CEO Award – Randy van Veen
Randy is a consummate professional and the epitome of everything Spotzer strives for. Absolutely dedicated to her job: Randy continually gives us 100%. Personally flying out to Manila to train a new squad of designers, Randy worked through a typhoon and even stayed a week longer to make sure that they were fully up to the task. Randy has become an important pillar of reliability and support within the design team and more broadly within Spotzer as a whole. We are very pleased to have her with us and look to her ever more for leadership and innovation within the design department.
Operations Award – Juliette de Fonteney
In the middle of a sudden and challenging situation with one of our French partners, Juliette rose up to the challenge and took charge of the situation. With tact, diplomacy, and unshakable presence, Juliette completely turned the situation around with dignity and grace – scoring us an unexpected win that left most of the team in awe.
Juliette’s smiling can-do attitude has made working with her a pleasure and privilege. She has quickly become an essential lynch-pin within Spotzer: facilitating, communicating, and coordinating with personnel and leadership within and between all our various departments. She has met every challenge and every meeting with the right blend of grace, intelligence, and Spotzer spirit. Her ability to negotiate with the different strong personalities of senior personnel – both within Spotzer and our Partner’s team – has made her an essential line of communication between all stakeholders.
Juliette has this amazing natural ability to hold space for other in which they can express what they need expect. This has helped us internally but has also helped our customers and saved them from cancelling orders. Her presence and guidance have also become an important asset in the training of new team members as we prepare to ramp up production.
Global Content & Design – Aissatou Gueye
Everyone in our 180 strong office knows Aissatou by name and by fame. Aissatou is the undisputed queen of content and design at Spotzer. Her superpower is the ability to make big problems disappear. Working with all our partners across all countries and markets – there is nothing that she doesn’t know, and no problem too big or too small that she can’t resolve.
Aissatou is a source of incredible support and reliability to her colleagues and peers: even senior personnel come to her to ask for help and advice.
With her friendly and caring can-do attitude, it’s truly a pleasure to work with her. Aissatou’s attention to detail, organization, and her vast knowledge of all the in’s and out’s of every set of partner guidelines and procedures makes her an essential one-stop problem-solving miracle worker.
Global Content & Design – Massimo Marino
Scouring thousands of rows and columns across 100’s of spreadsheets, Massimo’s eagle eyes miss nothing. As our newest QA Analyst, Massimo has moved into the role with confidence, professionalism, and an amazing work ethic. His vigilance and diligent quality control ensure that the hundreds of sites that we deliver to our partners each month are immaculate.
He also single-handedly migrated all our quality control checklists to the new platform – while simultaneously juggling multiple training sessions with internal teams and external partners to make sure that everyone is aligned on the same quality standards.
HQ Award – Sandie Charles
Law is about maintaining order; it’s about rules, standards, stability. Lawyers and legal advisors tend to like things to be organized, predictable, calm. So working for Spotzer as part of our legal department can’t have been easy for Sandie. Spotzer is constantly growing, expanding: taking on new clients and new challenges. Every client, every new market, every project needs a solid legal foundation and that’s where Sandie has excelled!
Working in a turbulent, high-paced, and sometimes ambiguous commercial legal world, Sandie has remained poised and composed and allowed Spotzer to move forward in greater legal clarity and stability. She has been both Spotzer’s legal light and our shield: illuminating the path ahead while rigorously defending the interests of the company. Whether it’s been pricing or penalties, Sandie has pushed every negotiation towards a favourable business outcome for Spotzer and our personnel.
