Sandy Caputo

Director of Marketing & Sales

Phone Number: (505) 275-6049

She literally does it all. She oversees the sales department, directs the editorial, edits the content, and gently maneuvers the stick and carrot to keep the workers moving, for not one, but three magazines, all while never missing a step as a devoted wife and mother of three active children- 1 boy (12) and 2 girls (6 and 7). If you have an empathetic bone in your body, you should be exhausted just from reading that—and not just because the sentence was awkwardly long. Her exact job title is still unclear, though plenty of suggestions.

Monica Fresquez

Account Representative

Phone Number: (505) 292-5644
Cell: 505-489-3285

Sandy may be the queen of the company, but Monica is the queen of the industry. If you work in this space and have attended even one trade show, you probably know her. If you don’t, you at least know of her. If you close your eyes and say HeadQuest, you’ll most likely find yourself picturing her face and if you say it three times, she might just appear out of thin air.

I wouldn’t suggest it though. She’s not one to be trifled with.

Kris Williams

Accounting

Phone Number: (505) 275-6049

Kris may be the bookkeeper for the most prominent publication in the industry, but you probably don’t know much about her, if anything at all. That’s ok. She prefers it that way.
Work is work, and life is everything else. Quiet, soft-spoken and maybe a touch enigmatic, she’s happy to let the silence between her words say as much as the words themselves. But even still, there’s a gentle kindness within the quiet, a sweet spirit as well as a keen wit that you should overlook only at your own peril. Ralph may be the captain of this ship, but Kris is most assuredly his anchor.

Pilar Gonzales

Account Representative

Phone Number: 505-275-7255

She’s younger. She’s faster. She’s . . . well, let’s not insult everyone else by saying “smarter.” Savvier? She’s Pilar Gonzales, the empire’s youngest and newest acquisition and she’s determined to drag HQ into the new millennium, regardless of the potential kicking and screaming that may result (there won’t actually be any of that; just semantics). If you see her at a show, don’t assume she’s just another pretty face. She’ll take your lunch money before you even know what’s happened.

Jennifer Orellana​

Accounting

Phone Number: (505) 332-3003

Jenn is fire in the form of flesh. The shining light of the office in the form of a disco ball, boisterous, passionate, and with a zest for life only rivaled by dedication to her work. She’s technically new to HQ, but as the driving force behind sister magazine, PAIN, she’s by no means, new to the it. She’s the life of the party, and when there’s no party to speak of, she is the party.

Richard DePriest​

Administrative Assistant

How does one describe Rich? Sassy grandpa? Resident curmudgeon? Maybe a little bit of both. But don’t think we’re making age references here. Yes, he’s at the higher end office age bracket, but we’re pretty sure the description would have been equally fitting when he was 30. He has that enduring wit about him, that sly subtle sarcasm that’s easy to miss if you’re not paying attention. A former electronics engineer, Rich is the resident problem solver. He can reformat your hard drive, rewire your motherboard, wipe you the porn from your browser history, change your alternator, and tidy up the lawn and that’s all before lunch time.
