What do you like most about your job? 

I really enjoy the fact that it never gets boring. The business is always evolving and there are always new challenges, but also opportunities to try something new, to develop the existing processes. Secondly, see the answer to the question below 😉

How is it to work with the A-team? 

That is the best ever! We have such a great team and despite the distance and different time zones, it feels like we are one family spread around the globe.

What has convinced you to start at AVOW and how has your journey been for the past 3 years with us?

I have worked with the AVOW founders in a previous company. When they approached me and told me about their plans to found AVOW and that they were looking for someone to set up the finance department, I was all in. 

3 years later, I realized that was a very good decision. The last 3 years have been fun and it has been very nice to see how the company grew from scratch to where we are now.

Monica Todor - A-Team

What does one need to be a good Finance Manager?

One needs some technical skills, such as a finance and accounting background, but on top of that I believe that attention to detail is important, while still keeping the big picture in mind. Good organizational skills and an analytical mindset would round up the picture.

You have recently returned from your maternity leave. Any recommendations for new mums 🙂 ?  

Get yourself a good coffee machine and spend some time with other parents with kids of the same age. PEKiP classes, Montessori classes or Baby-Swimming classes provide some time out of the house and are a good opportunity to share experiences with other parents while the little ones get to see some other babies too.

What are your favorite spots in Berlin? 

Before having a baby I used to spend a lot of time in Templehofer Feld – it’s a great place to meet friends or go for a longboarding ride. Otherwise drinks at Holzmarkt by the river on a summer evening are also something I  enjoy(ed). Now that the little one is here, I am happy to hear suggestions from others about where the good playgrounds are!
