Consider this. Frontier is 5 years old, and this is the story of the coming together of the people I work with:
Heath, my Technical Director, went to school with me 10 years ago. A year after that we worked together on a venture (that ultimately failed). When I started Frontier I knew exactly who I wanted on my team.
Zach, my Creative Director, didn’t go to school with me, but his schooling ultimately lead him to Union Gospel Mission. In the fall of 2009 when I started working at UGM I met Zach and we’ve developed our working relationship further ever since.
Anna, one of my Strategists, worked at UGM during and after my tenure. When I was looking to grow Frontier I went straight to her to help lead Frontier’s digital operations.
During 2014 I hired Simone, Sarah, Nick, Henry, Sophie, then eventually Amy, Mariam and Sarahk. These were the eight most important decisions of the last couple years!
It extends further. I’ve transitioned life to assisting others launch their business. I met Luke who runs Loomo Creative over five years ago while working for Island Savings (and hired him during that time), and Brady who runs Shift Charity three years ago thanks to our mutual love of the Jays (and charity).
Everyone who’s ever worked at Frontier has been a conscience hire and all have paid massive dividends. You can make so many decisions at work, and so many of them can fail. Don’t let hiring be one of those bad decisions.
