Zsófia Bányai, Operations Manager: Episode 48
Zsófia Bányai wanted to be a historian, but that didn’t quite work out. So she specialied in VAT, which lead her to company where she was able to adjust their systems into something more productive and bit by bit she became their operations manager. You can find Zsófia on LinkedIn.
Being Good with Being Different
Because of her background in history, Zsófia looks at problems differently than other finance students did, and now differently than other operations managers.

Zsófia didn’t set out to become an operations manager, but she followed the opportunities that presented themselves and found a great career that she enjoys.
