Happy New Year, Newget friends, fans and enthusiasts far and wide! Welcome to 2013! It’s a new year, a new chapter, a fresh white blank page ready to be filled with new adventures, milestones and dreams to be realized.
We here at The Kompany sincerely hope that you had a wonderful, warm and fun filled holiday season. We hope you enjoyed delicious meals and delectable treats, joyful and festive libations, and plenty of lively mixin’ and minglin’ and jingle bell rockin’ with your nearest and dearests.
We all certainly did. At least I think we all did… there’s quite a few of us here at The Newget Kompany that help out in various and fun ways, and sometimes it can be tough to keep track of all the helpers. So this is probably the perfect time to do a rundown of our roster and introduce the team that keeps Newget alive?
Without further ado:
Michelle: The Chief Newget Artisan; creator of The Newget Kompany and full time Ambassador of all things decadent and divine.
Kim B: The Bossy one; Administrative Coordinator for invoicing and lead of packaging. Kim is in charge of, well, bossing people around (imagine that?), though she prefers that we call it “supervising”.
Donna B: Assists with administrative tasks and packaging. The Official Kitten Herder on our crew, Donna is an avid volunteer at the Edmonton Humane Society and regularly fosters litters of kittens in her home.
Rae P: The Creative one; assists with packaging and is full of good ideas, but mostly just writes this blog from San Francisco and occasionally moonlights on Twitter trying to be witty.
Pam: The lady in charge of the number crunching, (aka: Accounting) and when she’s not wrangling her children or the Newget’s books, she also provides back up packaging help as needed.
Erin, Emilia, Jenn M: The Sales girls; the cute and perky faces of the Newget Kompany they work the sales booths at markets and festivals selling product and wooing customers with delicious samples.
Jenn F: Communication strategy. Don’t let the reserved exterior of this prim and proper writer fool you, underneath lies the heart of a rocker chick!
Lien and Kim: The Cooks that whip up batches and batches of the delicious, but not too sweet, Newget product for us in their industrial kitchen.
Nicholas: This curly haired whiz kid is the muscle behind the production team. Some people might call him Q-Tip, cause of the wild fro of curls, but he’s just Nicholas to us. Assists with product slicing and packaging as needed. He no slice, we no package.
Brian P: Michelle’s sweet husband and Newget’s PA/Sherpa; Can always be counted on for encouraging loud music, tall drinks and providing plenty of delicious eats.
So there we all are, the many minions of The Newget Kompany! Do you feel like you know us a little bit better?
Wait, there’s one more important person we can’t leave out…..
You: The valued Newget fan, friend and enthusiast.
Here’s to resolutions of consuming more desserts yet wearing smaller pants, Cheers to the New Year, friends!
