If you’ve been to the office or seen the back of one of our business cards, you know that Maddie Eberly plays a central role in the office. We are often asked about our 5-pound CEO (canine executive officer). Madeline (aka Maddie) is part cockapoo and part King Cavelier Spaniel, but all personality. So, we thought we’d let her speak for herself with a few questions.
Questions for Maddie
What are your responsibilities as CEO of Fang?
I’m in charge of morale and exercise around the office.
Do you have a management philosophy and/or style?
Rub my belly and take a nap.
What does your typical day look like?
I come in and say hi to everyone, then take a nap after my strenuous round of morning check-ins. I rally the troops for a walk, we eat lunch and I walk on the table to check out everyone’s meals.
