“Unparalleled customer service due to thorough understanding of our clients’ priorities and how they use our services, is what sets Isentia apart.

Isentia’s Chief Commercial Officer, Russ Horell commented, “Both Patricia and Raquel will be instrumental in supporting the executive leadership team in the delivery of Isentia’s strategy. Patricia has a proven track record across new business of all levels: Client wins, upgrades, multi-market sales and government tenders. She was awarded Isentia Salesperson of the Year twice, including in 2019, and every team she heads up always performs exceptionally.”
“Raquel has been the star of the New Zealand business for the past six years. She is also a caring and consistent leader, who builds a strong rapport with her team and helps them to be the best they can be. I know that Raquel has the energy and talent to take the New Zealand business to the next level of success,” Horell added.
