In celebration of our 40th Anniversary, we are highlighting some of the amazing team members who make the organization what it is! This week, we meet Faith Puffpaff… Faith works in the Quality Department at Prefix, helping to make sure that our “Excellence Is Expected” slogan is followed with every project. Lately, she’s also been printing a lot of 40th Anniversary vinyl graphics! One of her favorite projects was getting our entire fleet of vehicles looking good with our current Prefix logo. Faith enjoys music, and prefers the Big Band era and the vintage Jazz Crooners. She loves traveling within Michigan and enjoying sunsets over Lake Michigan from Muskegon. When it comes to food, Faith has always preferred her Mother’s cooking, but has a secret passion for Hungry Howie’s thin crust pizza with pineapple and pepperoni. She enjoys working on cars, and her Husband owns a 1993 Lincoln that they enjoy cruising in. When asked where she has always wanted to travel, she explained that she has ALWAYS wanted to visit Los Angeles and be on the Price Is Right. Faith…Come On Down!

Team Member of the Week! In celebration of our 40th Anniversary, we are highlighting some of the amazing team members who make the organization what it is! This week we learn more about Matt Arquette. Matt is a Software Engineer and part of the Research & Development team at Prefix. That’s right… super smart guy, and an integral part of what allows us to solve complex problems and challenges for our clients. One of Matt’s favorite projects was the Lincoln Navigator concept car that we built a couple years ago, which at the time was one of the most technologically challenging the organization had ever created. Matt is a passionate outdoorsman, finding ways to get outside regardless of the season, boating in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter. Matt loves music, listening to mostly Rock/Alternative, and…has been playing the drums since he was nine. He’s got a couple of fantastic aspirations when it comes to travel. Hawaii and Bora Bora! When we asked him about having lunch with anyone famous, he said Leonardo Da Vinci, because his knowledge and talents were so vast. Musician, Painter, Scientist, & Inventor. (Wow!) Matt’s favorite super heroes include IronMan and his Dads, Gary & Mike. Matt is an incredible part of the Prefix family, and involved in some of the coolest future technologies on the planet! And… speaking of family, all of us at Prefix would like to congratulate Matt and his Wife, Carly on the recent birth of their new Son. Congrats !!
