Get to know Keith O’Sullivan, Logan Gattis Designs’ Director of Global Sales and Marketing
We are thrilled to announce our newest member to the team! Meet Keith O’Sullivan, our new Director of Global Sales and Marketing.
Keith is highly energetic and likes to keep everyone in the office on their toes. He also has a keen eye for detail, spotting niches in the market for our clients. Hailing from Ireland, his favorite drink is Whiskey (Jameson in particular) so our team has been spoiled for choice over the last few months! An Irishman drinking Jameson. Who would have thought? Luckily, he fits right in.
Here’s what he has to say for himself.
How did you end up in marketing?
Well it was a natural progression really. I grew up in a family run hotel where I really learned how to sell and promote. I always enjoying meeting and dealing with people. Marketing is an industry where you have the chance to communicate on a much larger scale through your brand strategies and messaging.
I actually did my degree in Real Estate which was a whole different kind of marketing but a lot of fun. After the property market crashed, I decided to pursue my passion and I completed an MBA in marketing which was intense but worth every minute.
Now I am enjoying working in a variety of different cultures learning and becoming fascinated with each new project.The graphic design and marketing industries work hand in hand trying to influence perceptions through messaging and images. Since I started work with Logan Gattis designs I am enhancing my skills by marketing globally and studying trends from all types of industries.
What’s totally different about this job versus your previous gigs?
Its a completely different “kettle of fish”. It is not your run of the mill 9 to 5 office job. Logan Gattis Designs is an extremely fun and flexible place to work. It is a start-up company with a corporate mentality. There are big plans in our future and I am excited to be part of them. It is fantastic to get the opportunity to work with such great minds all around the globe. Today for example, I worked with creative designers from Dubai, Colombia and even back home in Ireland!
We take great pride in having a strong personal connection with our clients, we always love the happy hour follow up meetings! Also, nevermind the monthly staff meetings wakeboarding on Lake Travis!
If Hollywood made a movie about your life. who would play you?
Colin Farrell, no one else!
Are you Batman or Robin?
Have to say Batman, I don’t have superpowers (yet!) but I try to achieve amazing things in life. I always like to think of myself as a leader in business and sport. Not be cheesy, but I like to help people in any way I can in life and as my grandfather used say “Ni ceart go cur le cheile”, which in English translates to “there is no strength without unity.”
What would people be surprised to learn about you?
I love to cook. Obviously growing up in and around food I have a diverse palate. I enjoy creating my own recipes. In Ireland we are spoiled with the freshest produce in the world but I love trying food from different cultures. Inevitably, I found myself evolving into a Taco fanatic since moving to Austin. don’t know how I ever lived without them! Working with Logan Gattis Designs has allowed me to enhance my knowledge of cultural cuisines whilst conducting market research for clients in a variety of continents.
Well, Keith. Lucky for you, we also love tacos here at Logan Gattis Designs. Especially if they come in a Torchy’s bag! As a matter of fact, that will likely be the place of our next staff meeting. Go ahead and mark your calendar. 🙂
Breathe. Live. Laugh. Love.
