Meet the team behind ENLIGHTENED! Today we’re talking to Gemma, our financial controller.
So, what do you do at ENLIGHTENED?
I am the financial controller, which means I manage the day-to-day running of the finance team and produce monthly financials and forecasts to help guide the company through its growth.
What were you doing before you came here?
I worked as a senior finance manager for a music production company in Williamsburg. Yes, they were all trendy hipsters!
How did you wind up at ENLIGHTENED?
I saw the job advertised on LinkedIn and another job board. Since they were posted by two different people, I applied twice. How could they possibly ignore me when I kept applying?
Where did you live before coming to NYC?
A quiet little town called Tring in England, where the high street shops close at five o’clock and everyone knows everybody in their street. Moving to the big city was a complete but exciting culture shock.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
All the many challenges that come with building a strong team in a fast growing company such as ours.
If you could create one crisps flavor what would it be?
Where’s the best place to get a bagel in NYC?
No idea, I’m not a bagel fan.
What is your current phone background?
Me, my husband and our one-year-old son enjoying his first birthday party, and we all have matching African outfits brought over from my visiting in-laws.
What is one thing that you always have in your kitchen?
Rice and a rice cooker.
Original or double chocolate marshmallow treat?
Tea or coffee?
Silly question to ask me…..English Breakfast tea, of course.
East or west coast?
Movie theater or Netflix?
Ketchup or BBQ sauce?
Cook dinner or go out?
Gordon Ramsay or Guy Fieri?
E-mail or snail mail?
Happiness is a state of mind, not a destination.
