We honor all women today (#internationalwomensday) with a story of an inspiring young woman within our organization! Meet Claire.
Claire started out with Wood Couture (furniture manufacturing company) as a Projects Coordinator within the Technical Team under co-founder and COO, Paolo Della Casa, coordinating project specification approvals, material sample preparations and price related concerns with clients as well as technical details with the production team. Barely a year in, Claire was challenged to fully manage a project wherein she proved her grit, intelligence, and passion for her work which launched her to the manager role.
“In our organization, we work with young people with fire in their bellies”, co-founder & COO, Paolo often says. Paolo had discovered Claire working a temp job as a receptionist for the business center Wood Couture was using as one of their offices. Recognizing her potential and in keeping with the company’s unconventional ways, Paolo had offered Claire a role with the company shortly after she had moved on from the receptionist job.
Claire enjoys nature, drawing and new experiences, whether trying different cuisines or activities in and around Dubai. Her presence always brightens up the office, she is a kind and thoughtful friend.
