SYNC would like to welcome our new employees, James and Kaleena. The two of them replaced Laura Houtkooper, SYNC’s former employee of two years, at the end of June. Together, James and Kaleena have proved to be a great addition to SYNC and have been juggling various responsibilities at the company. You may have received an email or spoken to one if not both of them on the phone. So who are these two and what are they about? Let’s find out.
James: “In the ever changing world of commercial photography, I have found a home here at SYNC. It sounds funny to say that I have 20 years experience in the photography business but it’s true. Looking back at the call sheet of my professional career, I have found work at one time or another as an Assistant, Darkroom Manager (oh yes!), Studio Manager, Production Coordinator, Location Scout and Photographer. I continue now with SYNC wearing quite a few of those hats. I manage our Equipment Rental Dept. and our three Pre-Loaded Sprinter Vans. In addition to growing that aspect of our business, I produce and coordinate photo shoots for our growing list of editorial and advertising photographers. I look forward to meeting you and helping you get connected with everything you need for your next shoot!”
Kaleena: “Who knew this lady from Iowa would find a home in Hollywood at the hottest equipment rental place around? You better believe I did! When I was asked to work here at SYNC, I was honored. To me it says, “Here, you have my confidence, take what I give you and give it your all.” That’s exactly what I have done here; from answering phones to fielding emails, fulfilling orders, invoicing clients, dabbling in QuickBooks, jump-starting our marketing campaign, and, of course, keeping these guys around here in line. My previous jobs as a personal/administrative assistant and Internet marketing assistant have strengthened my professional skills, which helped land me here at SYNC, a place I can call home.”
