Alex Hedstrom, Manager of Video


What team are you on and what is your role/job title?

I’m the Manager of Video, and I head the Marketing Production team in DealerOn’s Marketing Dept.

How does your team/role contribute to the success of DealerOn?
We are responsible for creating marketing content for DealerOn, specifically videos and blog posts.

What do you think makes DealerOn different OR what sets DealerOn apart from other players in the space?
DealerOn never rests on its laurels – always striving to push the industry forward and give our clients something they didn’t even know they wanted.

What do you like most about working at DealerOn?
From day one, my favorite thing about DealerOn has always been my co-workers. There are some truly amazing people who work here, and I feel lucky to know them.

What is a fun fact about you that people don’t know?
People may or may not know that I have a lot of tattoos. But what people probably don’t know is that I got most of them for free, because I used to be a “shop guy” at a tattoo shop. I booked appointments, took payments, sterilized equipment, etc. And as a major perk of the job, I got tattooed a lot.

What are you motivated by?
Pizza.

How do you feel about pineapple on pizza?

Haha! i would never turn down pineapple pizza. My go-to is a bacon and sweet pepper pie from Giuseppi’s in Rockville.

What are you passionate about?
My lifelong passion has been for film / filmmaking. I was the kind of kid who preferred old movies instead of cartoons. I pride myself on having a deep knowledge of movie trivia. I even felt driven from an early age to make movies. I’ve never found any work more gratifying than making movies. I’ve had the opportunity to work on TV shows, indie films, Hollywood movies, commercials, and even a couple personal projects. I feel lucky that I’ve been able to make a living doing the job I love most.

Who inspires you?
My dad inspires me. Growing up, he taught me to seek happiness and personal fulfillment over material things.

We’re hiring! Check out our job board.


If you could meet anyone from history, who would it be?
I don’t know if this counts, but I wish I could have seen Black Sabbath play in the early 70s with young Ozzy.

Do you have any serious hobbies or interests outside of work? What do you like to do in your free time?
Music has played a big role in my life since I was young. Seeing live music, discovering new music, and even playing music. I’m not a particularly gifted musician, and I probably have questionable taste, but music, simply put, is my happy place.

Do you have any unusual phobias?
I’m one of those people who is grossed out by objects with holes all over them.

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
Flight, which is ironic since I’m afraid of heights. But you have to follow your heart.
