Two New Faces at Captivating

(by Andrew Colquhoun, Captivating CEO)

It’s my great privilege to introduce to you two new Captivating team members.

Emily Li joined our Captivating support team as our Accountant in June, 2015. Emily replaces Chris Tan who will unfortunately be leaving us at the end of July after three great years.  We wish Chris all the best in her new career.  Emily will be responsible for ensuring Captivating complies with country laws and guidelines as well as ensuring we are passing annual accounting audits and inspections.  She will also provide accounting support to our project partners helping them to improve their financial records and practices.  We are delighted to have Emily join our team and look forward to the years ahead with Emily as part of Captivating.

​​Daniella Ma​y is our very first Captivating Australia employee.​  Daniella started with us in July as Administration Manager – Captivating Australia, and will work closely with Julie and Andrew to help establish and grow our Australian support base over the coming years. We are thrilled to have Daniella on board with us, and look forward to a future of growth and expansion.

Thanks​ Emily and Daniella​ in advance for all you will be doing with us. ​Great to have you both joining  the Captivating family.

From the moment I stepped foot in the office, I was made to feel like part of the team. I had the warmest welcome and felt so comfortable with everyone straight away."
