Employee Spotlight: Elle Siebert
Elle Siebert is an Account Executive at Brotman | Winter | Fried, a Sage Communications company. A graduate of University of Central Florida in Orlando, Elle supports BWF’s clients through strategic event and account support.
What are your duties in a typical day here at Sage?
Besides keeping track of the BWF team and its whereabouts, I help to coordinate with clients and current projects, and handle event logistics. A lot of the time, I’m running around DC getting permits for events. You can also find me judging art competitions in Montgomery County from time to time. When we have interns, I manage their schedules and day-to-day activities. This spring, I’ve been working on intern hiring for summer. Keep your eyes out for the new BWF interns in May!
What is the most exciting thing you’re working on right now?
Everything I’m working on right now is pretty exciting. For one client, I’m organizing meetings with members of Congress. I’m also working on Army Ten-Miler social media content, which is my favorite event in DC. What I’m most excited about, though, is the Consumer Technology Association account. I will get to assist in the process for picking speakers and panelists for CES 2020, which is the largest showcase of its kind in the world.
Who inspires you?
My biggest inspirations in life are Lady Gaga, Michelle Obama and my dad. These people are all very different, obviously, but are huge influences in my life, especially because of how hard-working they all are.
What quote do you live by?
“Que Sera, Sera”
Where is your favorite place to travel?
I went to University of Central Florida in Orlando, so I love to go back as often as I can! Besides Orlando, I would have to say Germany - where my family is originally from.
What are three things still left on your bucket list?
1. Eat pasta in Italy while drinking a glass of wine and watching the sunset (not asking too much, really).
2. Ride horses on the beach of Mexico, like they do on every date on the show Bachelor in Paradise.
3. Eat ice cream with Joe Biden and ask him a lot of questions about his friendship with Obama.
What is the most important lesson you’ve learned while at Sage?
Whether it’s day-to-day activities, making friends at work, a specific project for a client, etc., you are only going to get out of it what you put into it.
