The way is forward.
Hanna has built a career on the challenging area of Architecture. She is a realistic and pragmatic architect to whom “done is better than perfect”. With a diversified working experience, Hanna had the chance to work as a project manager in infrastructure, residential and retail, throughout the project life-cycle, from concept making to execution and licensing. She was in contact with different types of organisations and working environments, from small architectural to large civil engineering firms, from private to public customers and industrial organisations. Throughout the years, she realized that the combination of managerial and creativity skills could make the difference in creative industries.
Once her father decided to establish a business, she took a stance leading the renovation of an old-building in down town to make a guest-house and a small grocery. Not happy with it, she was heavily involved in day-to-day management, from bookings to suppliers, from employees to customers. In the end, the family successfully sold the business, but a passion for business remained with Hanna.
Hanna is willing to make a shift in her career into areas and industries where creative but structured and result-oriented thinking can actually make it stand out.
A positive and empathic person Hanna believes impossible does not exist when one dreams to make it real. Nevertheless, she is not an individualist, and success is to be shared. One of her hobbies used to be acting in an amateur group theatre. Motivated by the support of her loved ones, Hanna is proud to belong to a family which has survived several wars and always managed to move forward.
