Employee Spotlight: Matthew Ferguson, Proposal Manager
1. How did you come to do what you do? Was this a lifelong goal?
I knew I always wanted to do something in Marketing whether it was advertising or sales, but I got a job at Weston Solutions as a Proposal Coordinator, and it has stuck with me ever since!
2. What do you enjoy most about working in Marketing?
Honestly, working in proposals you get a little bit of an adrenaline rush, especially when working on a tight deadline. I also like seeing a product being produced from start to finish. I am also competitive, so I like to beat our competition when we go after Prime proposals.
3. What motivates you every day?
My family motivates me!
4. What makes you unique and different?
I always hate this type of question because I think I am just a normal person. I wake up every day and try to do my best at whatever I do that day!
5. What are your favorite types of projects to work on?
I really enjoy working on group efforts. Of course, that depends on the team I am working with. When you are working with a really good team, you have great brainstorming sessions that can be a lot of fun. Usually, the best products come out of these types of situations.
6. What is your future career goals?
At some point in the future maybe becoming a Director and running my own group.
7. What is the best career lesson you have learned so far?
To value yourself and know your self-worth. Work hard and it will pay off in the long run.
8. What do you enjoy the most about working at Arora Engineers, Inc.?
Building relationships with my coworkers is what I enjoy most about working at Arora. I think relationships with coworkers is crucial in being successful and it provides opportunities in the future. It’s also great seeing proposals that we’ve won, and the projects being executed successfully by our team.
9. Do you have a favorite memory from working at Arora?
The holiday parties at Arora are always a great time.
10. Outside of work, what do you like to do for fun?
I retrain off the track thoroughbred racehorses. When they do not make it in the racing business, they need new careers, so I help with that process. I mostly train them for three-day events.
