Steve G. Hennigs
Siteimprove, Inc.
Senior Product Specialist

What do you spend most of your time doing at work?
My day is always a bit varied. A part of my day will be spent reaching out to new prospects, demoing the Siteimprove product and attempting to close sales. Another large part of my day is spent training the Siteimprove’s sales staff. I create content and lead meetings around new functionality in our tools and also mentor one new hire about every 6 months to ensure they know the ropes when it comes to selling our tools. Finally I have the responsibility of communicating with our development team in Copenhagen, Denmark when it comes to new functionality that the US and Canadian markets prioritize for our next release cycle. It is a full day, but I love what I do.

What are the three most valuable things about LMA-MN for you?
As a service provider the networking opportunities are really valuable of course. Having said that I have learned so much about how legal marketing works by attending the monthly programs and reading the newsletter as well. Last but certainly not least the people that make up LMA MN are really great and I am lucky to be part of such a wonderful organization.

What is your favorite holiday?
Thanksgiving. It is awesome to hang out with family, eat too much food and get in a great nap.

If someone gave you $20, what would you buy?
I would probably buy a book. I really enjoy reading (mostly boring business books) but have started getting in to Vince Flynn novels as well.

Who is your personal hero?
My personal hero is Jerry Rice. He was a wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers in the 80s and 90s. I really value hard work and passion. Rice is a pillar for both. He was never the most talented person on a football field but when his career was finished he was (and still is) considered the greatest received in NFL history due to his dedication.

What word do you most dislike?
Can’t. There is no place for that word in the English language.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Finding the woman of my dreams at a young age and somehow convincing her to spend the rest of her life with me.
