My name is Scott and I work at Mozy

Welcome to our first anniversary of the “My name is…”, our blog series on introducing you to some of our talented team members who directly contribute to the success of Mozy. Mozy has been fortunate to win “Utah’s Best Place to Work” four times in a row. We’re successful; our products are secure and sustainable, and we value our customers. Having said that, Mozy wouldn’t be the amazing place it is without our dedicated, passionate and generous team members. We are very fortunate to be surrounded by extremely intelligent people who inspire and motivate others around them.

This time, we’d like you to meet Scott Lee, our Director of Marketing. Scott is a key driving force behind all the marketing initiatives that we undertake for our business-to-business products and channel marketing for MozyPro and MozyEnterprise. Scott has provided some key insights to how and where Mozy should position itself, in the B2B space.

My name is Scott and I work at Mozy

I define my workspace as …
Depends on the day or time of day. Sometimes it’s a desk, sometimes a conference room, sometimes the hallway.

A device I can’t live without …
iPhone.
Author’s note: I mean, if you own an iPhone then you know this feeling (myself included)! How did we ever manage without it?!?!?

When I arrive at work, I typically start off by …
Filling up my water cup…must stay hydrated. I check email, the business dashboard, and then usually wander over to the sales team to see how things are going. Then off to meetings or whatever.

My work routine is …
I am a list guy. I make a list of objectives for each quarter, then a list of weekly projects or tasks, and manage to that each day. Of course it doesn’t all get done, but it keeps me focused on the big things while limiting as much minutiae as possible. I even schedule time in my calendar for tasks as if they were meetings. I also float around a lot to talk face to face with people, hear what they think, etc. It’s crazy how many great ideas come from actual conversations! #emailhasitslimits

I do/do not listen to music at work and it helps me work better because …
Definitely do. I have Spotify or Pandora on when I’m at my desk, usually listening to classical if I’m in a heavy analytical mindset, classic rock for pounding through email, or a mix of stuff if I’m writing/reviewing content.

The best advice I can give a recent college graduate looking to do what I do is …
Work hard, work smart, work with others not against them.

Outside of work, I am passionate about …
My family (my wife and I have five children), golf, road cycling, and college sports. Go Cougars!

My eating habits are …
Better than they have been for a while. I have a weakness for chips and salsa though.

If I could be someone for a day – I would be …
Jimmer Fredette in a Utah Jazz uniform.

The “secret sauce” that makes me who I am …
Intense curiosity.

My name is Ben and I work for Mozy

Welcome back to another edition of “My name is…” blog series. This month we’d like you to meet Ben Nettesheim, our Senior Manager of eCommerce. Ben is the glue that ensures that all the different online tentacles that Mozy has out there are positioned for our benefit. Do our SEO words leverage online marketing campaigns? Do all of our website(s) convey the right message, the way they should? Do our online efforts make us even more stellar? Simply put, Ben is our eCommerce Yoda.

My name is Ben and I work for Mozy

I define my workspace as …
The website!

A device I can’t live without …
My Google Nexus phone, Hydro 5 Razor, and Old Spice Pure Sport deodorant.

When I arrive at work, I typically start off by …
Logging into my web dashboards. Who came to the website? Who purchased? Who left comments?

My work routine is …
Analyze, ask questions, and adjust the experience. Rinse and repeat.

I do/do not listen to music at work and it helps me work better because …
I do! A Pandora quick mix is where I typically live. A variety of all sorts of music keep me going.

The best advice I can give a recent college graduate looking to do what I do is …
Get involved. Start your own blog or website. Implement some tracking for free like Google Analytics. Try making some cash off it for fun.

Outside of work, I am passionate about …
Wisconsin sports, Real Salt Lake, and the US National and Brazilian National Soccer teams. I also love being crazy w/ my young kids, camping in the beautiful Utah National Parks, and geeking out to tech news.
Author’s note: I wonder if Ben left off “Walking Dead” from his list intentionally?? Most of the Marketing team are die hard fans and other than sports talk – “Walking Dead” is high on the list!

My eating habits are …
I’m in charge of Sunday dinner in our family, so I have a lot of fun w/ that. Some of the fan favorites have been dubbed “Bensagna, Benoganoff, and “Man Roast.”

If I could be someone for a day – I would be …
Easy Peazy. Captain America. Give me an Adamantium shield and super human speed and strength, and I’m good to go!
Author’s note: Captain America…yeah…duh ☺ What Ben left out is that his family also dresses up for movie premières – I believe he was Snake Eyes for the G.I. Joe premiere. Ben can be counted on for dressing up for Halloween.

The “secret sauce” that makes me who I am …
My wife and five kids. Yeah… a lotta sauce.

My name is James and I work for Mozy

We’ve had so much fun introducing our team members to you that this month we’ve chosen someone who has been with Mozy for quite a few years. His tenure with the company has allowed him unique insight to the change that Mozy has gone through – both as a company and the culture within the company. Allow me to introduce you to James Jolley. James oversees our Affiliate and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) programs. He provides support for our Affiliates and ensures they are well taken care of and the partnerships remain positive. As the SEO Manager, James also provides incredible insight and direction for where we strategically place ourselves online.

My name is James and I work for Mozy

I define my workspace as …

After five years with the company you would think I would have dolled up my cubicle but I haven’t. Therefore, I would define my workspace as a place where my computer and I reside for a few hours a day – it’s not much more than that.

A device I can’t live without …jack
The device that provides the world with Mountain Dew.
Author’s note: I can safely say that James has tried every single Mountain Dew product or spin-off, including Mtn. Dew lip balm. Saying that he loves Mtn. Dew is an understatement.

When I arrive at work, I typically start off by …
Answering emails and getting caught up on relevant marketing blogs.

My work routine is …
Get caught up on emails. Then depending on the day I’ll work on one of our five Affiliate programs or our sites for SEO efforts.

I do/do not listen to music at work and it helps me work better because …
It’s hard for me to focus in a cubicle environment where you can hear every conversation and as a result, I do listen to music. Noise cancelling headphones playing Chopin or Dave Matthews Band and I’m set for the day!

The best advice I can give a recent college graduate looking to do what I do is …
Don’t get frustrated because most of what you end up doing won’t be covered in college. Take one day at a time and build a solid foundation. Allow yourself at least one hour a day at work to increase your knowledge base.

Outside of work, I am passionate about …
I’ve recently become an avid road cyclist. I’m fortunate (as well as my coworkers) that Mozy has showers so that I can ride into work during the summer. I also really like learning about U.S. history – from the beginnings of Plymouth and Jamestown to the end of WWII.

My eating habits are …
…getting better. I’m trying to eat out less and making healthier choices besides the annual gorge on Girl Scout cookies.

If I could be someone for a day – I would be …
Curator/Director for Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. I spent a whole day (the guard had to kick me out) at that museum and was only able to get through two of the three floors. Going behind the scenes to see what they have but don’t show would be amazing.

The “secret sauce” that makes me who I am …
I guess would be my ability to keep cool in stressful situations. I also try to learn something about everything so that I don’t have to avoid any conversation where I don’t have anything in common with the other person.
