There’s no WME Without ‘Me’: Introducing Marketing Manager Assistant Don
After chatting with Senior PMT Specialist Marina last week, we’re flipping over to our marketing team to chat with Don, the mastermind behind our clients’ email direct marketing strategies. Find out what our resident foodie-cyclist gets up to when he’s not coming up with savvy new ways to grab consumers’ attention…
Name: Don Sulejmani
Role: Strategic Marketing Manager Assistant
Tell us a little about yourself…
I’m a handsome 24-year-old who grew up in Perth and moved to Melbourne at the ripe age of 15. I’ve been known to be a chocolate (or snack) fiend and it’s not unusual for me to polish off an entire packet of Tim Tams in one sitting… for breakfast. I actually started cycling just so I could eat more food. My first love was advertising, which I studied straight out of high school and eventually led to me producing EDMs (not electronic dance music).
When was the first time you heard about ~the internet~?
I’m pretty sure my oldest sister showed me the internet on this massive IBM computer we got when I was about 12 or something. She showed me a game that was like Scrabble on Yahoo where you could chat to people while playing. I used to spend hours chatting to people, telling them I was 20 in the hopes they would be my girlfriend.
In one line, what is the most rewarding part of your job?
Definitely the clients and the super smart people I get to work with and learn from.
Obviously eating. I’m a carb enthusiast so pizza, baked goods and burgers make my life (mostly) complete. Then I ride my bicycle out in the Dandenongs so I can burn it off. Life’s about balance, right?
I did a couple of stints out at the mines in WA. Working in 45+ degree heat while wearing long sleeves and pants is not ideal.
