This has been a long time coming. We are pleased to finally give the award for Employee of the Year 2020 to Anthony Collinson. Anthony joined Spotzer in Melbourne and then around four years ago he moved to the Netherlands. He is an absolute rockstar. Whenever there was a problem, he sorted it out. We have had ups and downs but he has been so tenacious - he always questions things, tells you when you are wrong, pushes back. This business is much stronger with Anthony in it. You mean so much to all of us, you are incredibly patient and hard-working! We really appreciate what you do, and we look forward to the next 5 years of working with you in our business.
Raphaela is someone who has done incredible things in our business and continues to do incredible things. She has grown from being our second German Client Manager to now managing the biggest opportunities at Spotzer. Raph, thank you for your great input in launching new partners and for the professional management of the accounts. Thank you for everything that you do!
He has been fast in adapting to working at Spotzer and he quickly settled and started to make a positive change. This sets him out as someone who is extremely strong. He is often described as confident and stable. Even though he has only been with us for nine months, he has never been a junior member of the team, always rising to the challenge.

Xia has done an incredible job in owning our financial accounts. She has moved mountains in the audit work and the due diligence efforts. She is now fully in control of our books and she has become a great mentor to our junior team members.
Nate has dedicated so much effort to more efficient operations in Manila via a data driven approach while still being able to work as part of the Digital Media Team, supporting our Melbourne office. All year round, he delivers more than what is expected of him. Nate's flexibility brought him success and he continues to be even more reliable. He loves challenging himself with projects that will develop his skill set, always with a positive mindset. He truly deserves this recognition.
