Meet a Kiiper: Cristina & Ellie

Posted on by Kelsey Sleek, Office Manager

Every month or two, we profile a Kiiper (or two!) so you can get to know our team a little better.

Cristina Resch and Ellie Reason are Kiip’s dynamic duo that reside in our Chicago office. Cristina has been the Midwest sales director for five years, and Ellie has been the account manager for two years. Together, they dominate Kiip’s mid-market sales.

When did you start working at Kiip?

Ellie: I started in May 2016.

Cristina: I joined the team September 2013.

What do you do?

Ellie: Account management with a side of selling!

Cristina: Sales director for the Midwest.

What do you love most about working at Kiip?

Ellie: I enjoy working with great people who are invested in Kiip’s products and meeting new clients.

Cristina: After four and a half years, I’m still hearing from clients that we have a unique product offering, even with the oversaturation of vendors in the marketplace. Internally, everyone is open to collaborate and help each other out - Kiipers aren’t just out for themselves.

When you’re not at Kiip what are you most likely doing?

Ellie: Working out and drinking wine with friends

Cristina: Trying new restaurants with friends or on the couch with my Frenchie, Bagel (shameless plug: follow @bagel_the_frenchie on Instagram!).

What is your favorite Kiip integrated app?

Ellie: Soundhound.

Cristina: Runtastic.

Favorite drink to order at happy hour?

Ellie: White wine, or a tequila-based cocktail if I’m feeling jazzy!

Cristina: Tito’s soda with two lemons or a dirty martini with bleu cheese olives, depending on how I feel.

What’s your favorite movie?

Ellie: My Best Friend’s Wedding, White Chicks and Bridesmaids.

Cristina: Fun Fact: I’m not really into movies. But, if there’s a Law & Order SVU marathon on there’s a 100% chance I’ll be watching -- if it’s not during work hours, of course.

What is your favorite song right now?

Ellie: “Summer Breeze” by Chris Brown.

Cristina: “Bad at Love” by Halsey.

Do you have any hidden talents?

Ellie: Horseback riding and dancing.

Cristina: Flying trapeze.
