Staff Spotlight: Meet Taikan!

Summer is in full swing here in New York City. 

And summer means three things: heat that makes you wonder why you ever stepped foot on the subway platform, humidity that leaves us curly-haired ladies shaking our fists at the gods and — of course — interns!

Here in the office, we find respite in our air conditioned space.  And our summer interns always bring a springy step into our day-to-day, with fresh outlooks and incredible questions that keep us on our toes.

Taikan is one of these interns. Taikan joined us as part of the Sales team for the summer, and he’ll be working with us until he returns to Atlanta to complete his pursuit  of a B.S. in Physics at Emory University. Lucky for us, he’s all ours till then!

In his first week here, our Sales team was just getting started with a newer kind of guerilla marketing tactic: they shipped out and hand delivered these fun little summer boxes to keep us top-of-mind for clients. They included all the summer necessities: a Chicory cup that changes from white to Chicory-purple based on your drink’s temperature, the makings of a vodka soda, to quench our clients’ thirst, and a mini pool floatie that can double as a cupholder ( so everybody can keep sippin’ poolside)!

And since blowing up tens of pool floaties, he’s moved on to become our leading expert in Salesforce data exports as well as our go-to guy for golf swing tips. Since we’re loving our time with Tai so much, we thought we’d help everyone get to know this intern with the mostest with this staff spotlight!


With his sunny demeanor and roll-your-sleeves up attitude, Taikan is helping set our Sales team up for maximum success and establishing strong client-seller relationships! His contributions and hard work will continue to be felt long after he returns to Emory!
