Today, we are shining the Spotlight on Nick Wheeler. Read on to learn more about this incredible team player who also happens to be an amazing grillmaster!
Meet Nick Wheeler, Strategies Manager
How long have you been at TopSpot and what do you do here?
I’ve worked at TopSpot for about 5.5 years (6 years in February) and throughout that time I have held a variety of roles.
I started as an SEM Specialist where I managed the Paid Search Advertising for a variety of clients. After about 2 years, I moved into the role of Paid Search Strategies Manager. There, I assisted our Teams by making sure that our PPC strategies were aligning with our client’s business goals and producing lead-driven results. I’ve recently transitioned to a sales role where I’ve begun selling TopSpot’s services.
What is your proudest achievement at TopSpot?
I don’t have one achievement that I’m most proud of but I am proud when I hear from a client that we’re making an impact on their business. I am also pleased when I see a teammate have success with their clients and they get energized as a result. I love what we do because it really does make an impact on our clients’ businesses and lives.
Getting feedback from a client or seeing a team member experience that gratitude from our clients will always be my favorite part of what we do.
What’s one professional skill you are currently working on?
One of the parts of TopSpot’s culture that I really value is to always be learning. In my professional career, I haven’t always been the biggest reader but I’m trying to change that. I also tune into webinars or listen to audiobooks when I can.
What do you do when not at the office?
Outside of the office I love to spend time with friends and family. My wife and I just had our first son, Cayden, who is now 5 months old so he pretty much consumes most of our free time now.
Outside of that I also love to:
- Texas BBQ (I even have an Instagram account about my grilling adventures, Texas Pellet Smoking)
- Play or watch sports, especially basketball
- Travel (The second picture below was taken in Denver, Colorado and the third photo is from our trip to Barcelona)
- Fishing, hunting or anything outdoors
- Trying new foods and beers (I especially enjoy Lone Pint in Magnolia)
Who inspires you and why?
My whole life I’ve always been a basketball fanatic. With “The Last Dance” just recently coming out, Michael Jordan is top of mind. His dedication, work ethic, and commitment to ensure that he and his team are successful is admirable.
Here are a few things Nick’s Team Members have to say about him:
I’ve had the pleasure of getting to work closely with Nick during his five years at TopSpot. Nick has a profound sense of teamwork and is always willing to jump into any scenario where he is needed. He gives of his time without expectation and his entrepreneurial mindset has helped us refine our processes to stay ahead competitively. Nick’s effectiveness for our clients and team comes from his ability to balance strategic thinking with practical execution and an ability to adapt quickly. I’m proud to call Nick a teammate and I appreciate all he’s done for me, our clients, and TopSpot.Josh Blankenship, Nick’s Manager
Thank you so much for all of your help with my accounts the past couple of months! You consistently go out of your way to help other people and brainstorm strategy for accounts. You truly care about the success of your peers and the success of every client and it shows.
Thank you so much for taking the time to teach the conversion optimization specialists more about paid search and for answering our many questions! We really appreciate it!
Nick helped our team with a client in the last few weeks – everything from advising on the relationship to the program specifics. He has sat in on the meetings, helped create the budget timeline and even went to their home city to see them face-to-face! Thank you so much for your help, we appreciate it so much!
