She always has more than several irons in the fire, but don’t worry: she will clean the piles on her desk, make a plan for your needs and sell to you. A wine enthusiast – if not in the office, you can find her with a glass of bubbly.

Malin takes good care of people and cats alike. Outside the travel retail sector, she might have a bright future in the pharmacy industry. She has a pill in her pocket to cure any trouble, and if it can’t be healed with medicine, then her empathy and good thoughts will certainly help.

She came from the field (literally) to our office. A warm-hearted whiskey geek, always ready for new adventures. Nothing is impossible for Mira, and her days tend to include more hours than those of normal people.
