Guido Diaz, Traffic Manager.
From getting projects done with his organizational skills to keeping the team smiling with his great sense of humor, Guido is the go-to person to keeping things moving at S4.
Guido grew up in Jacksonville after moving from Colombia in 2006 and has been a sad Jaguars fan ever since. He graduated from UNF with a double major in Marketing & Business Management while working at Apple. (According to him, he’s not a Genius, just a fairly smart guy.)
In his role as Traffic Manager, Guido likes to bring solutions to problems in creative and effective ways. It’s important to him to understand all the moving parts of what’s happening, who it affects and how in order to come up with a plan that will result in user-friendly solutions.
Four Quick Questions
What’s it like to work at a Marketing Agency?
Working at a marketing agency, to me, is a lot like doing a puzzle which keeps adding a piece right before you finish. Just when you’ve figured out one challenge, another comes up and makes you quickly regroup and create a new strategy to solve it. It keeps me on my toes.
What’s a fun fact most people don’t know about you?
Up until age 12 I lived in Pasto, a city in southwestern Colombia, located 5 miles away from the most active volcano in the country. As scary as it might sound, it’s mostly a beautiful mountain. My family and I have luckily (knocks on wood) never had a major incident, other than a few quakes and ash.
What’s your favorite movie?
I wish I had a deep reason for why I like the movies I do but being a kid at heart, I enjoy movies mostly just for fun. The Harry Potter movies will always hold a special place on my list and films like Despicable Me & The Minion movies crack me up – so any of those!
How do you stay on top of the latest trends?
I learn best by doing and I do a lot – everything – in the digital world. I try to understand the why behind new product features and their benefits to users when they are introduced. On top of that, I frequent tech sites and read expert analysis on the industry’s latest and greatest.
