Ollie Wilson is the Account Director/Lion Tamer at Fuel Integrated. We asked him to share a few things about himself and life at Fuel.
What does a typical day look like for you and what are you currently working on?
Other than preparing for the inevitable zombie apocalypse, a typical day involves a lot of project management, chasing down client approvals/feedback and prospecting/forecasting.
I help clients plan their next move as well as deliver their current inflight projects.
I am currently working on a new starter onboarding campaign for Nike – to help them more effectively welcome and manage their new starters. This project is an evolution of a similar one we helped them deliver with great success to onboard and nurture their athletes.
If you could switch jobs with someone, anyone, who would it be?
Elon Musk, because I would get to be a genius, billionaire and all-round complete nutter – all at the same time.
How do you recharge at home?
Sleep and do my best to avoid Love Island.
What movie or novel character do you most identify with?
John McClane – not because I’m an out of control cop who doesn’t do anything by the book, but because I love car chases and hate rogue states/terrorist organizations.
When are you the happiest?
When I’m climbing mountains in the middle of nowhere.
What characteristic do you most admire in others?
Respect for others.
What one memory do you most treasure?
Proposing to my fiancé on a balcony overlooking the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
What super power would you like to have and why?
Unaided human flight. Because I don’t like Ryanair and can’t afford to fly first class on any airline.
What would a “perfect” day look like for you?
In the immortal words of 50 Cent, I would like my only problem in a day to be “deciding what whip to drive by what match my clothes”. That and enjoying a cold beer whilst overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
