2017 was a big year for us here at NX Direct. Like HUGE! We’re talking promotions, travel, team bonding, awards, growth – it was an amazing year all around. The thing we love most about our team here at NX Direct is that we always celebrate the good times and relish in our successes but then roll our sleeves up the next day and get back to our goals….and 2018 – we have our eyes set on you!
Here’s what all we did this year!
Wow – talk about going places!! We started off January 2017 in Austin, TX at a massive sales & leadership conference held by our client’s broker, made our way back to Texas in July (this time to Dallas) for a networking & awards conference, found ourselves in Punta Cana in October for some much deserved R&R, and in between went everywhere you can imagine – Chicago, Seattle, Raleigh, Denver, Los Angeles, Philly, Phoenix, Orlando – the list goes on!! We believe that the best learning experiences come from outside of your comfort zone and make it a habit to provide our team the opportunities to travel past Atlanta at LEAST once a quarter!
WE GREW IN UNITY
2017 was a year of team bonding & exercises. As if traveling cross country with your colleagues wasn’t cool enough, our management team made sure there was a team event available WEEKLY to everyone – whether it was shooting some pool after work, grabbing happy hour, or watching a live sporting event! Why? Because a team happy with their coworkers and environment comes to work in a better state of mind, and a better state of mind produces better work! Here were some of our favorite team events this year:
➡️ Atlanta United FC Game
➡️ Top Golf
➡️ Atlanta Braves Game
➡️ Falcons vs. Cowboys
WE GOT PROMOTED
2017 wasn’t just great for our team personally – it was always an incredible year professionally. Due to the outstanding work ethic and results constantly delivered by NX Direct, our company was chosen by Comcast to pilot a new retail campaign back in March! Since then, our team has grown in confidence, knowledge, and experience, advancing both our client’s market share and their need for new managers. Accordingly, we promoted both Vinni Ascencao and Geo Varghese to Management, helping us oversee more territory and team members here within the Atlanta market.
WE WON AWARDS
To cap it all off, we were recognized the last 2 quarters by both our client & broker, earning their coveted “Campaign Cup” from April – September. In January we’ll again seal the cup for outstanding performance from October – December! With said recognition comes bragging rights (of course!), but also the opportunity to be recognized in front of all of our peers at the next conference held in downtown Atlanta in February!
With such a successful year under our belt, our team is primed to do even bigger things in 2018. With the current leadership and talent we have, we expect to help our client grow 5 fold in the new year, extending the reach of NX Direct from coast to coast. Be sure to stay up to date with all of our upcoming travels and awards on either Instagram or LinkedIn and from all of us here, HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 🎆🎆
