Run the Numbers: Goodbye, Stewade

June 25, 2021

After eight years, Brand & UX Manager, Social Media Director Stewart Wade is leaving TexAgs as he embarks on a new adventure at Essentium. The TexAgs crew wanted to surprise him by sending him out on a high note, and what better way to do so than to RUN THE NUMBERS.

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.

Thanks to Beware of Doug, AndrewistheMAN and claydeezy for their contributions.

Lindsay Caudle (Stewade’s favorite (ex)coworker) is also very annoyed sad that Stewade is leaving his self-proclaimed “dream job” to pursue a career in selling printers. So she put together a series of Stewade-themed gifs to describe the emotional rollercoaster that his announcement email to the staff had on her.

*Reads headline*

“I've entered the transfer portal”

“HOWDY. Well, I just wanted to let everyone know that after a lot of thought, prayer, and sleepless stressed out nights, I've decided to accept a Creative Director position at a company called Essentium.”

“I can't tell you how difficult a decision this was because I've absolutely loved working here alongside y'all over these past 7+ years. TexAgs was the first job I've ever really loved and it wasn't just because I got paid to watch football, tweet, and make dumb videos”

*Remembers ‘As The Season Turns’*

“(although that helped) — it was because I got to work with a group of really talented and genuinely great people who also loved to work for this incredible organization that Brandon, Josh, Billy, and Hunter have built.

I want to thank the owners for taking a shot in the dark on someone from the advertising world who had never managed a company's social media presence or run a design and marketing department before (how did I get this job again?). I felt fully trusted and empowered by each of y'all and appreciate how you lead this company and will continue to move it forward.”

“I'm excited to watch and see what y'all do next. And I'm confident you'll continue to make super dumb videos despite my absence (looking at you, Clay).”

“I also want to thank everyone for making this job not really feel like a job all these years. Y'all have made this the best work environment I've ever experienced. One piece of good news, though: even though Essentium is based in Austin,...”

“I'm staying in College Station...”

“...and will be primarily working remotely for them. So you're not totally getting rid of me!

Ok, it's just like me to write something way too long, so I'll go ahead and stop. My last day is June 25th, so I'd love to spend time with each of y'all before then!”

“TL;DR: I'm leaving but I love you.”

“Thanks and Gig 'em,
