Read on to learn more about Giulia’s journey to and at Ogury.
What lead you to become Field Marketing Manager, Southern Europe & LATAM at Ogury?
I’ve always had a big passion for foreign languages and writing, that’s why after a Bachelor’s degree in Applied Linguistics and Cultural Studies, I decided to take on journalism studies and started working for an Italian daily newspaper. Soon, I realized that what really interested me was the behind the scene of news, how companies create stories, and how they work with reporters. I changed my job and started managing the PR and activities of Amazon Italia. But that wasn’t enough: I was driven by the curiosity of working in (not for!) a big company, and fate brought me to meet Francesca Lerario, MD Italy at Ogury.
What excites you the most about working in Tech?
It’s proof that everything is possible. There is no other industry that shifts the way we live quite like the tech industry does. And Ogury is breaking new ground.
How did you come across your role at Ogury?
Francesca was looking for someone to support the marketing activities in the Italian market: budget management, events planning, and relationships with the press. I was in Jerusalem when Ogury called me to offer this position and today, I couldn’t be happier nor more fulfilled being an Ogurian. In one year I had the chance to meet and work together with many different people, departments, travel, and get in touch with other cultures.
Describe your role at Ogury and the types of projects your team focuses on.
As Field Marketing Manager of Southern Europe & LATAM, I support the Italian, Spanish, and Mexican Brand and Publisher teams in organizing events, localizing corporate documents, seasonal packages, and managing ad hoc requests. Thanks to my previous career in PR, I also support the PR team for the Italian market. I am very lucky because working with so many teams gives me an incredible overview of what happens in the company.
What is unique about Ogury compared to other companies you’ve worked for?
Everyone embodies at least one of the values on which Ogury is based. There is a strong sense of belonging and working all together with a common purpose. It makes me feel proud of being part of this global project.
Ogury employees embody (GRIT). How do you apply this core value to your work?
I am a very meticulous person and I am only satisfied when things are perfect. Perseverance and determination are the ingredients of my personal and professional success. Exactly what I need to reach my goals.
What do you enjoy most about LIFE AT OGURY?
First, the atmosphere. The strong sense of belonging and working together with a common purpose. Then, the cross-collaboration with different teams and cultures. At Ogury there are no secrets: there is transparency in the processes and team’s communication, no matter the status. Last but not least, the growth opportunity and meritocracy.
