Selina worked with FlightCentre for ten years before joining Chillisauce to help run the agency’s incentives and leisure business.

Boss says Michael Chidzey, marketing director: "Since joining Chillisauce, Selina has transformed the company’s product department, merging both business-to- consumer and business-to-business teams and working hard to build and develop a strong team around her."

Best project I’ve worked on We ran an internal incentive initiative and gave everyone in the company their own part to play. We took staff to Valencia and feedback said that it was the best trip they’d ever been on. We’ve repeated the initiative again this year to make this an annual trip.

Most challenging moment I was an account manager at FlightCentre for Malaysia Airlines [when an aircraft crashed in the Ukraine in 2014]. We had to find out if we had any customers on board before working with the airline to help recover its business.

Dream client I have a real interest in the music industry so would like to work on an event like The Miami Winter Music Conference.

Alternative career A gin distiller.

Goals before 40 To make it to product director and to help Chillisauce become one of the top five agencies in the UK.
