We’ve had a busy start to the spring; so much so, that we’re just now getting to our March Employees of the Month! The past month saw more record numbers, nearly 20 new hires, and the continued success of many teams. However, the outstanding effort of the following seven team members has earned them the title of March Employee of the Month.
Brenden Spencer – VP EU/UK Operations – Amsterdam Office
Brenden has worked tirelessly in working to build up our EU/UK Ops team and set them up for growth and success. He has done a great job growing our design and development teams and has also made major contributions to various partner pitches and setups. This has all been accomplished with minimal resources and tech. He shows an amazing commitment to our business and is a true leader in pushing the business forward.
Giulia Malaponti – Web Designer – Amsterdam Office
Giulia is one of our many rockstar designers. She has gone above and beyond in creating the guidelines in preparation for more growth, has nimbly and successfully moved from team to team, all while putting forward high quality work. She is a joy to work with and is a great example for the rest of the design team.
Andrea Iori – Italian Client Manager – Amsterdam Office
Our Italian team continues to grow leaps and bounds, and their success is in big part to Andrea Iori. Over the last month, Andrea has shown that he is always willing to help the team and can easily adapt to many different roles. He has really stepped up to every request coming from the team and always completes his work with a calm and friendly attitude. Additionally, he is one of the team’s highest performers and has been responsible for a whole 10% of the websites that have been published. He is a wise man despite his young age and we’re fortunate to have him on the team.
Ilter Gunasti – Scrum Master – Amsterdam Office
Ilter just joined Spotzer as our scrum master for the tech team in January. However, he has hit the ground running, and been instrumental in helping our tech team transition and adopt a more structured and agile approach. Not only is he running and organizing 3 separate scrum teams, he is also using his skills as a business analyst, helping the product teams develop requirements and enhancing communication throughout the business. He takes everything in his stride, stays calm, and produces results, all the time with a smile on his face! We’re delighted to have him on the team.
Sonia Constandelos – Client Manager – Melbourne Office
The deserving winner of February’s Employee of the Month title, Sonia has continued to go above and beyond in her work to earn this month’s award as well. Sonia continues to grow as a client manager, handling all new order briefing and frequently arriving to work early and leaving late. Since starting at Spotzer in September 2016, Sonia has become a real asset to the APAC team. But more importantly, the feedback she receives from customers is overwhelmingly positive. With her hard work and dedication, we can’t wait to see Sonia continue to reach new heights at Spotzer.
Ryan Ensign – Client Manager – Denver Office
Ryan has been doing a great job heading up a new US partnership. He has worked hard, trained up the team, and kept an amazing attitude throughout it all. Self-starters like Ryan are a great example to the rest of the business. He is a fantastic teammate to work with and an incredible member of the global Spotzer team.
Junelle Narra – Email Support Specialist – Manila Office
Junelle has really shone in March. With a strong performance across all aspects of her role, Junelle is showing a real maturity in her approach to work, as well as her focus on customer service. With a 100% email client satisfaction score for the month, she really put the customer first, and it paid off, with positive feedback from clients across the board. Being highly process driven, as well as very receptive to feedback, Junelle is pushing herself more and more in terms of quality of work and delivery, and her growth in her role across the past months has certainly not gone unnoticed. Always willing to take on more tasks as needed, she is showing herself as a valuable member of the Manila team and is worthy of the recognition for her efforts across March.
