GROUNDFLOOR is growing! We've just welcomed Andrew Mandel as our Investor Relations Manager. Andrew comes to us from BitPay where he served as the Enterprise Relationship Manager. Prior to BitPay, he was a Technical Business Analyst with CoStar Real Estate Manager.

Andrew received his BBA in Management Information Systems from the Terry School of Business at the University of Georgia.

He joins the marketing department where he will manage front-facing relationships with investors and borrowers. Additionally, he will support marketing initiatives and build the brand by creating educational content, inspiring the customer journey, and posting on the blog from time-to-time.

More, we introduce him as the first of our Meet the Team series of blog posts published to help you get to know our team better. Arthur and Lauren are excited to have him in the  marketing department because he's a true foodie. He enjoys self-directed eating tours of Atlanta in his free time. He also enjoys playing tennis, softball, and golf; and recently his bowling team won the league championship. A Georgia alum, you can find him in Athens on Saturdays watching the Dawgs.

If his morning espresso isn't doing the job, he leans on this quote for inspiration, "If you've got everything under control, you're not moving fast enough."

Cheers to that Andrew! We'll get you a Newscastle at the next after-work happy hour.
