Meet Anna Maria, who is a Senior Director in IT Strategy and Innovation at Sunrise. As a child she followed her curiosity to take things apart and put them back together. Inspired by her father and by her mathematics and physics teacher, she fell in love with technology.

Anyway, at the end of the 1990s telecommunication was on the rise and captured Anna Maria’s interest.
