“KD!!!! DEUCE!!!!! The day has come; congratulations! I cannot tell you how many other leaders have come up to me recently and asked, “When the hell are you going to promote Kristina?”. Here we are, and I couldn’t name a more deserving person than KD. She has created a brand for herself across the company as one of those leaders you know will help take this company to new heights. From crushing a recruiting desk in the Medical Regulatory & Scientific division to flourishing as a Recruiting Trainer, Kristina has excelled tremendously with whatever comes her way. She does so with ease, confidence, and fearlessness, which is admirable. Many top-notch recruiters at ALKU can say Kristina helped accelerate their successful careers. I couldn’t be more excited to see her thrive as a Recruiting Training Manager and all the good that is bound to follow. Congrats, KD!!!” -Dennis Kapsimalis
“KRISTINA! KD! Congratulations on your well-deserved promotion!!! Kristina is arguably one of the most dedicated leaders at ALKU. The second Kristina joined the Talent pillar, she made an immediate positive impact. She has done an outstanding job assisting recruiters on how to improve and be as successful as they possibly can be. In fact – anyone Kristina has mentored since joining Talent has seen an average 95% spread increase! One thing I love about KD is her absolute passion & excitement to see others reach goals that they have been striving for. One of my favorite things about Kristina is her ability to build relationships with anyone across the company, no matter their group. She can command whatever room she is in and may be one of the funniest people I have ever met. Kristina has also been an amazing AWE leader; ALKU is so lucky to have her!! CONGRATULATIONS AGAIN, KD!” – Micaela Damiano
