Andrew Grojean came to Intouch Solutions as an intern in 2011 with limited social-media experience and zero healthcare experience. He quickly excelled and was hired full-time after graduation in 2012.
Less than a year later Intouch promoted him to social-media analyst. This year he was named social-media manager, leading social-media technology and support efforts on the social-media insights and analytics team.
“Andrew [has shown exceptional growth] in a rapidly growing organization,” one judge noted.
Accomplishments include work on pioneering and award-winning social-media programs, including Sanofi's GoMeals, Discuss Diabetes and Diabetapedia.
“Andrew is at the cutting edge of our business and is on track to leverage his experience more broadly,” a second judge said.
Colleagues described him as an exceptionally talented and enthusiastic young man and an absolute joy to work with.
“Andrew is my go-to for all social media–related questions, help and best practices,” one colleague said. “And with a smile on his face [be breaks down] complicated subject matter so that I understand how and why I should be doing something.”
Intouch's director of social media, insights and analytics called him an “A-team player,” noting his client-first focus, fresh perspective and 100% dedication to every project, challenge and task.
