Starting her career in TV production, Sarah Pomerleau found herself drawn to the PixMob world after attending a show at the Festival d'été de Québec. Just a few months later, she joined the company as a project manager.
Today, she is the bridge between our international clients and internal departments, collaborating closely across functions to deliver memorable fan experiences at shows worldwide.
We sat down with Sarah to take a closer look at her multi-faceted role as project manager, unpack her everyday challenges, and learn how she unwinds after work.
1. Could you share your career trajectory and how you landed the project manager role at PixMob?
A couple of years ago, I went to see P!nk at the Festival d'été de Québec, where I met Sophie (Executive Producer at PixMob). That was my first experience at a PixMob event, and it was mind-blowing!I walked away feeling that that was the sort of technology I could see myself being a part of. A few months later when I learned that PixMob was hiring, it was an easy decision. I connected with Sophie, and here I am.
My PixMob journey started as a fan experience at an event and came a full circle when I joined the company as a project manager to deliver the same“wow” moments at shows around the globe.
2. Describe your typical workday? What do you enjoy the most about your role?
In our industry, every day is a new challenge, given the dynamic nature of our work. The beauty of my work is that no two workdays look the same.
I improvise, problem-solve, and deliver on deadlines every day, which makes my work highly rewarding. My days are spent working with clients and helping our team on-site at events put on a great show.
I enjoy building relationships with our fantastic clients and enabling them to deliver an immersive fan experience. When I was a teenager, I worked for my family-owned business part-time in a client-facing capacity, which is why I love building rapport with customers.
3. How do you collaborate with internal teams to execute a project?
In my role, I collaborate across departments to ensure we are well-coordinated and playing as a team to guarantee the best outcome for our clients. In my experience, everyone at PixMob helps each other and goes the extra mile to make project delivery as smooth as possible.
