Happy anniversary to us! This year, Remotion is turning 5 and we would like you to join the party! Celebrate with us by getting to know us more through a series of interviews of our partners Per Willebrand, Hannes Bünger and Lena Pierre, focusing on Remotion, its past and future, but also on the humans behind this success story.
Today, we meet Lena, our change leader! Lena kindly accepted to answer a few questions about herself, her role at Remotion, and shares with us some fun anecdotes!
As a kid, I wanted to become an actress and later, I saw myself being a lawyer in a chic pencil skirt and high heels…
Hi Lena! Can you tell us a bit more about yourself?
Hello there! My name is Lena. I’m a social, analytical and very easily engaged problem solver. I thrive in inclusive teamwork that is ambitious, goal oriented and at the same time relaxed with room for lots of humour and laughter!
What do you love about your job?
I love to meet with clients to understand their ambitions and challenges, team up and together start supporting their transformation journey.
What’s a typical day like for you?
It’s mainly discussing different initiatives with clients, preparing, performing or documenting workshops or various meetings, topped with some Power Point production.
How do you see yourself in 5 years?
I really enjoy working with business transformation and it’s so rewarding these days since the focus and understanding of my 3 favorite areas; customer-centricity, data in all shapes & agile ways of working, have never been greater. Many companies have come a long way, but in general there is still lots of untapped potential to pursue. In 5 years, I think that the scene will be even more innovative and interesting!
What was your first job?
I literally was attached to a Photostat copy machine, photostatting all day 3 weeks in a row, storing the copies in brown boxes that eventually piled up. This was the summer between 7th and 8th grade. I was 14 and happy about the free instant chocolate that came straight from a machine!
And what was your dream job as a kid?
As a kid, I wanted to become an actress and later, I saw myself being a lawyer in a chic pencil skirt and high heels. SVT was broadcasting “Lagens änglar” (L.A. Law) at the time. At that time, the American courtroom seemed more appealing compared to my assignment with the copy machine…
What is your favorite movie?/Netflix show?
For many years, I spent very little time watching TV. I remember though my hour per week session with “Bron” at 9PM on Sundays. I didn’t have Netflix until 2014, but then, during a week with the flu, I binge watched all released seasons of Mad Men in a row. My husband counted 39h hours… Loved it! Since then, I watched tons of series and documentaries.
What is on your bucket list?
Travelling through India with my family
If you could invite anyone (from the present or the past) to dinner, who would it be and why?
My beloved grand-father who has played a significant role in my life. Would have loved to catch up with talks, laughter and love.
What’s your go-to guilty pleasure?
Ice-cream, lots of creamy italian ice-cream.
What’s your favorite way to spend a day off?
With family and friends, some wine and a 2h tennis session!
