Watching our Metis Ireland team grow and thrive is a privilege. The buzz in the office when we’re together in person is unbeatable. It’s a room full of people working together for a common cause – your future.
We’re thrilled to have recently welcomed three new outstanding individuals to the team in Limerick: Eoin O’Brien and Kasia Preising, who join us as Client Services Executives, and Susan Walsh, who has come on board as a Private Client Manager.
You’ll get to know Eoin and Kasia in the coming months, but today we’ve got our spotlight on Susan. As she settles into her role, Susan will be guiding clients through their financial journey and helping them to reach their goals, no matter what they are.
Hi Susan! Thank you for joining us in the spotlight, we realise it’s early in your Metis Ireland journey but why not start with a bang, eh?
Let’s start off easy: please describe the kind of work you do every day in three words.
Do they have to make sense as a sentence?
Okay, I would say: Planning, connecting, engaging
Now, usually we ask what your proudest moment has been so far, but we appreciate it’s still very early days for you! So we’ll flip that one on its head: what are you most looking forward to about working at Metis Ireland?
I’m so proud to be joining a company where everyone is enthusiastic about what they do and the client’s needs always come first. You don’t get that everywhere!
It’s what we pride ourselves on. And clearly it shows through, because we seem to attract people with the same values. Susan, tell us the quote or phrase that goes through life with you.
‘What is for you won’t pass you’. If something doesn’t happen then maybe it’s just not meant to be. We need to look for the positives in all situations.
Ever the optimist, we love that attitude.
What’s in your Metis LifePlan?
Life is short, so my goals are simple but meaningful.
Firstly, to enjoy life with my family. Secondly, to one day own a little house by the beach in either South Kerry or Italy – I’m not fussy.
A house by the sea sounds like bliss. Where is the most interesting place you’ve been to?
Well, I once spent four days climbing Machu Picchu… it was so tough but absolutely amazing. So I would have to say either that, or the time I went to Borneo to see the orang-utans!
That is incredible! Susan, do you have anybody that you consider a hero?
That’s a hard one. I admire so many people, but ‘hero’ is a big word.
My hero has to be my late mum. She taught me the value of hard work, honesty, respect, and to never judge a book by its cover.
What wonderful values to have carried forwards from her life. Let’s finish in that same vein of good advice: If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?
Grab life with both hands and don’t doubt yourself. You got this!
Thank you Susan, it’s been a pleasure getting to know you today in our spotlight.
