GOAT Spotlight: Austin Abhay

GOAT Spotlight: Austin Abhay

Welcome to our GOAT Spotlight series, where we proudly showcase the exceptional members of our team here at STN Digital.

As a social-first marketing agency, we launch brands and build highly engaged audiences all due to the incredible talent that thrives within our company.

We are very excited to introduce our next GOAT, Austin Abhay, who has been working at STN for over 2 years as a Senior Account Manager, but as of January, Austin has been promoted to Senior Project Manager! 

Austin has been an integral part of our company, helping keep great relationships with clients and forming strong bonds with coworkers. 

Check out why we love Austin so much!

Q: Can you tell us about your role/ your time here at STN Digital?

A: I’ve been an Account Manager at STN since August of 2021 and I’m very fortunate to get my career started off at such an amazing workplace. Simply put, I would describe my role as being the liaison between the client and the STN partnership. 

Q: What exactly does a senior account manager do at STN? 

A: I would say that our primary focus is on nurturing the relationship between the client and STN and ensuring all their needs are met. While the nature of our work is ever-evolving, our typical day-to-day tasks involve guiding projects to completion, brainstorming for upcoming milestones or events, and serving as the primary point of contact for the client.

Q: What is your favorite part of working at our company?

A:  My favorite part of STN is getting to work with some of the biggest names in the sports and entertainment industry. As a big sports fan, it’s surreal to think that the work I’m doing is for the same brands, leagues, and teams that I grew up watching and it’s amazing to see it all come to life. 

Q: What is a memorable/favorite project that you have worked on?

A: While it wasn’t a singular project, contributing to the launch of Thursday Night Football stands out as one of the most memorable experiences during my time here. Whether it was working late nights to cover games or ideating content ideas for social feeds, immersing myself in the sport I love made the experience thoroughly enjoyable.

Q: What has been your most memorable experience working at STN?

A: I probably speak for most of the company when I say this, but the highlight for me has to be both of the GOAT retreats. While a fully remote working schedule undeniably comes with its advantages, it was awesome meeting and spending time with the people I interact with every day in person.

Q: What’s a passion of yours outside of work and can you tell us about it?

A: During my free time, you can usually catch me experimenting with the latest food trends I’ve come across on TikTok or playing basketball with friends. Fun Fact –  I’m 0-3 in the championship rounds of my men’s league so trying to shake off this losing mentality and work on my game. 2024 loading…⏳

Q: What is your favorite social account to follow?

A: @PardonMyTake is the account that consistently keeps me entertained. They have a well-rooted understanding of pop culture and sports, which when coupled with their humor, results in the most amusing takes on various topics, whether delivered satirically or not. 

Q: What is at the top of your bucket list? 

A: Both of my parents are Laotian so I would love to go back and visit Laos with them sometime shortly.
