Employee Spotlight: Tony DeStefano

This month's Employee Spotlight is shining on 535media General Manager, Tony DeStefano.

Prior to joining the 535media team, Tony was an account executive at the Pittsburgh Business Times, focusing on banking and financial accounts and digital product activation.

"I had heard a lot about 535media and all of the innovative and exciting things that they were doing in the market," Tony said. "I was looking to get back into the digital marketing and web development side of the business, so I met with the 535media team and, luckily for me, it was a great fit!"

Tony's favorite part of his job is his team. "In my time here, I have had the opportunity to work with a lot of very smart and intellectually curious people," Tony said. "I've learned a lot and developed some great friendships."

Tony has 2 daughters - ages 4 and 2 - and  enjoys spending time with his family. He also enjoys golfing, running and Steelers and Penguins games.

One thing Tony's co-workers don't know about him is that he is terrified of heights and his bucket list includes taking a trip to Italy, learning to surf and golfing at Pebble Beach.
