What do you do at Genflow?

I'm a Business Executive Assistant and report to the CEO & Founder, Shan Hanif. I support Shan with various projects.

What were you doing prior to Genflow?
Prior to Genflow, I had a career break and lived in Dubai and Riyadh. Prior to that, I was working in sales for over 10 years within the finance and fashion industry. I know what you're thinking...two completely different industries.

Describe your role in 3 words?
Fast-moving, dynamic, and insightful

The highlight of your time at Genflow so far?
MGM - January 2022! I remember this day so vividly as it was my last day working with the Genflow customer service team. I was excited to meet some of them face-to-face so I was looking forward to going in.

That was the day I knew I couldn't miss out on the opportunity to work with an incredible team, so I explored other opportunities within the business (permanently) and decided to apply for a role. A big shout out to our VP of People, Ivy, who shared the initial role, and shortly after I interviewed with Shan.

Reese Wong - "Buy the shoes!" I love the style and authenticity of her posts. Another person to add is Lydia Millen, I have been following her for a while but when I saw her Summer Style '21 she came through with a few looks and I thought yessss.
