Her job at ÅF - Multitasking!
Myrto works in our office in Madrid as Associate Director IFIs.
How would you describe your job?
Multitasking? I am heading the international commercial activities for ÅF in Spain, while coordinating the multilateral market opportunities with international financial institutions (IFI’s). I am also in charge of sales for the Policy & Regulation unit in Europe, Africa, Middle East and CIS.
Myrto, you just recently got promoted. Could you please tell us a bit about your career at ÅF?
I first joined the company 10 years ago and 7 years have passed since ÅF acquired Mercados EMI. During this decade I have seen the company grow and evolve, and me with it. I first started as Business Development Officer and eventually grew to my current role, constantly adapting to the changing market and corporate conditions.
When you finished university, what was your first job?
I come from Greece, where my family owns a small company that works in the sector of pre-fabricated buildings for industrial use. I started working there during the summer far before finishing the university, getting familiar with all activities and processes in management, sales, accounting and plant operations. This has been a vital period in building up my professional skills. After graduating from the Athens’ Economic University Business School, I worked in marketing at our company until I left Greece to study my Masters’ in the UK. After finishing my MA in Personnel Management at the WBS, I moved to London where I worked for a conference producing company. I was responsible for producing international conferences mainly on energy and PPPs. This is where I got my first contact with the energy sector and the international market and at that time, I decided that I wanted to pursue an international career. When, in 2007, I got a job offer from, back then, Mercados I moved to Madrid and in 2010 I joined ÅF following the acquisition.
