Human Resources / Greeter

Probably the most under-rated asset to our team is Zoe. Zoe makes sure everyone is in good spirits and ready to work. She is ever vigilant in guarding the office from anything with wheels, and she also wards off unwanted solicitors that get in the way of productivity. She doesn't like things with wheels.

"Just got word directly from our president how pleased he is with your work. Please let all your team members involved with the project know how appreciative we are. Your company has been great to work with from our initial phone call with Siavash, all the way through to delivery. You exceeded our expectations at every step. Looking forward to working with you again."
