From the beginning, she picked up every new task quickly and demonstrated tremendous curiosity about other roles in the organization, both in accounting and in general. Hungry for knowledge, she registered for a certificate at HEC last winter, and has been balancing work and school with gusto. Early on, she had the opportunity to learn how to do payroll and bank reconciliation, tasks that typically fell to the role of Accounting Analyst. Finally, the opportunity presented itself for her to move into this role, and she didn’t hesitate to show a strong interest. Valued by her colleagues, she is without a doubt an asset to our team. Congratulations, to Carla for her promotion to Accounting Analyst.
Antoine Gravet, Talent and Culture Team Lead, Recruiter
Antoine has been masterfully handling recruitment for more than a year. His skills, analytical mind and consummate professionalism were the deciding factors in our decision to promote him within the agency, and we are thrilled to offer him the role of Interim Team Lead, Talent and Culture. Antoine is the type of person who is as skilled at putting candidates at ease so their true personalities can shine, as he is putting them slightly ill at ease, so they know not to take anything for granted. He has shown us that recruitment is an art form, practically an Olympic discipline that requires insane endurance to maintain both the pace and duration. We are very proud and very impressed by everything he has accomplished during this past year and can’t wait to see him continue to grow with us.

An Advisian for five years, Kristel has now been promoted to Team Lead, Group Account. Kristel is brilliant, strategic and business wise. Her presence is felt on every project she touches. With her infamous dry wit, she’s a pillar of the team.
