Meet the Newest Additions to Team Allwag

02/08/2017 13:57

On July 17th, two new budding recruits joined the team here at Allwag Promotions - Nancy Gill & Katrina Istead!

Team Allwag are constantly expanding to keep up with the continuous growth of our business. Our company is delighted to be recognised and associated with friendly and personable service as well as our ongoing support of our amazing team – as a result, Allwag Promotions have been awarded the GOLD Investors in People standard for the next three years! 

After giving our two newest members a chance to settle in, we thought we’d ask them a few questions to help you get to know them a bit better…

Allow us to introduce you to Nancy Gill

Having worked in the freight (transportation) industry for over five years, Nancy has now joined Allwag Promotions as our new Corporate Customer Service Executive!

…anything else?

"From day one everyone made me feel like part of Team Allwag. They’re all so willing to help me out as well as each other. Everyone is so friendly, bubbly, not to mention hard working and committed! There hasn’t been a single day without fun and giggles in the office."

Meet Katrina Istead…

Where did you hear about Allwag Promotions and what drew you into working with Team Allwag?

"I heard about Allwag Promotions through a post on my local discussion page about the company looking for a Marketing Intern.

I was drawn to Allwag by their community and family feel, as well as their emphasis placed on Corporate Social Responsibility."

What do you like most about the promotional merchandise industry?

"My favourite aspect of the industry is that it covers such a wide variety of promotional products. There’s always a new item or trend taking off which means that it will never get boring!"

"I’ve obtained a greater understanding of how successful teamwork and a positive working environment drives business and delivers the best results!"
