About Mr. Banana
As Office Hooligan, Mr. Banana’s duties include answering the phone with “Yellow,” making other bananas green with envy, and making all the V9 team’s hard work more a-peeling. He’s also responsible for leading the team’s shenanigans. Mr. Banana began his career at Volume Nine after being recruited as a highly talented individual from Dave & Buster’s University. He graduated with a B.A. in Tomfoolery with a minor in epic mustaches. When spotted by a team of lead V9 recruiters, we knew he had to be part of the team… we could “peel” it.
When offered a role on the team, he stated his current job drove him “bananas” and he was ready to “split.” However, since joining the team, Mr. Banana has found V9 to be a great place to “ripen” his skills and mature as a marketing professional. He also believes that everyone on the team has been exceptionally accommodating to his special needs: with no hands (or even a brain for that matter), typing and thinking aren’t his strongest skill sets, but we’re more than happy to help him out.
When Mr. Banana is not at the office, he can be found in tropical climates. Most often, you can find him hanging out with the rest of his “bunch.” His biggest fears are monkeys, refrigerators, Miss Chiquita’s hat, and dull knives. His proudest accomplishment is avoiding being turned into banana bread for 5 years and counting. He’s also figured out a way to control the amount of ethylene that he generates, which keeps him yellow and fresh for all of us. When he’s not on the scene at Volume Nine, he enjoys “hangin’ around,” playing https://bananagrams.com/.
