Team spotlight – meet Alexa Hendry
We’ve worked hard to recruit some of the most experienced global talent from the world of design, build, construction and project management. Each month, we put one of our colleagues in the spotlight so you can learn a little more about their role…
- Describe your job in one paragraph
I do a bit of everything! My job means I work across marketing, development, finance, operations, HR, and office management elements. I enjoy the variety and being able to work with so many different people, both internally and externally.
- Which one word would colleagues use to describe you?
- Why do you think Agilité stands out from competitors?
In my opinion, Agilité stands out because we are able to combine the benefits of a start-up with that of a long-established business. This includes creating personalised relationships with our partners, as well as bringing fresh ideas and new ways of doing things to the table. This is further bolstered by decades of experience in the industry and knowing what works and what doesn’t.
What’s great about Agilité is that we’re like a little family. As a collective, we really believe in what we do and want to make a success of it.
- What’s your biggest career highlight to date?
The fact that I’m now at a point in my career where I am completely integrated in France – both culturally and linguistically – and that I’m able to carry out my job in a truly bilingual fashion. I moved here from Scotland after university and struggled in the beginning because so much was new for me – my first time living abroad, first time ever in Paris, first real job, and first time living alone.
- The phone rings and it’s your dream client… who is it?
Guerrilla Games. I’m a huge fan of video games and one of my favourites is Horizon Zero Dawn. I would love to have the chance to work together.
- When you’re not at work, where are we most likely to find you?
Playing video games, having a beer at my local pub, or playing my guitar and singing – endured by my cat and fiancé!
- What’s next for Agilité?
We’re going to keep doing what we love – getting involved in some of the most exciting commercial and retail projects across Europe!
