Meet the AdReady Team – Part 1
Meet our team:
I am one of the co-founders of AdReady and very excited to be joining the CPXi team. Prior to founding AdReady in 2006 I managed Classmates.com’s online marketing programs. I currently live in the Midwest, Iowa to be exact, with my wife and 4 children and commute to our offices in Seattle. I enjoy running, spending time watching my kids sporting events and maybe a meal or two at Outback Steakhouse.
As AdReady’s VP of Technology, I am responsible for developing and executing the division’s product and technology vision as well as leading day-to-day media and engineering operations. I hold BA and MS degrees from Washington University in St. Louis. Former Detroiter, been living in Seattle for 13 years, after a stint in St. Louis. Avid fan of both Detroit and Seattle sports teams, and highly conflicted whenever they play each other. Dad of 2 wonderful kids, one 2.5, one 4.5.
I’ve been here in Seattle for over 30 years, and went to the University of Washington. I’ve been in some form of digital advertising for the past 8 years. At AdReady, I manage our largest direct advertiser client program, as well as the relationships with many of our third party inventory sources. I am very happy to be part of the larger CPXi team.
I’ve been in the Seattle area for over 16 years and continue to enjoy the scenery and mild weather, though I spend a lot of time indoors watching Netflix. I was first introduced to the online advertising industry when I joined Classmates.com. After spending nearly seven years at AdReady I am excited to see what the future holds as part the CPXi team.
I was born and raised Taiwan, and later found myself at the University of Washington where I majored in Political Science with an emphasis on China. When I’m not at work, I enjoy traveling, trying out microbrews, desperately rooting on Seattle sports teams, and discovering new bands via KEXP and local shows. Excited to be part of the CPXi family!
I am the Account Manager in the Strategic Partnerships group at AdReady. I recently came to AdReady/CPXi from an exclusively mobile ad and marketing shop. I’m a graduate of the University of Washington in Seattle (Go Dawgs!). In my spare time you’ll find me watching the Red Soxs as I am a 5th generation fan. UW football and basketball are also always on at my place. Otherwise, I love to get outside and hike, golf, kayak, bike, run, etcetera. I am also currently working on my Yoga teacher certification so let me know if you need work on your asanas!
My name is Rommel Marquez, and I am the Systems Engineer for the AdReady division of CPXi. I’ve lived in the Phillippines, Guam, Delano, California and Bakersfield, California. Currently, I’ve been calling the Seattle area my home for the last seven years. When I’m not in front of a keyboard and mouse, I go home and be a family man with my wife Marie and my two year old daughter Cassandra. I also enjoy cooking (when I get the chance), adding to my nerdy t-shirt collection, and finding old Nintendo games to play. Quick super nerd fact about me: I spent a whole Sunday in June of this year beating Ninja Gaiden 2 for the NES. Was it worth it? Of course!
Check back in the coming weeks to meet the rest of the AdReady team. Follow along with AdReady on Facebook and Twitter!
