This month, Jacobs is recognizing Irena Kuyath from our Category Management team in Cosmetics! Irena loves her role because one thing that was missing in her previous role was personal and professional advancement, learning new tricks of the trade, and being able to challenge herself. What she enjoys about being a part the Jacobs team is having access to various tools that allow her to learn more about the industry she represents, as well as professional trainings that are held on a monthly basis.
Irena spent 10 years at a home shopping channel working in various departments and she loved the thrill of live television. A highlight of working there was "how much it changed my personality professionally and personally - in a good way," explains Irena. "I became more nimble, adaptive to last minute changes, and patient; which very quickly helped me develop problem solving skills and be able to come up with quick solutions to unexpected problems." Away from work, Irena loves sci-fi movies and shows and one of her favorite movies is The Fifth Element. Irena love spending time with family and snuggling up with her Welsh Corgi named Stewart. Congrats, Irena! Happy to have you on the team!
