The BrightWave annual holiday party is a celebration of our team’s successes, and we had a lot to celebrate this year. We significantly grew our team and offerings by joining forces with Ansira, hosted the best day in email at our third annual EiQ conference, and crowned an exceptional BrightWaver — Becca Rowles — as our newest Quartermaster.
You may ask, “What is a Quartermaster?” Simply put, the Quartermaster is a highly trusted mate that’s elected by their crew to be their voice on the ship. Sticking with our nautical theme, the Quartermaster is BrightWave’s highest honor— the equivalent of employee of the year.
We vote as an agency on the year’s top performer, and the winner receives an awesome trip to the Ritz Carlton at Amelia Island as well as a coveted trophy to inspire others to achieve what they have.
It was no surprise when it was announced that Lead Solution Architect Becca Rowles was this year’s winner. She’s an exceptional teammate that helps our clients enable their marketing technology to build automated, scalable solutions to meet their business goals.
Check out these 10 highlights from the nominations Becca received from her teammates to see why she’s more than deserving of the 2019 Quartermaster award.
