Project Producer (Amsterdam)
Elena grew up in Ukraine, coming from a small ethnic group that counts 100,000 people all over the world, and the origin of which is obscure. Indeed, there are 21 theories about the origin of the Gagauz people. When doing marketing studies, she realised that working in consumer insights was perfect for her, with space for her analytical side alongside an intuitive feeling for people. After a short stint managing quantitative projects, she moved on to have many years of corporate experience in FMCG – including in strategy, planning and insight teams, before moving to brand marketing departments in Belgium and then Amsterdam. Along the way, Elena has grown into a skilled project manager. And when not at work, and not busy with her three children (like, hardly ever), you’ll find her exploring how the body, mind and soul work together – from yoga and mediation, to body work, tapping, intuitive dancing, you name it!
