I started my journey at KEF Holdings in 2016. As I am normally quite a shy person, I found it difficult to adapt at first, but with the support and encouragement of the KEF team, I quickly settled in. With its diverse company culture and amazing work environment, KEF has given me a platform to grow both professionally and personally, and I am very lucky to be part of such a wonderful organisation.Sheila OrtegaFront Office Executive
