du Pré de Levogne
Chief Happiness Officer
Staf is a certified stress relief consultant. The thing he likes most about his job are the days at the office where he gets more belly rubs than at home and he gets to join lots of walking meetings. In his spare time he socialises with all living creatures (except cats) and is forever in love with the last person to give him a treat.
Xavier aka 'Xavi'

Xavi enjoys long naps and many cuddles. He loves coming to the CENTR office to cheer everyone up but mostly to sleep in our new couches. He loves walks in the park with the CENTR Secretariat and enjoys the treats everyone gives him. Staff satisfaction is high whenever Xavi is around.
