Labels4Kids allows me to run a business that cares for others and their families, and that fits around my family. I am Australian and British. I joined Price Waterhouse Coopers in Melbourne as a graduate in Audit then qualified as a Chartered Accountant. Later I moved to London to work with Grant Thornton in Insolvency and Investigations. I then worked for Cinesite Europe in the film industry and later as a Management Consultant with Coopers and Lybrand in Scotland. Three boys later and 17 years of labelling and ecommerce I now promote ecommerce and female equality for the W20 (advisory group to the G20) voluntarily among other things. See Koolya,Ann-Maree Consulting and Labels4Brands.
Hobbies: I love travel, cycling, tennis, skiing, films, dining out, languages, reading (about ecommerce and optimisation mostly, afraid so), family and friends, and cocktails.
Languages: English as well as German and French, but what was once fluent business level is not so these days unfortunately from lack of practice day to day.
Labels4Kids is a fair employer and pays National Living Wage rates,is open to flexible working and nonexploitative practices, committed to innovation, hiring students, interns and training.
I started at Labels4Kids at the end of 2019 and I have two girls. I have an Accounting qualification and come from the South of Italy but have lived for many years with my family near Stirling.
Hobbies: Basketball, Star Wars fanatic, Cooking and Desigual.
Languages: English, Italian
Having completed my BSc and MSc degrees in Ecology & Conservation at the University of Aberdeen I moved to Stirling with my partner. I worked at an insurance broker for over a year and joined the Labels4Kids team when I realised that I wanted a better work-life balance and to learn about ecommerce.
Hobbies: In my spare time, I love to go to stand-up comedy and enjoy being close to Edinburgh and Glasgow for gigs. I like to paint and I’m always on the lookout for a new recipe to try my hand at.
Languages: English is my only language, but I have the odd handy phrase of French from high school.
I first met Ann-Maree through our partners being at Round Table way back. Our paths have also crossed over the years through school and our mutual love of tennis and travel. Having completed a BSc in Management Science and Psychology I went on to have a 15-year career in the Pensions Industry where I ran the Administration Department for a multi-national Pensions Consultancy firm. This is me in Texas on a ranch horse ride.
I then had a career break to concentrate on my family and now they have flown the nest was keen to get back into the work place and couldn't think of a nicer environment than Labels4Kids to do this. Over the years because we are a sporty family I too have been an avid user of our products and my son still uses our labels today for his Touch Rugby kit.
Hobbies: Tennis, skiing, reading and foreign travel.
Languages: English, some French and Spanish.
