Ian Spector

Senior Account Executive

Aspirations and Goals as a Human Being:
Let’s find a way to make everyone have the kind of manners Texans do; Yes ma’am & yes sir are a way of life!


Experience, Education and Credentials:

I graduated with my BA in Marketing from Texas Tech University in 2011. First job was with an Auto Group running their Internet Department, which then lead me here to SG!


What do you like to do when you’re not working?

Most of my time away from the office is spent with my wife (Sydnee) and our three pups: Barrett, Lucy & Gamble. I’m also an avid hunter & love spending time with friends/family.


Favorite quote:

“Strive not to be a Success, but rather to be of Value” – Albert Einstein


Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us:
I’m an only child… Just kidding, that didn’t surprise anyone! I’ve never broken a bone, and plan on keeping it that way.

(Update as of Dec 2020: Still no broken bones!)


Tell us three things most people don’t know about you:
1) At 14, I turned down a completely restored 1979 Jeep CJ-7… because I wanted a Corvette instead. Yeah…I got 1997 Ford Ranger.

2) I’m always doing something; I can’t seem to sit still for very long!

3) Ironically (see #2), I love driving long distances. I have driven to the West Coast once & the East Coast twice. 6-8 hour drives are no bother.


Three words to best describe you:
Goofy, Ambitious, Tenacious


Anything else you want to share (family, hobbies, whatever)

Things that I have little to no knowledge of intrigue me. I enjoy the challenge of learning about what I don’t know from people that do!


What do you like most about Slate Group?
I am constantly surrounded with people (both in Sales & Production) that truly care about others. Working together to find a solution to one of our crazy idea, or trying to find ways to produce a better product are not anomalies; they are every day occurrences.


What do you like most about your role at Slate Group?
Without a doubt, my favorite part of my role here are the relationships I’m able to grow & have with my clients. The opportunity to be a part of their teams, and truly care about their brand is awesome. Internally, it’s the friendships and camaraderie. Whether its daily interaction or weekend golf outings, hanging with this team never gets old.


What drew you to Slate Group originally?
The company culture, and direction was an instant attraction. Print is not dead, and that is very obvious with how SG strives to be more for our clients.


What has been your favorite project at Slate Group?
I’ve had an amazing opportunity to be a part of numerous Music Education Associations. From strictly print to complete concept and design, being a part of the excitement and growth has been so cool!
