What has the Gekko journey looked like for Clara?

Joining Quin Global in 2017, Clara is working for Gekko in what is now her 4th year in the business. Joining the company in August of that year as an Office and Sales Administrator, Clara initially joined to support the sales team and the wider company with administrative activities, diary management and event organisation.

So, what kind of events are we talking about? Clara highlights that organising barbecue events was the best bit. However, there was more to the job than sizzling grills, with Clara taking responsibility for organising quarterly sales meetings, travel and accommodation.

“I created and maintained a travel booking system, which I loved doing as it was such a creative task! In 2018, I moved into the marketing department whilst still carrying out my previous administrative tasks. I supported the marketing department with tradeshow events and photography which has been used in our social media platforms, event planning and much more.”

In her current role, Clara maintains the highest of standards as Operational Quality Officer.

What does Clara love most about sticking with Gekko?

Clara’s journey with Gekko has been filled with interesting developments. The most exciting of those developments was to kick off in 2020, which saw this team member joining the Quality Department at Quin Global. 

“I would never look back,” says Clara. “I am devoted to putting the right steps and procedures

in place to ensure our product and service is of a high standard. I am currently undertaking training in our laboratory which has been a personal goal of mine. I foresee a bright future ahead, and it will only get better!

“I am devoted to developing my skillset through training and working with other departments closely, which I hope will contribute to our team.”

What does Clara enjoy doing in her spare time?

So – what does Clara get up to when she isn’t promoting the market’s best flooring adhesives? “The term “free-time” seems a little foreign to me,” she laughs. “However, if I was to pick one thing, I’d pick the piano. I do love playing this instrument and I have done since I started at the age of three!”
