As FOEX GmbH continues to grow and hire talented new employees, we’ve started this new article series to introduce our newest staff members to our customers, partners, readers and friends. In fact, why keep all this to ourselves when Patrycja could soon be working with you!
Introducing Patrycja Gorol, the newest member of the FOEX sales team, with this 7 “Get to know you” questions:
1. Can you tell us a little bit about your background?
I am originally from Poland, where I got my master’s degree in Economics. Afterwards, I worked for many years for an ERP software company in Slovakia until last year when I took a sabbatical to travel the world. I have just recently moved to Austria and I’m happy to be part of FOEX.
2. What was it about FOEX that attracted you the most?
I liked the idea that Peter and Matt took this concept of developing plugins for Oracle APEX and managed to build their own software development tool around it and establish a company in the process. It’s great to work with people that are passionate about what they do. I have the chance to learn something new from them every single day.
3. Was there a project or initiative in your career that sticks out the most?
I was part of the team launching the Business Development department in India. It was a great professional and cultural experience to be involved in the recruitment and training process, as well as work side by side with the newly created team. When I left, a few months later, this new team was already doing a great job within the company and that gave me a truly rewarding feeling.
4. Where do you envision spending your 3 month sabbatical?
If one day I’ll take a sabbatical again, I would like spend it in South America.
5. What super power would you like to have?
Although I speak a couple of languages, I would like to have the superpower of omnilingualism, so that I could effortlessly communicate with the locals no matter where I go for business or personal reasons.
6. How do you spend your leisure time? Do you have any hobbies?
I love travelling especially by motorbike (for now only as a passenger, but maybe one day this too will change). I enjoy cooking and trying out different cuisines, and I also like sports, particularly running.
7. Is there a book that you would recommend to others?
Currently I am reading ‘Shantaram’ by Gregory David Roberts. It is an immersive, high-adventure novel based on a true story of 8 years in the Bombay underworld. I highly recommend it to everyone.
We’re excited to have Patrycja as part of our business development team and look forward to watching her continued development in the role!
