There aren’t enough positive adjectives to describe marketing promotion manager Crystal Perez, but in his nomination form, creative director Jeff Kesar nails some fitting descriptors of the marketing department phenom: “adaptable, affectionate, ambitious, amiable, diligent, generous, intuitive, persistent, rational, reliable, sincere, and unassuming.”
“Excellent” is another accurate adjective for Crystal, who demonstrates the core company value of excellence by handling several tasks at once while simultaneously solving problems. “Crystal juggles at least 10 different projects at the same time,” says Annie Leung, senior graphic designer in the marketing department. “She manages to stay on top of them and produce the best result.”
Her many innovations at WWS include devising a system for scheduling and tracking social media posts, learning how to be a better photographer so she can contribute images for marketing materials, and organizing the company merchandise shop.
“Crystal was faced with the task of getting our swag and literature organized and easy to order, track and reorder,” Jeff says. “She came up with a solution that solved years of frustration in the marketing department and has made everyone’s life much easier.”
By always being available to offer suggestions and answer questions, Crystal makes herself a valuable partner and team player.
“We are so grateful to have Crystal as part of the Western Window Systems marketing team,” says Laura Hahnefeld, vice president of marketing. “Her passion, honesty, and willingness to take chances have resulted in new ideas like our swag shop, webinars, and brand presence on social media. And her energy, confidence, and optimism create a unique environment that encourages creative thinking and is an absolute joy to be a part of.”
