Gatorworks Welcomes Blake Borgstede
Let’s Cover the Basics – Where are you from, what is your ideal day, do you have any hobbies?
I am from Metairie, LA but have lived in Baton Rouge for 4 years now. My ideal day is working on qualifying leads, creating proposals and getting to know potential client needs! In my free time, I enjoy fishing, playing golf, watching sports and running around with my adorable Australian Shepherd, Chloe.
What is one thing you are excited to do as a member of the Gatorworks Team?
I am excited to utilize all the resources Gatorworks has to develop lasting partnerships with clients. I also think it’s a great place to be as we go through this growth period. I can’t wait to contribute to the future of Gatorworks!
What was the first concert you went to and where was it? What was your favorite part about it?
First concert was Backstreet Boys Millenium Tour in 1999 in New Orleans. What a great experience! My first time seeing a great light show and good music (at the time). I eventually realized boy bands weren’t “cool”.
What was the first thing you purchased with your own money?
I think the first thing I ever bought with my own money was food. I have no idea what type of food it was, but I’m sure it was good. I like food, don’t judge.
Popeyes chicken sandwich or Chik-Fil-A chicken sandwich? Why?
Chick-Fil-A without a doubt! I actually like Chick-Fil-A so much, that I had it on my groom’s cake at my wedding! I try to eat a Chick-Fil-A spicy sandwich at least once a week.
If you were in a room full of strangers and had to state one weird/spunky fact about yourself, what would you say?
I really like to eat sunflower seeds and it is such a bad habit, but they are so good! I could probably eat a whole bag every day. I also realize how unhealthy it is, so I try to limit my consumption of them.
What drew you to pursue a career in Digital Marketing?
Digital marketing is exciting because it is the future. Times have changed, especially in the way people consume media. We must constantly stay on top of digital trends to ensure our clients don’t waste money on tactics that are obsolete or don’t bring success. It’s such a dynamic industry to be a part of!
