2 December 2016 Community

why-running-groups-work-1

Here at Amer Sports I’m driving forward the development of our digital products and services, to deliver a competitive edge for our brands. In my mind, I’m a digital business developer, on a mission to create inspiring and exciting experiences for the sporting consumer.

Outside of work, I’m keen to improve in various outdoor activities. I would love to have more time for golf and sailing but in practice I’m in the gym or running. My interest is not so much in the performance of sports but rather in the ability to discover and test my own limits as well as to explore different techniques, sports and locations.

st_team_katarinaPlease tell us your story. Who is Katarina and what does she enjoy doing aside from her daily job?

When I’m not working as a Customer Support Manager and when I’m not with my family, I spend my free time mostly in the gym. It gives me the feeling of both mental and physical balance and it’s something I like doing. Some time ago I was also a part of multinational rugby team. It was a rare and interesting sport to train, especially for a woman, but I enjoyed it a lot.
