Asif, can you tell me a little bit about yourself?
I’d love to! I was born on a cold, windy night in Chicago circa 1982. Regan was president, the Lakers won another championship, and Nike unveiled the Original Air Force 1 shoe… in short, it was a glorious year.
Today, as I look back at my 34 years, I’ve learned and experienced a lot–from managing the finances of celebrities, selling real-estate overseas, to more recently experiencing my first successful exit. But the most exciting times include spending time with my nieces, nephews, and family.
Why Devise Interactive?
One word… potential. I see the quality of work, quality of personnel, leaders, and it has nowhere to go but up, and I feel as though my experience will help guide them to the promise land.
What do you hope to gain from working at Devise Interactive?
Group success. I want everyone at the Devise team to experience the success and feeling of achievement within each client engagement and each moment.
What contributions do you hope to bring to Devise Interactive?
Experience. Having been a part of a successful agency exit, I’ve made mistakes and learned from them over the past 9 years. I hope to bring those learnings to Devise to help avoid and alleviate business and production challenges.
What would be a huge “success” to you?
A huge success to me would be making Devise an agency every client can’t live without!
