Albert Anderson

Bio

Albert has over 20 years experience in information technology and graphic design. He has worked for some notable local companies including Thermo-Twin Windows, one of Pittsburgh’s leading window manufacturers, and Rental Guide Magazine along with many other local individuals and companies in the area.

Albert graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a degree in Visual Communications in the summer of 1999. While he attended AIP he received several awards and recognition for his expertise and craftsmanship. Albert tutored fellow students in the use of Windows and Apple operating systems and various applications for students at AIP due to his technical abilities.

Starting in the fall of 1999, Albert joined Kinko’s Copies & More, now known as FedEx Office in Monroeville, PA were he worked as a Creative Services team member in maintaining the local computer network, personal computers, printers and internet services in the store. While working for Kinko’s, Albert designed and created documents, advertising materials, stationary, vinyl banners and many other designs for customers.

In  the Spring of 2000, while still working at Kinko’s on the weekends, Albert joined the publishing company Homes & Land Magazine’s Rental Guide in Pittsburgh, PA. Homes & Land is a company out of Florida that owns many publications such as Apartments.com, Rental Guide Magazine and many more. Albert worked in the production of magazines as a graphic designer. In his tenure at Homes & Land Magazine he produced several magazines each month for different locations all around the country as well as updated and maintained each website for each magazine. Magazine environments in the early 2000s were incredibly fast paced. One of the fastest paced jobs at the time. Albert was not only able to do his work but able to step in and do the work of his co-workers when needed. In 2004 his co-worker’s daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. He was able to step in and do much of the work for his co-worker for months on end on top of his workload.

Starting in July, 2005 Albert joined Thermo-Twin Windows in Oakmont, PA as their Marketing Director where he was really allowed to show his creativity. Working closely with the CEO at the time, Joe Palermo, Albert started to negotiate advertising rates, while using his experience in office equipment, shipping, and printing that he acquired while working at Kinko’s to save Thermo-Twin in printing costs by examining contracts and offering printing companies a chance to compete for contracts to get the lowest price possible for all outsourced print jobs, office equipment and printer leases. During his service with Thermo-Twin he wrote, and produced television, radio commercials and marketing campaigns for Pittsburgh, Erie, Toledo, and Cleveland. He designed all outdoor, newspaper, and magazine marketing ads, working as a one man production studio at Thermo-Twin’s headquarters in Oakmont. One of his biggest accomplishments while working for Thermo-Twin was developing their online presence from scratch in 2005 when the term SEO was just catching on. Until 2005, Thermo-Twin Windows was never online. They were listed only in the phone book and the BBB. By 2006, Thermo-Twin Windows’ sales from the internet were over $250,000 and growing substantially each consecutive year after. When Albert left Thermo-Twin in 2013 to explore his personal endeavors, over half of Thermo-Twin’s sales were initiated from the website and internet presence that he had built from the ground up.

Spring of 2019, Albert began working for the nonprofit organization, Westmoreland Cultural Trust. Albert worked at the Trust as a graphic designer. Westmoreland Cultural Trust owns and operates The Palace Theatre and Greensburg Garden & Civic Center. During his time with the Trust, Albert updated and maintained all websites, created and delivered marketing e-mails using databases collected from patrons and members, designed and produced annual company reports and worked on graphic design for various productions including making posters for national touring acts. Working for the Palace and the Trust was very fast paced. Albert, who is very comfortable multitasking and cool under pressure, was able to handle anything that was thrown in his direction with little oversight.

In 2021, Albert Joined Massa Law Group as IT Director taking over management of their website, rebuilding it and moving their domain to new hosting services, saving thousands of dollars per month.  Albert also took over management of the local network and printer network helping save even more additional money.
