Every Team Needs One: Brett Schwickerath

Every Team Needs One: Brett Schwickerath

We were very excited to announce that Brett Schwickerath is the VGM Forbin Employee Spotlight for the month of December 2021 and our final spotlight of 2021! Brett adds incredible value to every project he touches each day and is a great teammate. We cannot thank him enough for continuing to make each project better!

We interviewed Brett and this is what he had to say:

  1. How long have you been working at VGM Forbin?
    I've been working at VGM Forbin since June 2017, so about 4 1/2 years.

  2. What is your role at VGM Forbin?
    I am a Frontend UX Developer, and I also help our team out whenever they need me.

  3. What's your favorite thing about your job?
    My favorite thing about my job is the opportunity to learn and try new things to better our product.

  4. If you could share one thing to a current client about VGM Forbin, what would it be?
    Things are only going to get better as we optimize our processes and enhance our products.

  5. An interesting fact you may not know about me:
    I once traveled to 7 countries in Europe in one month!

  6. Most importantly, if you’re stranded on an island what is one thing you would keep on you?
    I don't know, all my answers would be super utilitarian and boring like a crate full of flares, or a solar charger and an electric lighter, or like a year's supply of drinking water. I'm not going to read a book for 3 days then die of dehydration LOL.

  7. Last, but not least: Cats, dogs or both?
    I like both. I grew up with too many dogs (2 German Shepherds, 3 Chocolate Labs) so I've had my fill of dogs. My wife and I currently have a small, 14-year-old dog named Charlie and he's the best boy ever. But I also like how chill cats are. Overall, they're both cool.

Here’s Why a Couple of Colleagues from VGM Forbin Think Brett is Amazing:

Here is why Philipp thinks Brett should be VGM Forbin’s employee spotlight, “Brett is irreplaceable in the developer world. He is super helpful, always ready to give advice, or just fix stuff. He is super talented and is keeping us at the forefront of the technology.”

Jade agrees, “I don't think I can properly put into words just how wonderful of a team member Brett is. He does so much for the VGM Forbin development team, and I couldn't do my job without him. He is my go-to when I need help in deciding what is a better user experience, or when I need help with basic interfacing things. He works on a lot of high-priority projects, and he gives 100% detail on every one of them. I love that he isn't afraid to give his feedback on what did or didn't go right with a project/process, and he is a staple when we break down super custom projects. He helps his fellow team members be better developers, including me. Every team needs a Brett.”

And Josh said, “For always being a beast in the development of new products and always being willing to help someone out with any styling question.”

Thank you, again, Brett!

What an awesome way to conclude our year! We’d like to sincerely thank Brett for what he brings to the table.

Keep following our blog and we’ll see who will start the year with earning VGM Forbin’s Spotlight for January.
