Players of the Month – Creditinfo Iceland

They recently moved offices without disruption to their services and working day. They have moved to a lower floor in the same building so the address and contact information remains the same.  The recent growth and future development plans  require them to have a larger space, but the key reason for the move was to ensure everyone is together on the same floor, rather than spread over 2 floors as before and also to improve their working environment.

The Senior Management Team Meeting

mgt mtgWe’d like to thank the senior management for most of them travelling a many miles to a small town called Rodgau, just outside Frankfurt, Germany.  The team got together for 2 days of training and discussions for the annual senior management meeting. Each office discussed their successes and challenges from the last 12 months and highlighted a few areas which they will be working on in the coming year.

Training covered Product Development, Sales Coaching, Value Added Products, the Company Values, Lead Generation online & offline and looking in detail at “Strongest In …..”.    Reynir discussed the financials and our goals for the future.  One of our primary goals is 50 countries by 2020.

Sat around the table were 30 individuals who spoke 22 different languages highlighting what a multicultural team we have. Next year, there are likely to be a lot more new faces who will join the current team.

Although the 2 days were quite intense and quite long, especially for those who had flown in that morning or those on long haul flights who flew in the night before, they managed to kick back a little when the whole team played paintball.  Yes, we got to shoot at each other and at Reynir and Almar!

The Maltese show off their driving skills.

charles vella2 charlene camilleri2Congratulations to Charles Vella, Financial Controller at Creditinfo Malta!

The team recently went go karting as part of a team building exercise.  Initially, they were split into 2 teams boys v. girls to determine the fastest drivers, so they could then be split into 2 teams for the actual race. In the actual race Charles was the fastest of the fastest drivers, along with Charlene Camilleri coming 2nd.  Yes, Charlene gave the guys a whooping leaving them in her tracks of dust!  Charlene was the only girl in the team of the fast drivers.  Although if you saw her sporty car, you’d get an idea why! In the 2nd team of the slightly slower drivers, Emma came out as the winner, revealing some quite aggressive driving skills which even she didn’t know was in her!  Must be the last 3 years of practice on the Maltese roads!
