A committed and long-standing member of the Company, Katrina’s focus is on the smooth running of the Deep Blue office and the welfare of her staff. In her role as Office Manager, Katrina is responsible for the recruitment and supervision of the administration and Paraplanner workforce along with the interviewing and short-listing of potential Deep Blue consultants.
