Alice, who is originally from Germany, is very passionate about discovering new cultures. Before she began her study program, she fixed-up a van and discovered New Zealand. Upon return, she decided to study International Business. As part of her study program she completed a six-month internship at BMW in Munich. As a member of the special sales team for VIPS and Diplomats she discovered her passion for sales. Additionally, if her internship at BMW had not confirmed her love for sales, then certainly her work at a small company focused on renewable energy did.

At Sensaterra, Alice saw the opportunity to create a multinational impact and seized it. Obviously having access to high class coffee and tea was not a bad thought either. Currently she is enjoying lots of good cups of coffee, while being responsible for the German Market.

Her motto: Be honest!

Camille was then hired by P&G France to start working as a Sales Representative on the field during a year, and got promoted as a National Key Account Manager. She wanted to offer a product that affects everyone's daily life, so she decided to launch Sensaterra with Denis, Maxence & Clément. She is in charge of Sales, Product & Operations.
