After ten years working in the financing sector, I have developed my career with diverse experiences, from corporate banking to international factoring and fintech. I am now specializing in global trade finance.
During my professional life, I have made several achievements that significantly contributed to the growth of my companies. I arranged the first trade refinancing transaction for MUFG - the leading global financial services group from Japan, which laid the foundation for a newly established transaction banking department.
Besides that, the other success I am most proud of is developing a solid customer base utilizing the factoring function of GT Nexus. In my latest role as Business Development Manager for HSBC, I have been granted a chance to once again pursue my career in global trade finance in the most reputable group.
It is my honor to be selected as a Hinrich Foundation Global Trade Leader Scholar and I have a commitment to secure the values the Foundation stands for. This is a unique opportunity to equip myself with adequate knowledge about global trade, awareness of sustainable supply chain, accessibility to a reputable global trade community and aspiration for entrepreneurship.
