At The A Group, we believe our team is our greatest asset, and we're so excited to welcome three new members who bring a broad range of skills and experience to the team.
Brad Ezell joins the team as a Business Development Associate, connecting organizations with The A Group and building relationships with clients. Originally from Florida, Brad spent most of his life in Kentucky, where he earned a degree in Business Administration from Murray State. After graduation, he moved to Nashville to work as a Technical Sales Specialist with Dell. Looking for an opportunity that would allow him to develop more personal relationships with clients, Brad found The A Group and it instantly clicked. "I was very impressed with the outstanding work The A Group had done and knew I wanted to be a part of a quality company like this. I wanted a place that was going to challenge me daily to not only become better man and young professional, but also somewhere where I could build upon my skills of relationship building and selling." Brad loves to connect with people and figure out how The A Group can come alongside organizations to help them increase their reach.
Alexandra Hopkins came on board in April as our Executive Administrator, just a few weeks after moving to Nashville from sunny Florida. She is a graduate of Florida State University, and has held positions as a Staff Accountant, Financial & Executive Assistant, and Project Manager, where she gained experience in Human Resources, Operations, Accounting, Marketing, and PR. After living on nearly every Florida coast, she knew it was time for a change and is happy to be in the land of sweet tea and Southern hospitality. "What drew me to The A Group was the company’s mission and clientele. Once I interviewed with Diana & Maurilio, and met the team, I knew it would be a perfect fit. I am absolutely delighted to be here, and I look very forward to the continued success of the company." Alex keeps everything running smoothly at The A Group, from being the friendly voice on the other end of the phone to making sure Maurilio's espresso stash is fully stocked.
Finally, the newest addition to the team is Albert Samuels, an Account Manager specializing in technology. Another Nashville transplant, Albert and his wife just moved from Michigan after a stint in Texas, and our resident foodie can't wait to explore the Nashville restaurants and Southern cooking -- despite his recent decision to cut out gluten (anyone know of good gluten-free biscuits in town?). Albert brings extensive marketing experience to the team, working in industries from Christian publishing to restaurants and entertainment. He also has a heart for ministry and helped plant a church when he lived in Texas. Albert serves our clients, coming alongside them every step of the way to ensure projects get done right and on time.
We know Brad, Alex, and Albert will provide great client experiences, from the first phone call to finishing a project. If you see a new face around here, be sure to say hi!
