Name: Andrea Tamatea
Role: Operations Manager
Company: ESA Publications (NZ) Ltd (subsidiary of The Open Polytechnic of NZ)
My first job in publishing was: Customer Service & Data Entry in 2004.
I’m currently reading: The COVID-19 has been a great chance to catchup on some reading again, first I re-read the whole Harry Potter series and now I’ve got my nose stuck in Becoming by Michele Obama.
My biggest career highlight in publishing has been: Getting an unexpected phone call from the Chairman of the Board and being offered the Operations Manager role when Mark Sayes retired and sold the business to The Open Polytechnic of NZ in 2017.
