Meet the team | Aurélie

The goal of these articles is to introduce the members of our team.
Here is Aurélie Petitjean, Office Manager, who joined Per Angusta 2 years ago!

Let’s start with a quick Chinese portrait!

If you were a dish?
A winter dish, my mom’s blanquette. A summer dish: Tomatoes with Burrata 🍅

A destination?
Sri Lanka, I loved the diversity of the landscapes, the kindness of the Sri Lankans and the sunrise at the top of the Adams Peak! 🇱🇰

A famous character?
The genius in Aladdin to be able to grant everyone’s wishes 🧞‍♂️

A tool? 🛠
A Swiss Army knife! Polyvalent and as practical for cutting sausage as it is for opening a bottle of Saint Joseph.

What’s your last impulse purchase?
I bought a bike a few weeks ago. I wanted to get started for several months and the Covid crisis accelerated my purchase! But a few days later I broke my wrist when I fell… 😢

What did you do before joining Per Angusta?

I studied at Skema Lille business school and found my first job as marketing assistant at Wonderbox in Paris.

When I arrived in Lyon, I met the founder of the startup Citylity who was launching a mobile application for property managers and joined him in the adventure as an office manager. There I discovered the startup world and the network in Lyon. A few years later, I joined the startup Holi, which sold connected objects around sleep, still as an office manager.

What is your current role within the Team?

For almost 2 years at Per Angusta, I’ve had a very polyvalent role. I’m in charge of both accounting and human resources. I also manage sales administration, internal communication and general services. My missions are very different and that’s what I love about my job! I am working closely with internal teams (sales, marketing, etc.) as well as with our external partners (accounting firm, lawyers, insurance broker, etc.) or our customers and suppliers.

Tell us about a project that you are particularly proud to have participated in Per Angusta?

As Maxime, I am very proud to have co-organized our last 3 Users Clubs with Valérie, our marketing and communication manager. It was a real teamwork and I really appreciated the event aspect in order to make our customers live a new and enriching experience. Another project that I enjoyed a lot is the organization of our 1st seminar last October with 17 employees. I was free to organize this event and I loved being able to pan for my colleagues a program mixing work and relaxation in a very nice place without telling the team anything! Seeing their smiles and hearing their thanks at the end of the stay was the best reward!

Why did you want to join Per Angusta?

I had the chance to get to know Pierre, our founder and the Per Angusta team before joining them. We shared the same office when I was working at Holi. I helped Per Angusta on administrative and financial aspects on a timeshare basis. When Pierre had me review the job offer he had written for an office manager position, I immediately wanted to apply. I knew that the project was serious and that the team was just as friendly!

Come on, you can tell us … 😉 is there something that you’re particularly proud of?

To have performed a 2-minute monologue on the imposed theme of South Africa during an improv show in front of 100 people.
