SOCRATIC TECHNOLOGIES

Lee Streu

Executive Vice President

Started At Socratic: 2009

I help scope and design new projects, advise on project decisions, and otherwise jump in wherever needed to ensure projects are completed on-time and with high quality.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING I LEARNED BEFORE HIGH SCHOOL?

TRY HARD. WORK HARD. GOOD THINGS WILL HAPPEN. EVEN WHEN THEY DON’T, THEY WILL EVENTUALLY.

IF YOU COULD BE ANYWHERE OTHER THAN HERE, RIGHT THIS MINUTE, WHERE WOULD YOU BE?

DRIVING. IT’S NOT EVEN ABOUT THE DESTINATION. IT’S ABOUT THE JOURNEY.

WHO IS SOMEONE YOU ADMIRE, AND WHY?

MY DOG. SHE SLEEPS, EATS, PLAYS, AND GENERALLY LIVES IN THE MOMENT WITHOUT STRESSING OVER THINGS SHE CANNOT SEE, HEAR, OR CHEW.

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR PERSONAL MOTTO?

GOOD. – JOCKO WILLINK.

WHAT'S THE MOST INSPIRING PART OF YOUR JOB?

MOST INSPIRING IS THAT THIS JOB PROVIDES FOR MY FAMILY, MY CO-WORKERS, AND THEIR FAMILIES. I ENJOY THE WORK AND THE PEOPLE, BUT I LIKE THE GREATER IMPACT IT HAS BEYOND WHAT WE DO.

WHEN WORKING WITH CLIENTS, WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT SEEMS TO SURPRISE THEM WHEN CONDUCTING RESEARCH?

IT SURPRISES ME TO HEAR OUR CLIENT PARTNERS SURPRISED WHEN WE DESCRIBE THE EXTENSIVE DATA CLEANING & CHEATER CHECK PROCESSES THAT SOCRATIC EMPLOYS. A GOOD STORY REQUIRES GOOD DATA, AND WE ENSURE THAT OUR DATASETS REMOVE NOTICEABLE BAD RESPONDENTS ON EVERY PROJECT.

IF I COULD INVENT A HOLIDAY, IT WOULD DEFINITELY INVOLVE...

BBQ, BEVERAGES, AND A CAMPFIRE. WAIT, THAT’S CALLED SATURDAY.

DO YOU HAVE A PET? WHAT IS THEIR NAME?

CASEY, THE KINDEST PIT BULL THIS SIDE OF THE MISSISSIPPI.

FLASHBACK TO WHEN YOU WERE 10 YEARS OLD. WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?

BASEBALL PLAYER, FIREMAN, OR FOREST RANGER. AND I ENDED UP IN MARKETING RESEARCH?

WHAT’S A GOAL YOU HAVE FOR YOURSELF THAT YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH IN THE NEXT YEAR?

FLY FISH IN YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK. GET SCUBA CERTIFIED WITH MY TEENAGE SONS AND DIVE IN MEXICO.
