Working at Nevion – Q&A with Anna Marciniec
Meet Anna Marciniec, Global Order Management Director at Nevion in Poland.
We’re back with a new entry in our ‘Q&A with the Architects’ series, and this time we spoke to Anna Marciniec, Global Order Management Director at Nevion in Poland. Anna discusses her role in establishing the Polish entity of Nevion, the aspects of the business she most enjoys and her admiration for her colleagues.
What attracted you to join Nevion as part of your career journey and what is your role there now?
I was working for a contractor of Nevion called NOTE when an opportunity arose to join the Nevion team in 2010. I knew many of the people at the business already and was aware of how solution-oriented they were, and I was immediately taken in by the positive working atmosphere. I’m now the Global Order Management Director for Nevion, based in Poland.
How has your role progressed whilst you’ve been at Nevion?
When I joined in 2010, the Polish entity of the business was just getting started, and I was a one-woman team dealing with the processing of orders for the Norwegian branch as an internal customer. Over time, I started working with the entities in the UK, Asia and the USA as well. After that, I moved into working with external customers and other business partners, and my team is now responsible for the processing of global orders from all Nevion customers, including logistics, invoicing and payments.
What three words would you use to describe Nevion?
The three words I would use to sum up Nevion are the people, culture and the team. I really think that it’s the people that make this company such a great place to work, and during my years here I’ve met so many that I’ve become close friends with. My colleagues are specialists in what they do and are very willing to share their knowledge, which makes for a really comfortable and welcoming working environment. There’s a culture of openness and respect for each other which encourages people to speak up if they need to raise any concerns.
What interested you about working in the broadcast industry?
My background isn’t technical so my initial motivations to join Nevion are likely to be different to many other people, but since I’ve been with the company I’ve witnessed first-hand the role that we have played in the broadcasting industry. It’s amazing to think that my team has ultimately helped people around the globe be able to watch major sporting events such as the Olympics.
Can you tell us about a project you have worked on during your time at Nevion that you are most proud of?
With my team being responsible for the logistics of all our orders, we’re essentially involved in each and every project. Because of this I’m proud of the fact that we’ve always completed our tasks quickly and efficiently to enable us to play a key role in the wider business. On a personal level, I’m proud of creating a global order management team in Gdansk in Poland that consistently ensures customer satisfaction.
What is your favorite thing about working for Nevion?
Nevion really cares about its people, and that’s made clear by our management team and from the way that everyone treats each other in the business. We work efficiently together and ensure that we deliver impactful projects but at the same time we get to enjoy ourselves. It’s a brilliant working atmosphere and something that is truly unique to Nevion.
What new technology/ innovation excites you the most in the broadcasting world?
While I’m not directly involved in the building and creation of new technology, a really exciting concept that I’ve become aware of is the broadcast industry’s move towards IP and virtualization, as it facilitates a far more economic way of using equipment, while still achieving the highest quality and bringing about the best results. This can only be a positive evolution for the wider sector and will help to meet customer requirements moving forward.
