Here at Glacier Media, our internal agency ecosystem is made up of 150+ folks.

It’s time for another edition of Team GMD Q&A. It’s kind of like Vogue’s 73 Questions. Instead, it’s in blog form and there are less than 10 questions – because you’re busy and we respect your time.

This week on Meet the Team GMD, we meet Alex Wu, our newest Paid Search specialist.

As a lifelong Vancouverite, it’s only natural that Alex is a foodie and a fitness buff. In fact, he’s always first in line for a new fried chicken joint and he was once so good at long-jump he was able to jump over the equivalent of 3 cars parked side-by-side. Now that is impressive! Read on to learn more about Alex. 

In a short paragraph, tell us a little bit about your role at GMD. What do you do on a daily basis:

As a Paid Search Specialist, what I do varies from day to day. However, my responsibilities include setting up new search campaigns on Google for clients and monitoring existing accounts to ensure that they are running efficiently. Additionally, I put together monthly reports to summarize how the accounts are doing on search.

Personal kryptonite:

Fried chicken is my kryptonite. Whenever a new fried chicken spot opens in the city, I’m already planning when to go try it out.

Hidden talent:

No matter how full I am, I’ll have always have room for dessert.


I’m a pretty active person so I try to find things to do year-round. I really enjoy working out at the gym, playing golf, and snowboarding.

What are you currently listening to?

A mix of Rich Brian, Joji, and Illenium.

One tip for managing multiple projects?

My tip is to write down important information and deadlines in a notebook to ensure that I can always refer to it if I feel like I’m forgetting something.

Favourite Vancouver coffee/brunch/ spot?

Paragon Tea Room. Not a huge fan of coffee so I drink tea instead.

Favourite quote?

“It’s not about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward.”
– Sylvester Stallone (Rocky Balboa)

If you had to give a TED talk, what would it be about?

Fitness and motivation.

Who inspires you the most and why?

My parents definitely inspire me the most. Immigrating and moving to a country where they didn’t have any family or relatives must have been challenging initially, but they were able to find a way to be successful.
