In May 2016, it will be 15 years since Andy Aguirre became part of the Ellis family. After joining Ellis, Andy got his start in our stock room, picking and cleaning parts. He soon moved onto sales in the Parts Department,, and now currently works as a customer service representative in the Parts Department. A team player through and through, Andy helps out wherever needed, especially in the shipping department, from loading and unloading trucks, to prepping and handling shipping logistics.
Part of Andy’s success in customer service can be attributed to his gregarious nature. Even outside of work, Andy is introducing himself to complete strangers through his newest hobby: podcasting.
A self-proclaimed podcast junkie, Andy and a fellow Ellis coworker decided to launch their own podcast earlier this year. Already on their 16th episode, they discuss any topic under the sun, from religion and politics to movies and other current topics. The name of their show, Freeform Network, perfectly describes the loose feel of the program.
By maintaining an open mindset, Andy and his co-hosts set out to have fun above everything else, and maybe let off some steam. “We’re not experts on anything,” says Andy. “But we like to give our opinion on everything.”
When he’s not podcasting, Andy can be found enjoying classic pieces of cinema. He tends to enjoy older movies, like Citizen Kane, Casablanca and The Searchers. Right now, though, he’s into Westerns. Tune into his podcast some time – perhaps he’ll tell you why!
