– Favorite film or book

I really like cinema in general, but if I had to choose, Pulp Fiction, Blood Diamond, or Law Abiding Citizen are some of my favorite films. I don’t read very much, but I like romantic novels

– Favorite meal

I’m very keen on traditional food; however, in good company and with good wine, the least important is the food!

– Your perfect holiday destination?

In summer I’d go anywhere with crystalline seawater and beaches, not far from here, Menorca or Formentera. In winter I love going to the mountain, to see snowy landscapes and go skiing.

– What do you like the most about working at BEST?

My job is not routine at all, and I’d say this is what I like most. Every day is different, I do a multitude of tasks; I don’t have time to get bored.

– Your happiest day at BEST?

One of the best days that I’ve enjoyed here, would be the day that the last 3 Quay Cranes arrived. At 6 in the morning I was standing on the berth in front of the terminal and I saw in the distance the vessel approaching while the sun was rising. It was really awesome!

– Describe your role at BEST. Do you have any anecdote?

My daily job is so varied; every day is different from another. I dedicate the first days of every month to data reporting to our headquarters in London and in Hong Kong, all the other days are unpredictable! I deal with customers, prepare several reports, do visits and tours through the terminal facilities, update the website, write press releases and organise different kinds of events, among other tasks.

I have an endless list of anecdotes, nearly most of them related to the organization of different events (official opening, SIL) and from visits that I’ve done through the terminal, I couldn’t choose just one!

– What is the most satisfying thing of your job?

To keep on learning every day and acquire new knowledge. The team we form in the commercial department and the good relationship with people from other areas of the company are some of the most satisfying things in my job.
