Welcome back to the Champion Spotlight series, where we speak with one of our current Marketo Engage Champions to learn more about their background, their favorite things to do in Marketo Engage, what they wanted to be when they grew up, and more! This time, we spoke with @Moni_Oloyede,  who is Sr. Marketing Operations Manager at Fidelis Cybersecurity, based in Bethesda, Maryland. Let's hear what Moni has to say! 


What was your first job?

I was a cashier at Mcdonald's when I was 14 years old.


What was your first role and initial reaction to the platform? 

My first job after college was with a cybersecurity company called Sourcefire - they were an early adopter of Eloqua. I think they were customer number five back in 2006 or 2007. I was managing the Eloqua instance and it was too cumbersome, so we decided to switch to Marketo Engage in 2008.


What is your favorite thing to do in Marketo and why?  

Data Management. I love having a clean, manageable database. It is the key to creating personalized user experiences.


Throughout your Marketo career, what are you most proud of? 

Using Marketo has made me a better marketer. Using A/B testing, dynamic content, personalization, etc. is great feedback from customers to tell you what is engaging content and what is not.


What piece of advice would you give to someone who is just starting a career with Marketo?

Join the Marketo Engage Community. There are a ton of brilliant minds that have contributed to the community. Almost any Marketo issue that you could run into is addressed in the community.


What did you want to be when you grew up?  

I wanted to be a lawyer growing up. But I took my first Civics class in high school and realized that law was super boring.


What is one goal you would like to achieve in your lifetime?  

My favorite hobby is weightlifting. I would love to be able to squat 300lbs.


Your house is burning down...what do you grab first? 

My dog, Charlie.


If someone gave you $5 million tomorrow, what would you do? 

Buy my Mom a house and donate the rest to charities that teach children technology skills and charities that support women in technology.


What is your hidden talent?

I’m an excellent baker.


What is your guilty pleasure?

Reality TV Show - My 600lb Life.


What is your most prized possession?

My iPhone – my life is in my phone. If I didn’t have it I would literally be lost!
