Q&A : FP&A Director at 10B region of 24B global company
I've been a fan of WSO for awhile and I have some free time so decided to do Q&A for those who are interested.
Here's my background.
migrated to U.S. at age of 14, didn't really speak English but was a straight "A" student until senior year (when I decided that grades don't matter in life)
went to public state university, majored in engineering, and graduated with 2.4 GPA (I was doing bare minimum just to get by since I was still believing grades don't matter at the time...which turned out to be a huge mistake!)
was very very fortunate to land an internship (corporate strategy) at current company...which turned into another internship after senior year and then a full-time role with FP&A
been with FP&A for 8 years. Spent a year with internal audit. Became FP&A director at age of 28 thanks to some people who believed in me
currently 3 years in the role. Was on track to become BU CFO/head of finance until COVID-19 hit...and our revenues are currently down 30-40%. Still trying to figure out my next move...
You know the drill. Ask me anything.
