Ash has demonstrated success in working across the business at all levels, developing trust and building effective partnerships.

Other titles she answers to include Head Snack Preparer, Internet Sleuth and Grammar Police. Ash is an advocate for looking after yourself and understands the importance of achieving balance.

Nicole is our Compensation and Benefits Specialist who has over 12 years of experience in HR with a decade of that time spent in the technology industry.
