I’m Misty Derek,

Director of Business Development

at Follow the Eyes, Cincinnati

Who am I?

I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter and a friend. I have been married to my husband (Rod) for 21 years, have two beautiful daughters, Brianna (24) & Brinly (12) and I now have a son-in-law (Andrew). We spend a lot of time at the soccer fields with Brinly and typically have “family” Sundays at our house watching NFL, cooking out and playing games.

What do I do here?

I build relationships, trust and partnerships with people and their companies to help their businesses grow and become successful. I give clients TIME back so they can focus on their business.

Morning or night person?

Definitely a morning person even though I may complain about getting up!

What gets me out of bed in the morning?

My family and helping others.

Favorite kind of cake?

Pineapple upside-down cake.

Booth or table?

For sure a booth

Biggest pet-peeve?

Would be my towels folded in different directions in my linen closet along with dirty bathrooms! Dirty bathrooms say a lot about a person and a business.

What do I love about my job?

I love my job is because I can help people and have an impact on their life. Helping others…is my motivation! Anyone that knows me, knows I will do what’s right for them, their company and families. The people I work with are humans, have families and people working for them. They have a huge responsibility to their family and employees which means I have a huge responsibility to them and to maximize every dollar they spend!
