Oh my word, is it time for method profiles again? Yes it is! Look for this special feature whenever I feel like putting it up, ok? Don't get all pushy with me. If I don't feel like it, I ain't puttin' it up! So there... Oh alright, how about Tuesdays and Thursdays? Will that work. Great!
Today we have Andrea Freedman! It sounds like she holds the money strings over at method, so let's get real cozy-like with her, ok? (Hey, I got a root canal to pay for here! Ok, so don't give me that shameful eye...)
1+ Your name, please? And do you have a nickname at method?
2+ What was your first method lust?
I loved the daily shower spray at the time I joined the company, but I have since moved on to a new lust—the wood for good products, because I love walking into my almond-scented home after the hardwood floors have been cleaned.
3+ What brought you to method, the company? (How did you become interested in a career with method?)
I had never heard of method until a recruiter told me about it, but the more people I met, the more I appreciated the values, spirit and passion behind the brand, and wanted to be part of it.
4+ What is your title/dept. at method, and what is it you do there? How long have you been with method?
I am the chief financial person against dirty. I joined method in July, 2004. I oversee finance and accounting, as well as legal, IT, and a department called “People and Environment” which is method’s version of HR.
5+ What is the biggest thing you are currently doing, besides using method products, to help out the environment?
My husband and I love to travel, so I offset our carbon for airline travel.
6+ Who's the last person you've turned onto method?
My real estate broker. (I’ve been looking for a new home, and am thrilled every time I walk in to an open house and see it “staged” with method hand soaps in the kitchen and bathrooms!)
7+ Which one best describes you as a person? Pink Grapefruit, French Lavender, Cucumber, or Go Naked?
Check back on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the next method profile!
