My keys to success are focusing on having not only the right knowledge but also the right set of soft skills in order to get the job done. My key soft skills are flexibility and adapatability, which has been proven in a number of international situations, critical thinking, quick decision-making, good communication and interpersonal skills, a high sense of responsibility with a strong work ethic, and a focus on honesty and integrity. In addition, staying humble allows me to keep listening and observing my clients, my superiors and my team, which lets me put the right people with the right skills in touch with each other in order to assure success for everyone. I would like to expand personally and professionally. I am fluent in English, German, Italian, Slovak and French.
I am currently CFO and Board Member of both UniCredit Leasing CZ and UniCredit Leasing Slovakia, a.s., managing 20 Group companies with a combined total net profit of approximately EUR 20 mln and total assets of EUR 1.5 bln.In the course of the past 7 years I have also worked on a number of projects, including - implementation of Hyperion as a consolidation tool for 350 companies in 15 countries - formation of a Leasing Holding for shareholdings in 15 countries, especially working to define and implement the structures and processes in Planning & Control- realization of the turn-around project for a company in economic crisis in the role of CFO- implementation of Navision as a core leasing and accounting system in the role of project sponsor- simplification of a company's reporting environment through the implmentation of QlikviewIn order to get where I am today I went through a number of unusual steps. I originally majored in dance performance and French with a minor in German at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. During my studies I spent 1 semester studying in Vienna, Austria and 1 academic year in Besancon, France. After graduation I was fortunate to get a Fulbright Scholarship for Vienna, Austria. With the scholarship I did research on the culture of modern dance in Austria and taught English as an English language assistant in a local high school for 2 years.I completeing the Fulbright I decided to permanently move to Vienna. For the first 7 years, I taught Business English and aerobics in order to earn a living. I realized during these years that I yearned for a more stable job, so I asked my boyfriend at the time to teach me simple Accounting. Within 2 months I had a job at the Vienna School of Business (Wirtschaftsuniversitaet Wien) in the department for the MBA programs. While working in that job I did an online MBA with Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana. In addition, I took Accounting and Tax speciailization courses at WIFI Wien, a business training academy in Vienna. After 2 years in that job I moved to Manpower Austria in Vienna, working as a Business Analyst. I entered the leasing business 1,5 years later, starting as a Controller for CEE subsidiaries in Bank Austria Creditanstalt Leasing (now UniCredit Leasing Austria) in November 2005. In April 2007, I was moved by the company to UniCredit Leasing SpA in Milan, Italy as Controller, and later Head of Planning & Control for the whole leasing sub-group (16 countries) for 3 years. In 2010 I was moved to Bratislava, Slovakia, as CFO of UniCredit Leasing Slovakia. Then, in February 2013 I was also made CFO of UniCredit Leasing CZ in Prague, Czech Republic.Having worked in a number of different environments and lived in the USA, Austria, Italy, France, Slovakia and the Czech Republic and speaking 5 languages, I have proven myself to be extremely flexible and highly adaptable in a number of international environments. I have developed strong leadership skills, especially being able to quickly adapt to the differing leadership needs arising from differences in underlying corporate and national cultures.
