I keep telling people “I grew up here” as I learned so much along the way. I grew fond of people I work with and fell in love with the brand.

How did you get to work today?

I drove to work in my M240 in Sport Mode, listening to holiday tunes playing on the radio.

 

On which project/topic are you currently working? What was your most exciting project?

I am part of the Controlling team at BMW Group Financial Services. I am currently working on forecasting 2019 year-end financial performance.

The most exciting project I have worked on so far was the implementation of a financial reporting standard (IFRS 9) for the Canadian market. This project allowed me to work closely with other BMW markets, as well as our Headquarters in Munich. My primary focus was on the topic of Impairment of Financial Assets. You can tell by now that I like numbers. 

 

What makes working at BMW Group special for you?

My personal and professional growth at BMW makes work here special – I started my career at BMW as a third year undergraduate student and was hired full-time after graduation. I have been working here for almost eight years in various roles and departments. I keep telling people “I grew up here” as I learned so much along the way. I grew fond of people I work with and fell in love with the brand.

 

Tell us something your coworkers don’t know about you?

In my spare time, I am working towards becoming a Certified Wine Specialist. I hope to use this skill to throw great dinner parties. I would recommend you pair your next steak with a glass of Barolo!
