Hasini Alwis: Employee Spotlight

August 21, 2019 / by Anna Vahromejeva

Tell us a bit about yourself.

In a nutshell, I was born in Sri Lanka and my parents moved to Melbourne Australia (where they have four seasons in one day!). I lived in Australia for practically most of my life, until recently when I moved to Singapore with my husband.

Originally I thought I’d go down a career path that involved IT Networking, as this is the subject I completed my degree in. This was until I got my first job at a publisher after following a recommendation from a friend, the rest is history and I’ve been in the media industry ever since!

I love documentaries, especially anything related to crime. I’m also a huge Marvel fan. I have a cheeky cavoodle named Charlie who keeps me on my toes every day!

Why did you decide to join LoopMe? 

When I decided to move to Singapore, I had the opportunity to revisit the direction I want my career to go in, and also the opportunity to focus on what I wanted to do. After conducting some research, I was interested in moving in the AdTech space as I was intrigued by the direction this industry was moving towards. Not long after that I was introduced to LoopMe by a friend, who at the time was one of LoopMe’s key clients.

I was so impressed with how LoopMe were able to use AI to optimise campaigns in real-time. Having been agency side before, I could see this technology being a game changer. Instantly, I knew I had to work for this business and be a part of the team!

What’s your job role and day to day responsibilities?

As a Sales Manager, my key day-to-day responsibilities include: being out in the market, driving a LoopMe presence amongst our existing clients and agencies, meeting new clients and educating them about LoopMe’s product offerings. I also respond to RFP’s, build my pipeline and keep an open eye for my next sales opportunity! 

What’s been the best moment at LoopMe?

That’s a hard question! I have so many awesome moments here, it’s hard to pinpoint just one. I guess the moment that stands out the most would be when I met the team for the first time. We all get along so well, we’re like a little family! We work hard to spread LoopMe’s brand presence across APAC.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

Before I started my career in Media, I was an Assistant Designer for a shoe company called: Windsor Smith. Before I left I decided to name my favourite shoe design after myself! A pair of boots named “Hassi Boots” still exist (Google it!).
