What was your first impression of VALOR?
I already knew a couple of the VALOR team members, and when I was working on a common project, I learned to appreciate their professional approach. The first impression was a friendly and open communication culture, with a lean organization. The cooperation between VALOR colleagues is respectful and relaxed. I’ve felt warmly welcomed to the team.
What do you hope to gain from your new position?
I hope to be able to provide my expertise to the advantage of the customers. I’m a team player and love working with customers. I also hope to build new relationships to learn more myself.
