Head of Asian Markets
Over 17 years ago, Kelli joined Stellar as the Centre Manager of our first centre in Robina, Queensland. She came to us from the banking world, bringing with her a curious spirit and a lifelong love of numbers and sport. But despite ten years in the finance world, it was in outsourcing she found her home — discovering an industry that gracefully balances people and economics.
Kelli wholeheartedly puts the company first, believing in “just going where the gaps are”. This approach to her work has seen her take roles requiring a lot of travel, before taking her biggest leap yet – living and working in the Philippines as the Head of Asian Markets.
She’s based in Manila but thrives in multiple timezones. Living in bustling Manila means needing to be flexible with evening plans, with the ride home from work being a “traffic lottery” that lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to two hours.
Kelli has 1,700 people in her team in Manila and a growing team in the US, and they are what brings her the most joy. Kelli spends her spare time engaging with agents on the frontline. Spending time with her committed and innovative staff “feeds her soul” for the week ahead.
Though she's busy, she's not an “all work and no play” person. Kelli manages to find time to build in some cello practice and some cardio, too – she’s training to do El Camino in Spain in 2018.
