I had the opportunity to work with Tena for two straight years on the Franck tea category, a category and the brand that was especially dear to her and me.
In the Client-Agency relationship, the Client’s trust is crucial, and I could sense that with Tena, which of course reflected on the cooperation and working atmosphere on each project.
She left the creative thinking to the Agency with great confidence, and with her knowledge of the category, she further enriched each project.

What I especially loved about Tena was her emphasis on excellence and high quality, from the smallest communication material, all the way to the 360 ‘campaign concepts.
I want to thank her for all the joint projects, late production hours and gatherings and I wish her much success on her new journey!

I worked with Tena on several projects after she was appointed responsible for digital marketing in Franck. The most important was Franck webshop implementation, where she was the project leader. Tena manages to get along with pretty complex project coordination on a number of activities through all internal organizational units (IT, Supply Chain, Sales, Accounting, …) as well as with external partners working on webshop functionalities, design, payment execution etc. She is young, curious, ambitious, knows what she wants and not afraid to pursue it.

I had the opportunity to work with Tena on a few occasions, among others, as a part of a design thinking workshop. During the workshop, we developed a solution applying design thinking methodology and tools such as in-depth interviews, customer journeys, and prototyping. Because of her creativity and proactive approach, Tena has been a valuable part of the team. Above all, I value her positive attitude and team spirit, and she comes with my heartfelt recommendation.

As Marketing Director, I had a pleasure to have Tena in my team as a Brand Manager and afterwards Digital Manager. Tena has excelled in these roles, exhibiting high levels of productivity and work quality. She possesses the ultimate “can do” attitude while taking on all tasks with positive energy and a smile. Her upbeat personality and engaging personal style enable her to interact effectively with the whole team as a great team player. Proactive and inspirational, she takes the initiative to go beyond the expected parameters of her job.
Tena is not only out of box thinker- there is no box to put her in as continuously suggesting new approaches and ideas to implement in fast-changing market environment.

Senior Brand Manager

In the last two years, I had a great privilege to work and cooperate with Tena while she was a brand manager as well as a digital manager in Franck. Professionally I can say that Tena is a responsible, reliable, hard-working colleague and great team player always ready to help. Despite her short work experience, with her acquire knowledge, she successfully launched several products, campaigns, helped in setting up of brand strategies and in the digital transformation of the company. She is continuously seeking new knowledge and proposes new ideas on how to maximize promotional activities as well as how to improve the business in general. Any team or company can benefit from her knowledge and skills. But above all that Tena is a great person and dear friend that I would like to have and keep in my life.
