I have a bachelor degree in Accountancy and I started my professional career through an internship in a midsize company in Rio de Janeiro. From there, I realized that in order to learn more about my field I would need to move into one of the BIG four companies since, on my conception, is one of the richest environments to learn and grow up in the Finance field. Therefore, I started at EY Brazil back in 2011 and stayed there for over 5 years. In EY I had experience serving both public and private companies in several different industries/fields, such as investment banks, broker dealers, investment funds, manufacturing companies, pension plan and non-profitable organizations. Nowadays, I am working at Arlanxeo, a chemical company that is the outcome of a joint-venture between Lanxess and Saudi Aramco. Arlanxeo has the most expressive market share in the synthetic rubber segment and it is now part of the Saudi Aramco group as a subsidiary company. I initially worked for Arlanxeo in Brazil, at accounting department, but I was invited to move to Germany last April as an expatriate, in the position of a business process expert. My role was
mainly dedicated to an IT project of the new SAP S4 HANA implementation, where I provided support to the IT department by sharing my business experience to define future processes and how to design them in the new ERP.
