More About Me

My professional experience is related to the financial industry, where I have worked for many years, gaining significant expertise and establishing myself as a skilled expert in the field of corporate finance, investment banking, risk management, financial business analysis, and restructuring. I have been extremely dedicated and motivated in a job that I considered a dream come true, and I particularly enjoyed working with people, brainstorming, and finding solutions for complex situations. Along with the development of my professional competencies, my managerial career has also evolved.

A special privilege for me was the business collaboration with clients, entrepreneurs, and leaders in various industries and business sizes, from small business owners to top executives of multinational companies. I can also say that I have witnessed and supported the development of leaders of now prominent regional corporations from their early stages. I take pride in their achievements, and my own experience has been enriched by conducting detailed business analyses and assessments, as well as through personal contacts and collaboration. I have gained insights into the background of these successes, the tactics employed, as well as the personal characteristics and values of the leaders behind these accomplishments.

Dreams come with nightmares too, yes, there were crisis situations. With the passage of time, we look at them from a different perspective and can grasp their true dimensions. By analyzing the root causes of problems, we can understand how we managed such situations, what we succeeded in, and what could be improved. Another valuable experience that I can share and preparing others for effective crisis management in various situations.

In addition to the skills and experience I have acquired; I strongly believe in continuous learning and professional development. I actively seek opportunities to expand my knowledge and keep up with trends and advancements in the business world. Therefore, I previously chose, and now I am conducting further education and training in the field of coaching, I enrolled in one of the internationally recognized coaching certification programs.
