We’ve got a new member of the team here at Strelitzia HQ so we would like to introduce you to Charlet.
Charlet is joining us as the Head of German Marketing and Support and for a number of reasons. As we’re expanding into Germany it’s becoming increasingly important we have a German speaker in the office to work alongside Marcel who is based over in Germany.
Charlet will be the front end support for all our German speaking customers as well as helping in the office with the English side too.
Anyway, away from the boring work information Charlet has had a very eclectic and interesting life! Born in Switzerland and living near Zurich for most of her childhood. There was then a move across the Atlantic to the USA, when she was just 12, where she stayed until she finished studying German Language at Michigan State University and returning back to the UK at 21.
Once she’d returned to the UK it was into the family business for Charlet. Her parents ran a hotel in County Durham, The Morritt, for which Charlet became Hotel Manager and helped run until just a couple of years ago.
She has since worked for a charity in a business centre before a chance meeting led to her move to Strelitzia. One night before Christmas, Mark was explaining to an old friend how Strelitzia is expanding into Germany and mentioned we’d be looking for a German speaker before too long. She told Mark not to bother looking and pointed us to Charlet, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Charlet is a keen Gin enthusiast who likes Rugby (which is obviously why Mark gave her a job!) so if Charlet answers your calls over the next couple of weeks, please do say hello and introduce yourself. We’re all excited for what’s to come over the next couple of months and years.
