Isabella Piazzesi, Senior Consultant, Boston, MA
My career path has taken its twists and turns. I started in the consumer goods industry, creating promotion diverse optimization plans that saved the company $500,000 Euros annually. After a while, I knew I had to advance my career, so I moved to Boston, and got my MBA. Everyone told me about the struggles of international students finding a job, yet opportunity met luck, and everis and I found each other. I have been working with everis for almost 4 years now. Currently, I work as Senior Consultant at one of the top 10 International Banks, where I am performing as a young leader for my team. A big component of my success has been the inter-office trainings and taking courses in areas where I can grow. I am still learning and have many turns to take, but I am very happy to be a part of everis and where I can contribute to other’s success.
Maria Eugenia Benito, Managing Partner Washington, D.C.
I was born in Salamanca, Spain. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics – and a postgraduate degree in ‘Methodes algebriques’ in Paris. I then attended Esade Business School where I received my Executive MBA. In addition, I completed different executive courses at a number of prestigious schools in different countries such as the UK, China and the US. I started my career at Telefonica before joining everis. At everis, I started my journey as a programmer and had the opportunity to work in different countries such as the UK, Spain, Latin America and the US and in a number of industries such as Banking and the Public Sector. In 2012, I moved to Washington, D.C. where I have been leading different accounts and was promoted to partner in 2016. I got married in 2015 and I’ve just started a new journey as a mom with my little boy who is 5 months. I found the everis environment and culture grows without thinking about gender bias and stereotypes. At everis, you can be your authentic self and diversity is fully respected. In the future, I hope more everis women have a voice at any level of leadership, giving them credit for their ideas and celebrating them. I would love to see more women in executive positions. Everyone has a part to play – all the time, everywhere. The biggest thing that I can do is to proactively champion the many remarkable women in my life.
Esperanza Fernandez-Palacios Perejo, Solutions Project Leader, Birmingham, AL
Since my teen years, I have been fascinated how IT is changing the world and our daily lives. So when I finished high school, I had no doubt I would pursue an IT engineering degree. When I started working at everis eight years ago, I never imagined it was the beginning of an incredible adventure that has led me to work in Seville, Canarias and finally in the US. everis has given me not only the opportunity to learn and grow, but also the opportunity to work in different sectors and cities, together with amazing people. Also I have developed my personal life with my career, as I have started a family in the past few years. What makes me especially proud is that my daughters can see that with a positive attitude and hard work, there are no limits to your professional goals.
