Stork Craft: Meet Ms. Marketing!

Talia is the Sales and Marketing Manager for Stork Craft. She is energetic, fun and is a very hard worker. Talia may be small in stature but she more than makes up for this with her big heart (and her pink shoes).

Talia in her own words:

Now I go to the driving range and pretend I can golf. I also enjoy cocktail and dinner parties with friends on Saturday’s and shopping and lunch on Sundays with girlfriends

On Day 2 of ‘Meet the Team’, I am pleased to introduce you to Stork Craft’s Accounting Team. This fine looking group of Stork Craft employees bleeds Stork Craft purple. Their blood, sweat and tears go towards making sure the company has all of its finances in order. Here is a little bit of information on each of the Accounting employees, in their own words:

Raj
(far left): ‘When I’m not tending to my full-time job of looking after my 2 young kids, I’m busy with my hobby of ensuring my fellow Stork Craft co-workers are adequately compensated so they can feed, cloth & provide shelter for their own families and stay out of the homeless shelters.’

Stephanie (second from left): ‘Responsible for Accounts Receivable of Stork Craft US customers , and I am an assistant to Emely and Raj (Accounts Payable). Hobbies: reading , swimming , have a walk in the park if the weather is good, and working very very hard on my CGA (it is not a hobby , but it is what I do in my spare time), on-line shopping (if it counts?!)’

Melissa (second from right): ‘Accounts Receivable. My favorite to do on my spare time is shopping and watching TV shows like CSI, Bones & Wipeout.’

Jorge (far right): ‘I’m the accounts receivable person for Ragazzi US. I like interacting with all of our different clients, whether its via email or by phone. In my spare time I like watching sports go canucks! Also doing outdoor sports.’

Emely (not in the picture): ‘My job is to put customer on hold who doesn’t pay” their bills, better be nice with me :) On a serious note, take charge of the accounting team for Stork Canada and USA. To make sure proper protocol is being followed. I’ve been working with Stork Craft for 5 years now. My hobbies include outdoor activities and watching movies.’

Stork Craft : Meet the Team


I received a few requests to post pictures of some of the Stork Craft employees. Today I would like to introduce you to myself, Adam Segal, and my associate Taylor Moore. Taylor, dressed in all black, is the Sales Manager for Canada, and I must say that he is one of our most talented and self-driven employees at Stork Craft. Taylor is only 23 years old but is wise beyond his years. He has been with Stork Craft for five years. His hobbies include sports, watching movies, cars and ATVing.

I am in the white shirt and am involved with Online Marketing and have recently been shifted into Sales. I am 25 years old and have been with the company for a total of 1.5 years. My hobbies include working out at the gym, watching sports (especially Canucks hockey!) and enjoying the beautiful city of Vancouver in any way that I can.

Stay tuned for more of the faces of Stork Craft.
