Appnet has two movers and shakers to talk about this month:
Melissa Peach (right), long time Appnet staffer and organiser of many top conferences, is on maternity leave from the middle of this month. Says Appnet: “Mel has done a wonderful job over the past few years – her warm and friendly personality will be sadly missed.” And so say all of us!
Kavi Rama-Yalumalai (left) is Mel’s replacement. Kavi has a strong background in customer service and support, as well as project management. Having arrived from South Africa six months ago she’s loving it – she is excited to be at Appnet and is looking forward to working with members.
