28 Sep Pegasus CEO Matthew Tucker Interviews Perry Green
Matthew Tucker: Hello everyone, and thank you again for joining us for Meet The Employee With The CEO. Today, we have the pleasure having Perry here with us. How are you doing today, Perry?
Perry Green: Very good. How are you?
Matthew: Good. Great. Nice, hot day. So, we’ll get started. You’ve probably seen some of these. Please don’t blame me for the questions. These are submitted by your peers. So I am completely innocent in most of them. So we’ll move forward. Perry, you’ve been here for just over three months mark, a couple about a week and a half ago. So congratulations on that.
Perry: Thank you.
Matthew: Yeah. Been hearing some great things and we’ve got some great future path for you. So keep up the great work.
Perry: Great. Thanks.
Matthew: Yep, sure. To start off, why don’t you just take a minute and tell us a little bit about yourself.
Perry: Yeah. So I was born in Pennsylvania. I’ve grown up here my entire life. I started building computers when I was 12 and it kind of took off from there. So, here I am. That’s about it. Computers have always been an interest. So, this is kind of a dream job.
Matthew: Brief. Excellent. And it shows in your work. You can definitely see the passion. All right. So now the fun part, the questions. Ready?
Matthew: Are you sure?
Matthew: Okay. What is the most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done?
Perry: Spontaneous. I’ve gone on a couple road trip spontaneously, just down to North Carolina and Tennessee. That’s fun.
Matthew: Like just pack it up and took off?
Perry: Packed it up and went…I have a friend there. So he just said, “Come on down,” and and then I went.
Matthew: Make sure you give us enough time of PTO next time you want to do that, all right?
Perry: All right, will do.
Matthew: All right. Next one is, what words of wisdom would you pass on to your childhood self? That is deep.
Perry: My childhood self. That is deep. That one is a good one. I think, probably, my favorite quote helped me a lot. It’s by Marcus Aurelius and it says, “How ridiculous and how strange it is to be surprised by anything which happens in life.”
Matthew: That’s a good one. That’s a real good one. Good. Who is your idol?
Perry: Oh, my idol. That’s a good one.
Matthew: And do you want to be a copy of him or her?
Perry: I’m a big fan of Steve Wozniak. I don’t know if I’d put him at idol status. I’m trying to think of who else might be on the list. That’s all I can think of for now.
Matthew: It’s good. If you are in a bad mood, do you prefer to be left alone or have someone to cheer you up?
Perry: Definitely left alone.
Matthew: I’m going to note that over. Good. Excellent. This is the HR stuff. If you had three wishes, what would you wish for?
Perry: Oh, that one’s tough. Three wishes. And this is hard, because I have a lot of stuff I want, but I could end world hunger. So, we’ll put that one on top of the list. We’ll end world hunger first. Secondly…
Matthew: Go for the selfish ones.
Perry: Yeah, then I would get a Supra. And I don’t know, win the lottery probably.
Matthew: What’s the strangest thing in your refrigerator?
Perry: I don’t…people call it strange but I like sparkling water. So there’s like three different flavors in there.
Matthew: Okay. I don’t think it’s strange but, all right. What was your favorite toy growing up?
Perry: I don’t know. I had one of those electric four-wheelers I used to drive around in our basement. So that one’s probably top of the list.
Matthew: Good. If you could erase one event from history, which one would you erase? I don’t even know about that question.
Perry: One event from history. Like it never happened?
Perry: Or it’s just no one knows about it.
Matthew: Just get rid of it. Never happened.
Perry: Never happened. That’s a tough one. Let’s go with JFK assassination. Just because I was curious to see how it turn out.
Matthew: Yeah, right. A lot of things would change.
Matthew: If you were invited to attend Hogwarts, which Hogwarts house would you choose? Now, you have to be a Harry Potter fan to understand that one.
Perry: Yeah. I’d say Gryffindor, probably.
Matthew: Would you rather diss the last one here so we’ll get you off the hot seat? Would you rather be able to control time or be able to know what other people are thinking time?
Perry: Time for sure. Hands down.
Matthew: I’m with you on that one. Good. Hey, well, Perry thanks for being a great sport. Thanks for being a great part of the team here at Pegasus. We look forward to the many years to come to get to know you even more. And here’s a good start for everybody else out there.
Matthew: Have a good day. Thank you.
Perry: You too.
