Since its inception, Trilix has always been on a fast track of growth. Last year, we opened a second office in Birmingham, Alabama, and last month, we moved buildings, now in the heart of Birmingham’s business sector. Located in the Vintage Building, we are happy to have a new home with more space and to welcome two new employees — Communications Specialist Keith Swofford and Project Manager Matt Waters.

Originally from the Birmingham area, Keith comes to Trilix from Alabama Credit Union where he was a member of the marketing department. Joining our Communications/Public Relations team, Keith is looking forward to serving clients with his public relations, social media and copywriting skills. “I’ve always enjoyed meeting new people and finding unique and creative ways to solve their problems,” Keith says. He graduated from the University of Alabama, contributing to the Auburn–Alabama and SEC office fun. Roll Tide!

Matt, a Suwanee, Georgia, native (Go Dawgs!), attended Samford University in Birmingham. After graduating, Matt took two part-time jobs — one at WVTM 13 and the other at a startup called University Fancards, later deciding to join full-time with Fancards. We’re looking forward to seeing his experience in marketing and research shine on the accounts management team here at Trilix. Matt says he loves building relationships and is excited to work with clients to manage and deliver projects with precision. “I’m very happy to be a part of Trilix and couldn’t be more excited to get started and to get to know everyone,” Matt says.

We’re happy to have both Keith and Matt on the team! Read some fun facts about them both below.

Check out our new space, and stop by to say hello if you’re in the Birmingham area — 310 Richard Arrington Jr. Blvd N, Suite 200.

Fun Facts About Matt

Favorite type of food or restaurant?

Italian and Mexican are divine. Salvatore’s is some of the best Italian in Birmingham and a favorite of mine, and you can’t go wrong with Chuy’s.

If you didn’t work in this industry, what career path would you choose?

I’ve always been interested in most everything medical, so a doctor of some sort would be pretty cool! Airplanes are pretty fascinating too, so I think I’d also enjoy being a pilot.

Which fictional character would be the most fun to meet in real life?

Forrest Gump

What do you like to do in your free time?

I love throwing a football, playing baseball with family or friends, reading and keeping track of the Georgia Bulldogs.

Any unique hobbies?

Playing golf! I’m not fantastic at it. But a bad day of golf is almost always better than a day with no golf! (Fun fact, I won my kindergarten “Masters” putting contest green jacket and all, and I am still pretty proud of that.)

Name three things you would bring if you were stranded on a desert island.

A solar-powered satellite phone, a very large tarp (rainwater collection + shelter) and a pretty large hunting knife (Crocodile Dundee style) seem like decent options.

Cats or dogs?

I like them all, but big dogs are my favorites, then cats, then smaller dogs.

You can only watch two movies the rest of your life. What are they?

Wedding Crashers and Happy Gilmore

Tell me something no one could guess about you.

I love a good, harmless but slightly excessive prank.
