Vanessa X.

United States


Finance and Marketing professional with 10 years of U.S. and international experience in the financial services and specialty chemicals industry with a particular focus on project management, innovation and marketing and strategy deployment. I am an open-minded and tenacious problem solver with a proven track record in "getting things done" in a smart way, by collaborating and sharing best practices, tackling the elephants in the room and driving thought leadership on all levels. My education and broad experiences in a variety of roles enables me to address key business challenges with nuance and creativity, with the aim of positioning companies for long-term, sustainable growth. I have also held a variety of leadership roles within non-profit organizations where I have gained strategic insights into solving challenging, enterprise-wide problems that do not have a one-size-fits-all approach. My personal interests include investigative journalism, travel (60+ countries), international development, impact investing, frontier/emerging markets, public speaking, mentoring, and organizational psychology.
