One Tough (Italian) Cookie

So, here I am, Laraine Lamicella. I’ve been with Concepts TV for over 9 years now and this group is still driving me crazy! As Director of Finance, I’m constantly striving to maintain all of our friendly client relations while simultaneously ensuring that all of our finances are in order. I’m proud to admit that I have a reputation around here for being a “tough collector.” (I’m Italian – what do they expect?!) I’m also tasked with managing all of the HR goings-on here at Concepts. In fact, I even have a swanky, homemade HR hat that one of my co-workers made for me! (So I suppose you could say that I wear many hats – literally!)

At times, keeping this group in line can be almost impossible. What with the varying personalities and demanding workloads, this aspect of my job certainly has its challenges. But from the daily office lunches, during which we cover just about every topic of conversation, to the fabulous travelling retreats that Collette organizes for the team, I love being able to connect with my Concepts TV co-workers on a more intimate and personal level. Like with any business, each day comes with its own unique hurdles, but being able to bond, vent, and brainstorm solutions with the rest of my Concepts family is what gets me through each day.

So, sure, this group can certainly drive me crazy, but they also make me laugh, they make me smile, and they keep me young! I can hardly believe that I’ll be celebrating my 10 year anniversary with Concepts TV at the end of this year, but you know what they say – time flies when you’re having fun!IMG_1787-300x297
