Strategy & Business Dev. Senior Consultant - Javier Varona
After graduating as a Master of Sciences in Civil Engineering by North Carolina State University (Raleigh, NC, USA) and Alfonso X El Sabio University (Madrid, Spain) as the best student of the class, I have spent the last 2 years in Investment Banking and Strategy Consulting roles. These experiences have helped me to combine the analytical and industry knowledge of an Engineer, with the management skills required from a business professional.
These are my past experiences but, what are my professional ambitions for the future?
Aligned with my goal of building a very demanding and international career, I am currently pursuing a very exciting move by having relocated to Singapore with my wife, as a Dependant´s Pass Holder. Therefore, I am fully eligible to work in Singapore – no need for EP, sponsorship or company quota- and I am actively looking for interesting opportunities aligned with my background to keep developing my professional career (immediate availability).
Investment banking and consulting are very demanding industries where the abilities to prioritize, multitask and solve complex problems are essential to deliver on quality and timings. Working so closely with CEOs and top executives, I have learnt that being flexible, getting adapted to new environments and situations and facing new challenges with a positive attitude is key to develop an outstanding career and exceed all the expectations.
When I am not at work, I am an eager traveler (+35 countries visited), a passionate scuba diver and I love to spend time learning languages (I speak Spanish, English, German and Portuguese), practicing sports and socializing with people.
But these short paragraphs are not enough to meet me, let´s talk! If you would like to know more about my background, skills or what I can bring to your company, please feel free to reach me at email@example.com or by Linkedin inbox. It will be a pleasure to chat or to meet you in person better discuss potential opportunities!
