Up Close with Jeff Cassell, Group Production Director
My education: University of Central Florida, Communications
First job: Sports producer at WKIS-AM radio in Orlando
A day in the life of Winter Park’s group production director: I get here early and try to get my day organized before it gets busy. Attend various meetings, assist my staff with questions and issues, work on plans, schedules and initiatives. No two days ever seem alike.
What I want to accomplish at work this year: Helping Bonnier continue to move into and be successful in our digital platforms such as the iPad, while maintaining excellence with our printed product.
Favorite part of my job: Facing a challenge and conquering it.

Greatest challenge on the job: Having enough time to get everything accomplished that needs to be, on a daily basis.
My strongest assests: Determination and the desire to learn new things.
On my office walls: Blowups of magazine covers, my pets and one huge Dallas Cowboys banner!
Best day on the job to date: When Bonnier’s growth exploded into a major multimedia company.
Greatest advice for success: You have to have a great team. I am blessed with a talented and dedicated staff and a supportive boss. That teamwork also has to extend out to the various magazine teams and departments that you interact with.
