The lessons learned from him are ones that all of us continue to implement each and every day.

    -Mark – His transition from New York is one of the more critical highlights of 2018, not just for our team, but for the whole company. He brings forth true salesmanship and knowledge of the industry that we are very fortunate to have.

    -Erik – You’ve proven to be one of the most versatile members on the CDM sales floor and it doesn’t go unnoticed. There is no better way to start the morning than receiving motivational texts or pump-up speeches at 5AM.

    -Matt – I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with him on our EMEA portfolio over the course of this year. He portrays some of the very best sales methods, and I think it’s safe to say the numbers don’t lie. I owe much of this transition into BDM to the work I’ve done with him. Thank you!

    -Kirk – As a BDM, you’ve proven you have what it takes to be successful in this role. For someone who isn’t required to manage and assist BDRs you’ve always been open to help out whenever you can. With that being said, I look forward to beating you in FF this week.

    For everyone else in the office, it’s been a hell of a year and I thoroughly enjoy coming in to work with each of you every day. Let’s keep up the hard work as we push through Q4. Here’s to many more!
