I have started my working life with a vocational training to be a banker in 1993. In addition to my job at the bank I finished some studies in finance and management. 2004 I left the bank with some colleagues to build up an own business. Since 2004 I have been running my own business as a financial in Frankfurt and Berlin. In Berlin I shared office with a business partner and we are called Preuß & Zielinski. We are associate partner by FiNUM. Private Finance AG. I advise high individual clients in their financial matters. One of my specializations is everything around the stock exchange.

My membership and my activities at BPW started in 2006 first as a Representative of Young BPW and then as Financial Officer from 2007 to April 2012. Since 2010 I have also been one of the annual accounts auditors at BPW Germany. Now I am the Finance Officer of BPW Europe.

I am campaigning for the aims of BPW Europe as the strongest region within the international BPW network. “Think and act locally, nationally and internationally” as one of the main aims is my motivation.

I hope that I can promote many European projects to reach our aims during my term.

Benedetta Palermo (Italy)

ECC European Young Representative

benedetta.palermo@bpw-europe.org

For the years 2017 – 2020, the Young BPW Europe Representative is Benedetta Palermo: 28 years old, Italian, passionate and enthusiastic.

I am a legal counsel and I am working in the world of fashion and luxury. As I am really curious and always eager to learn, I am currently working at the advertising department. …Hence, a legal completely devoted to fashion!

I joined BPW in 2012 after attending the European Conference in Sorrento and since that moment I have committed all myself in order to promote and enhance Young BPW. Today is such a great honor and a real pleasure to carry on such commitment as Young BPW Europe Representative.

I strongly believe that being all together is one of the key aspects of a Federation as BPW, especially for us Young members. My personal suggestion to all Young BPW Europe ladies is: come and attend the most of BPW Europe events you can. You will meet great and inspiring leaders, excellent professionals and very nice friends!

See you all soon! Right?! Ciao a Tutte!
