Sometimes you start working at Billtrust in one position and end up in another. That’s a good thing here, because it means you’re hardworking, talented, and everyone wants you on their team! No one knows this better than our latest employee to hit the spotlight, Brenden Bowman. Brenden started at Billtrust a little over a year ago in a sales-related position, and on March 1st of this year he joined the training team and began a new role as a Sales Trainer. Here are a few more things you may not know about Brenden.
1. What is your favorite vacation destination?
My favorite vacation destination is anywhere outside of Illinois. My wife and I are big on adventure and exploring new places. Our dream vacation is to rent a camper and road trip around the US.
2. Who is one of your heroes?
There are many people that I look up to, but the biggest influencers in my life are my parents. They have always believed in me and encouraged me to never be afraid of taking risks. I appreciate how they allowed me to carve my own path, make mistakes, and to just figure things out on my own. Their support and unconditional love really helped shape me into the father and professional I am today.
3. What is your favorite part of your job?
I get so much gratification when I see the work I put out positively impact those I work with. To be given the opportunity to help others achieve their goals is really awesome.
4. As a child, what did you want your adult profession to be?
Since I was a little tike, I’ve loved cooking. I wanted to be a chef and own a food truck.
5. What is something interesting about you that everyone at the office might not know?
I love food and consider myself a true foodie. Ironically though, I have a strange allergy to a molecule called alpha-gal, which is found in beef. So, no steaks for me. It’s a real tragedy.
