Employee Spotlight: Sabrina Menzies, Director of Client Services, APAC
Our team at Innovid is spread across the Americas, EMEA, and APAC. We are so much more than a bunch of separate offices. We are truly a global team. When opportunities arise for our talented and self-driven employees to venture to new regions across the globe, we do everything we can to help make that happen. Case in point: Sabrina Menzies joined Innovid in Chicago six years ago, and she is now one of our valued team members in Sydney. Here’s what this Hans Zimmer superfan had to say about her experiences thus far:
What do you do at Innovid?
I oversee the operational functions and success across the APAC/AU/NZ region, leading and supporting the Client Services team and managing strategic partnerships with our clients from end-to-end. I’m also focused on connecting the needs of the region to our global counterparts and vice versa.
What are some of the things that make you proud to work at a company like Innovid?
In my 6+ years at Innovid, it has been incredible to see how much we’ve grown as a company and how much we’ve collectively achieved. Being a part of Innovid has encouraged me to have a thirst for innovation and to continuously find new ways to grow – and what sets Innovid apart is giving people that room to expand beyond their day-to-day.
I started as an Account Coordinator in our Chicago office and have since had the pleasure of having multiple roles (officially and unofficially), collaborating with several departments, and knowing that my voice and participation was part of an integral change. In 2018 I was given the rare opportunity to support our office in Sydney, which led to a full-time opportunity – never have I been surrounded (globally) by such an intelligent, unique, and inspiring group of people!
Who has influenced you most when it comes to how you approach your work?
My previous manager in the Chicago office, Kristi Martin, has made a profound impact on how I approach my work and continues to be a positive influence even after I had moved offices. Kristi understood my eagerness to take risks and learn new things, and under her leadership she enabled my growth while also showing me how to add structure and process when necessary.
When you’re not at work, you can most likely be found…
…at the beach, being outdoors, or traveling within Australia.
What song/artist is always on your playlist?
Hans Zimmer! He’s been my top Spotify artist since 2018.
