60 seconds with Brian Finnegan

 

60 seconds with... (3)Name: Brian Finnegan

Title: V/Xline Application Support Consultant

What is your favourite thing about your job/working at Intact? I love the people. You can only do so much without the support of your team and your organisation but, most importantly, the companies and the people with whom we work with every day. 

 

 

Are you a morning person or a night owl? Night Owl or an in-between, permanently exhausted Ostrich?

If you could visit any country in the world, where would you go and why? Myanmar (Burma). We did a project in college about it and it’s a breathtakingly beautiful country with an interesting history.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why? Fly. I’d be back and forth across the Atlantic more than Aer Lingus.

What's the best concert or live performance you have ever attended? OutKast at Creamfields in 2001. The Prodigy, David Gray, Underworld and 50 Cent are honourable mentions. 

What's your go-to karaoke song? David Gray – Please Forgive Me or Coolio – Gangsta's Paradise. 

If you had a time machine, which era would you visit and why? About 50/75 years from now because I would love to be able to travel through space.  

Best TV series you have ever watched? Tough one. The Wire, The Shield, Sons of Anarchy and Breaking Bad are some of my favourites. I cannot choose one. 

If you could instantly become an expert in something, what would it be? Playing the piano or the ability to mediate global conflicts to a peaceful resolution. 

What's the weirdest food you've ever eaten? Gator tail (Alligator tail) at Dirty Dick’s Crab House in the Outer Banks. 

​​​​Lastly, if you could swap lives for a day with any person past or present, who would it be? Jurgen Klopp when he called Sir Alex Ferguson in the middle of the night when we finally won the league after 30 long years! Or John F Kennedy to stop his assassination, as I think he may have been trying to set humanity on a better path than the one we ended up on.

I joined Intact’s marketing team in October 2023. My academic journey began at the University of Liverpool, where I studied English language and literature. Feeling that one degree wasn’t enough, I stayed and earned a Master's degree in creative and critical writing. During my studies, I wrote for various platforms, including a student newspaper and a famous Liverpool attraction. I knew I wanted to pursue a career where I could write daily, leading me to explore the world of content marketing. At Intact, I compile and write content for our website, upsell campaigns, customer newsletter, and manage our social media channels. The best part of my job is the opportunity to interview colleagues, seeking their insights and knowledge for valuable content, and that each completed task is followed by ten uncompleted ones. Outside of work, I’ll be at the gym, out for a run (jog), or exploring markets in London with friends.
