Bienvenue Céline!

Céline Le Goff is the newest addition to the European team, working alongside French-speaking General Manager Keith and European Project Manager Emma.

We caught up with Céline and did a Q&A to get to know her a bit better…

So Céline, welcome! Tell us a bit about yourself.
Well first of all I want to extend my thanks to Keith and Emma for welcoming me into the team and also for the welcome I received when I came to Macclesfield in August. Even though I don’t speak English, there was no problem with a language barrier and everyone was very accommodating.

It will be my 50th birthday in 2 months’ time, I’m married with 3 children and a little grandson who is 3 weeks old!

I’m a very honest, open and positive person.

What previous work experience do you have in this industry?
I started working at 17 and I have never stopped! I worked in insurance, then manufacturing before finding my way into installations.

I spent 24 years with Fieldflex France (which is a cosmetics installations company) and as with Momentum Instore France, I started right at the beginning of the company and worked with my colleagues to build it all together. That’s why I was so happy that Keith brought me on board to be part of this new venture.

Time for a speed round…
Favourite pastime?
I don’t really have any in particular, I love doing all sorts and discovering new things.
I adore spending my time with my family and friends.

Favourite animal?
Dogs. They are such loyal, loving and happy animals, but they can be calm too.

Favourite place you have visited?
At the moment it would be Corsica, but there are a lot of different places that I would love to visit.

Happiest memory?
I love life too much to be able to pick just one!

If you could eat any food for the rest of your life what would it be?
La baguette tradi graine* topped with butter that has little flakes of sea salt in it, with cheese.
*(it’s a type of French baguette made with grains, a bit like a granary baguette. It’s really yummy)

If you could have one super power what would it be?
I’d love to be able to fly so I could have that feeling of total freedom, like nothing can get in your way.

Favourite season and why?
Definitely the summer. I enjoy the sunshine, going out on day trips, getting together outside with friends for a drink and the long summer days.  

What football team do you support?
France of course! Our new national team is young, full of great players, but they are respectful as well.

Favourite dessert?
Crêpes with chocolate and whipped cream

Lastly, what are you most looking forward to in your new role?
I’m really looking forward to being a part of the growth and development of Momentum Instore France.

Helping to make sure that Momentum Instore France is the go to company for our clients installation needs.

Also, learning to speak English as well as Keith and Emma can speak French.

Thanks Celine!!
