From Media to Media Relations: 3Points Welcomes Spencer Doar as Our New Content Strategist

You had a great run at John Lothian News — what were the key things you learned there?

What are you most excited about as you step into PR? And how do you think your journalism experience will help you?

What do you enjoy about the fintech industry?

What do you think are the key trends to look out for in fintech over the next year or two?

It’s football season, and we know you’re a Bears fan. If you had to compare members of the Bears lineup to Chicago fintech firms, which ones would you say are parallels and why?

  • Khalil Mack and Roquan Smith = Citadel — This is a performance comparison. The rest of the team (hedge funds) might not always be doing great, but at least we can count on these guys’ consistency.
  • Eddy Pineiro = TopStepTrader — One of the legends is that in his college days, Pineiro beat out hundreds of other kickers during an Alabama tryout. (Side note: Pineiro didn’t even end up taking the ‘Bama scholarship and went to Florida instead.) The same goes for the Bears: Eddy earned his spot as kicker in camp by proving himself, just like a hungry trader with a chip on his shoulder might prove himself with TopStep in order to join a team (get funding).
  • Trey Burton = MillerCoors (okay, not a fintech, but has a Chicago HQ) — For me he kind of embodies the motto ”great taste, less filling.” People are high on him (great taste), but what with injuries he never quite produces to my expectations (less filling). No wonder Chicago is drinking more Modelo…
  • Mitch Trubisky = any fresh faced startup — We think there’s something good here, we’re just not sure how it’s going to work out. Let’s see what revenues are like this year after a bit more seed funding, shall we?
