My background comes from in different positions in FMCG of foodservice, retail and convenience businesses.

During my career I was being part of different direct search processes. I compared my experiences and highligts together, because customer experience plays the key role in recruiting process. I regognize that how an earth customer experience could make it better and what kind of consultans represent in different companies or brands. These experiences were extraordinary unique for me to became an entrepreneur. The decission for start an own business was natural for me, because I come from entrepreneur family and I had enough encourage to do that.
