“Hothead is a place where I feel at home. The current CEO is also my boss from the 90’s. I feel thankful for the culture that he created where I have been given the opportunity to challenge myself and to wear many different hats. I’m constantly learning something new everyday and surrounded by awesome colleagues. With my diverse abilities, Hothead is a place where I feel appreciated and valued.”
