We have smart people working at Cartera Commerce and they have each contributed greatly to the success of the company. Each month, we plan to feature one team member who can offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse of our company culture and the people who power our business.
This month we’d like to introduce you to Anne Morelli, a senior manager of relationship management who loves to strategize with clients, explore the city of Boston and volunteer.
Alma mater: University of Vermont for undergrad and Boston University for business school
Why did you join Cartera? I joined Cartera in July 2011 because I love entrepreneurial environments. I love how business strategy can be informed by technology strategy, and vice versa; and I knew each day would present new and exciting challenges. All of these pieces were apparent to me as I learned more about the company. I have stayed at Cartera because the people I work with are smart, passionate about what they do, and a lot of fun.
What do you love about your job? I love solving problems for clients and strategizing about how to grow programs. Every day is new and different. I am constantly learning.
What’s it like living and working in the Boston-area? I love Boston. There is a huge technology and intellectual scene; the city itself is so rich in history and tradition – it makes for an interesting juxtaposition.
What are some of your favorite things to do outside of work? I volunteer for my sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta, at the MIT chapter. I am also involved in the Junior League of Boston and enjoy contributing my time to this organization of trained women volunteers. Outside of my extracurricular activities, I love finding new restaurants and hanging out with my friends.
What is your all-time favorite movie? Clueless. No question.
What’s on your DVR right now? I am constantly streaming classic (and not so classic) movies on Netflix. Clueless, The Notebook, and Troop Beverly Hills are definitely favorites.
Where’s your favorite place to vacation? I spend a lot of time with my family in the mountains of Colorado. I always feel like I am getting away from everything while I’m there. As far as new adventures, I have always wanted to go on Safari in Africa. I’ll do that one day!
If you could choose one person to sit down and have coffee with, who would it be? Steve Jobs. Without a doubt. I would love to learn more about his thought process and how he approached problems and challenges that he faced.
What book are you reading? Fall of Giants by Ken Follett and anything else historical fiction.
