I am the office manager of Media Track, which is probably self-explanatory of what my role entails. On the fun side I try my best to ensure our office has a cosy enough vibe to match its hipster exterior as well as at times be a “mother hen” to the team! 😊
When have you joined MT and what is your current role?
I joined the company in 2012 as an Analyst. After about half a year, I started working with our print conversion, ie., the digitization of newspapers and magazines. Since then Media Track and the conversion business have grown tremendously and today, I am Mediatrack’s COO.
Describe your average day at Media Track?
There are not many average days in my job. Media Track is constantly evolving to improve production processes to deliver a better product, faster. At the same time, we are regularly adding new clients to our business. No clients are ever exactly the same, whether the reason is the print material we get from them or the type of product they want from us. When our clients trust us with the delivery of searchable print contents, we often have to adjust our delivery to fit the production system that they already have in place. The key challenge is to design the production process to both meet the client’s requirements and align smoothly with all our other processes for the smoothest possible operation. When we are not busy with the implementation of new clients, there are still processes to optimize and as well as the development of new products.
Education and Experience
I have a Master of Science in Biophysics from Copenhagen University, Denmark, and a Ph.D. in Biomechanical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
What do you like most about the job?
I think what caught me from the beginning was the mixture of the many technical details, the multinational feeling of working with newspapers in different languages and from all over the world, and the fact that the processing has to work like clockwork to ensure that we deliver everything on time. These aspects all speak to very different parts of me – I think that is quite unique to find in a job.
I know it’s been a good day when…?
Everything is delivered well on time or when a client tells us that they are very happy with what we deliver.
