WE REGULARLY PUT THE TEAM OF AUTHENTAGE IN THE SPOTLIGHT AND TODAY WE GIVE THE FLOOR TO SEVERINE. SHE WORKS AS AN OPERATOR FOR AUTHENTAGE AND WORKS MAINLY ON THE BELLEFEU COLLECTION.
I come from West-Flanders (Belgium) and this region is known worldwide for its weaving mills. It will therefore not surprise you that the first 10 years I was active as an operator for carpet manufacturers. One day, I got the chance to follow a brazing course for electronics at an international company. With this knowledge in my pocket, I decided to spread my wings and move to my great love, the city of Antwerp. With a small intermediate step at an international player in mobile phones, I ended up at Authentage.
“The nice working atmosphere at Authentage, as well as the trust that is placed in me and my colleagues, make every working day a pleasure."
How do you experience your work at Authentage?
Feeling trusted by management is not only good for my self-confidence, but for me it even determines whether a company is successful or not.
I get the chance to work independently, there is a lot of variety in my job and I continue to learn every day, so it’s a very attractive challenge for me.
When is a working day successful for you?
I love working on larger products, such as the Bellefeu pendant lamps or complex tailor-made projects. When I can finish one completely, that's a good day at work for me.
WHO IS SEVERINE?
How would colleagues describe you?
I think as someone who is helpful and who is always ready to give them advice.
What is your favourite Authentage lamp?
My favourite Authentage lamp is a difficult choice. I love working on Bellefeu Château Suspension and Bellefeu Rectangular Suspension, but if I really must choose, then Bellefeu Rectangular Suspension is my favourite.
What is your ultimate relaxation?
In my spare time I like to paint. Recently I have started to explore more abstract painting. Creating something with acrylics on canvas is my favourite.
For what people can always wake you at night?
To learn how to kite surf!
