Jonathan Brown & Florina Schmid & Adriana Ma
We have great opportunities for identifying resources and networking within our GMBA class alone; however, many of us lack knowledge of most of our classmates' backgrounds and experiences, let alone those of the alumni and professors. GMBA Connect can work as a platform or tool for all current students, alumni, and faculty to get to know one another. Short but explicit descriptions of personal background information will be posted on the website and GMBA newsletter. Self-presentations will be given on Monday and Wednesday evenings before core classes. GMBA Connect is a great way to learn about one other.

Nationality: American

Presently I'm the Head of Sales Operations and Strategy at ByteDance, covering the Asia-Pacific market and based in Singapore. Scaling one of the world's fastest-growing startups in this dynamic and diverse market is a huge challenge, and I enjoy it immensely.

I most recently spent 2 years helping LinkedIn scale its APAC business in a Sales Ops capacity, and prior to that spent 3+ years in Marketing Operations at Bazaarvoice (an enterprise SaaS business).

In my spare time, I love reading extensively and exploring new corners of the world, having traveled to all seven continents and 50+ countries to date. I'm also a regular contributor to ClickZ.com, writing articles primarily about the future of marketing automation and sales productivity:

Nationality: Brazilian

As a Brazilian born to Taiwanese parents, I returned to their roots for my MBA degree to brush up my management skills and live the culture that was part of my upbringing.
In addition to the MBA, I earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from Sao Paulo University and a master’s degree in marketing from I.A.E. Grenoble Institute.
I started my professional career at the Management Trainee program at Banco Votorantim, where I worked in Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) for the Sales and Trading department. Later, I was invited to join the Real Estate Private Equity department as an FP&A analyst working with valuation models and streamlining the information flow from the real estate projects. After Banco Votorantim, I joined the Business Planning team at Citi Private Bank.
