As has become the custom in these parts, we start the welcome wagon with a brief introduction - Annick tells me she doesn't like to be the centre of attention, so don't tell her you've read this, OK?
So, without further ado...
Meet Annick Kessels, Project Manager
Annick joins our formidable Project Management Team, helping to ensure that projects run smoothly and our clients are kept up to date on progress every step of the way. Somehow, the PM team seem to easily balance exceptional timekeeping with a questionable obsession with spreadsheets.
I mean, come on. No one likes spreadsheets really, do they?!
Tell us about yourself and what you've done on your way to Sitback?
I'm originally from Maastricht in the south of the Netherlands and lived for four and a half years in London before moving to Sydney.
After being fed up of years in fashion retail, I began my PM career in London within dynamic digital out-of-home advertising.
When the opportunity came up to move to Sydney for work I didn't hesitate at all and we packed our bags immediately, even though we had never visited Australia before. And now I'm here, very eager to work with the Sitback team!
What are you most looking forward to in your new position?
As I'm new to UX and web design I'm really excited to learn from the talented team at Sitback and can't wait to work on exciting projects. I'm also looking forward to getting to know everyone more; the company culture seems really lovely already!
What makes you tick / what are your interests outside of work?
I would say I'm a foodie, despite all my weird (non severe) allergies. I really love the Aussie brekkie culture so on the weekends you can find me in one of the cafes - I'm a massive sweet-tooth.
Other than that, I like to travel and be out and about - exploring new places, go for hikes, coastal walks, etc. Basically enjoying the amazing weather! But don't get me wrong, I can be a couch potato too and binge-watch Netflix.
So there you have it - welcome to the gang, Annick!
