Carola Gasser-Trinkl

From her 6 years in New York, Carola Gasser-Trinkl not only brings varied experience in Finance, FMCG and the public sector but strategic and intercultural expertise as well as strong problem-solving skills. Her stops included Raiffeisen’s subsidiary RB International Finance as well as the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs‘ Consulate General in New York. She recently finished her MBA at the renowned NYU Stern School of Business with a focus on Strategy and Operations during which she also worked for the Faculty’s Strategy Department. She enjoys getting to know new industries and fields and gaining a full understanding of different business models. Framing new strategic perspectives and moderating & presenting are things that exhilarate her. She is fascinated by optimizing and constantly looking for better solutions, often in a creative way, avoiding the all too common „that’s how we’ve always done it“ attitude. Here she considers is essential to develop solutions together with clients and to recognize their individual expertise in order to bring mere concepts to life and ensure tangible results.
