Say hello to… Laraine Lamicella! Our Chief Financial Officer and Concepts TV’s favorite mom!
What is your favorite part of your job?
“My favorite part of my job is working with a fun creative team and never knowing what each day will bring.”
In your own words, what is the Concepts TV philosophy?
“Concepts TV philosophy on a business level is always to deliver the best product no matter what it takes.
Concepts TV philosophy on an employee level is a lot about family. In the office we are like a family and the Concepts team is always willing to support any ups and downs that we may have within our own families.”
Do you have any advice for future CFO?
“As the CFO for Concepts for over 13 years, all I can say is that you need to be prepared to wear a lot of hats! CFO duties can sometimes be mundane but not at Concepts. Be prepared to change roles from CFO to Facilities Manager to Human Resources in minutes.”
If you weren’t a CFO what would you be?
“I would like to work for a non-profit organization or spend time volunteering with children.”
What is your favorite hobby?
“I love to read a good book, take long walks, listen to music and do lots of word games.” **
What are you currently watching on Netflix?
“Don’t know if these are on Netflix but I am currently alternating between Shameless & Ozark and looking forward to the return of Stranger Things and perhaps a Season 2 for Sharp Objects. Breaking Bad is one of my all-time favorites! I also like to binge-watch Riverdale to see how they recreate the characters from my childhood comic strip.”
What is something people don’t know about you?
“I may seem like the calm quiet type but there is a party-animal inside always trying to break-out. Ha!”
What is your favorite place to visit?
“I love to visit the island of St. Thomas and walk on the beautiful beaches.”
Any last words?
“Hmmmm…. It’s been a good ride here since I started out part-time in 2006. Concepts has evolved in many ways and I’ve gained experience in so many areas, personally and professionally.”
**If you would like a word game challenge, and I mean CHALLENGE, then play Laraine on Words with Friends. I can personally guarantee that she’ll win!
