The TKS Digest # 2 - "Meet our New Delivery Manager & Director of Business Development
The TKS Family keeps growing. Please meet our Delivery Manager Mireille Caissie & our Director of Business Development Gillian Gallant! We sat down with them this week to learn more..
1. Where are you from and tell us a little about yourself?
Mireille - I’m from Cocagne New Brunswick, born and raised. I have two beautiful boys aged 9 and 7. I love nature, camping and spending time with my family.
Gillian - I was born and raised in Miramichi, New Brunswick. I lived in Fredericton for many years before moving to Toronto and then from there, moving to Alberta but like any good east coast’er I found my way back home. I have only been living in Moncton for 2 months and so far I love it. I love to cook, I’m a political junkie, a craft beer aficionado and I am trying to become decent at golf. My partner is a golf addict so I am getting into it more but my game is pretty brutal right now. Horror movies are the best and country music needs to die.
2. What makes you smile more than anything else?
Mireille - To see my children be happy and successful.
Gillian - Josh Donaldson of the Cleveland Indians… #futurehusband
3. If money was no object, what would be your restaurant of choice?
Mireille - I do not have a favorite restaurant. I do, however, like any restaurant that serves pasta.
Gillian - The Windjammer actually! I have heard it is incredible but I have also heard that their steak is the price of a small car sooooooooo…..
4. Why did you choose to be part of the TKS team?
Mireille - To evolve in my career by learning new knowledge, accept new challenges and to have a new adventure with a new team!
Gillian - This opportunity first came to me through a friend of mine and I had been looking for an exciting and challenging new career move. After my initial meetings with Roddy and Sean and learning more about the company and people, I knew this was the right move for me. I could not have been happier when I received an email from Sean letting me know that the company was going to send me a letter of offer.
5. You’ve been with us a few weeks now, are you enjoying the TKS experience?
Mireille - Yes, I appreciate the team and the new challenges that work brings me.
Gillian - I am immensely enjoying the experience thus far! Everyone that works here is wonderful and I feel that I am being fully supported. I like that this is truly a team environment and that its okay to express yourself and have an opinion. I also feel that I am being treated like a person and not just an employee so between the actual position and the culture at TKS, I am very happy here.
6. What is your favorite music when driving or working?
Mireille - Bluegrass and Acadian music.
Gillian - Honestly it can range from Britney Spears to Metallica and everything in between. I like anything that is upbeat, positive and fun!! I am really into Imagine Dragons though. I would have to say they are my favorite band at this point.
