Meet our team: Jasper and Ammar

Not only did Resello recently joined the Pax8 family, but we also have new additions to our team. I decided to get to know them even more and what a better way to get to know someone than through random funny questions? Join me and get to know our new colleagues!

Jasper Andre de la Porte

Cloud Sales Representative (Benelux)

Hey Jasper, Welcome to the team! Tell me a bit about yourself.

Hi Ana, nice to meet you! Sure. I am 24 years old, and I come from the Netherlands. I studied International Business. Because of my studies, I have had the opportunity to live in different countries like New Zealand, the USA, and Germany. Now I am back in the Netherlands and actually just got a new place together with my girlfriend.

I come from a family with all types of professional backgrounds. My dad works in the software industry, my mom is an account manager, and my sister a UX designer, and now I am part of the IT industry. Pretty crazy right?

Sounds amazing! Tell me, what do you like to do in your free time?

Well, I am more a movie and documentary lover than a sporty type of guy. I enjoy quality time with my family, friends, and girlfriend, especially extensive dinner parties. Nothing better than spending your time with good company and a good glass of wine! I love traveling and watches! I know, kind of random, but it’s because of my previous job. I used to sell and buy luxury watches.

So, moving to some more random questions, what is the funniest thing you have ever experienced?

Do you have the whole day? I have experienced so many! But I would have to say, the one time when a good friend of mine got tackled (in a friendly way) during a game and completely ripped his pants for the second time that same day.

If you could eat just one cuisine for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Definitely, Spanish Tapas.

And the last question… if you had a soul animal, what would be it be?

I would say a dog because I like to be around people and I consider myself to be really loyal.

Ammar Darwish

Cloud Sales Representative (DACH)

Hey Ammar, glad to have you here! Tell me about yourself.

Hey Ana, nice to meet you! I am 28 years old and I am originally from Syria, where I studied economy at the University. In 2015 I started the craziest of the adventures I have ever had and came to Germany as a refugee, learned the language, and finally, in 2018 I had the opportunity to pursue a carrier in the IT Industry when I started as a trainee in IT administration. This led me to Resello.

I am single and back home I have a big family: 3 sisters and 2 brothers.

Amazing story Ammar. What do you like to do in your free time?

On a normal daily basis, I like to cook and watch series. I love reading books even more if its Russian literature, like Dostoevsky. I also like reading poems and sometimes I even write some too. On the weekends I like to spend my time with friends. You are most probably going to find me playing football.

What is the funniest thing that you have ever experienced?

I always used to take random videos of my friends without them knowing. So recently I send a friend of mine a video that I took of him 2 years ago and his reaction was just priceless.

If you could only eat one cuisine the rest of your life, what would it be?

Syrian cuisine, without a doubt!

And lastly, If you had a soul animal, what would it be?

Wolf, because I consider myself to be a team player and they work as a pack! I am also brave and if I have to do something or say something I am going to do it; I go straight to the point.
