Introducing new team members: Luz Maria

July 1, 2021

Our team is expanding again! We’re delighted to introduce the latest addition to the Globally Cool team: International trade adviser Luz Maria. Without any further ado, here she is in her own words:

Background

Hola! I am Luz Maria, and I am a new member of the Globally Cool team.

I have been working in international trade for around nine years. This allowed me to support many companies in entering new markets and identify countless business opportunities. At my past jobs, I have been involved in the market intelligence of a diverse range of products, which included detecting B2B busines opportunities, consumer trends and legal frameworks like free trade agreements and other trade preference systems.

On the other end, I have supported companies identifying and approaching the right distribution channels in international markets – usually by means of international trade shows, organisation-owned events, as well as one-to-one meetings.

Study, languages and passions

I studied International Relations in Bogotá, Colombia and hold a Master in Logistics and Supply Chain Management from the University of Applied Sciences for Economics and Management (FOM) in Germany. My native language is Spanish, but I am also fluent in English and German.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, trying new foods and getting to know new places. I am also passionate about skin care, and I like experimenting with natural ingredients and formulating cosmetics for my family at home.

Bringing cultures, countries and people together

What I love about international trade is that it brings people together through benefits for both the side of the seller and buyer. International supply chains not only generate higher efficiency, but they also bring cultures, countries and people nearer to each other. Supporting new trade opportunities is helping to build new bridges in the world, which is what I am looking forward to doing at Globally Cool.

At Globally Cool, I will hold the position of International Trade Advisor. I am very much looking forward to being part of this dynamic and innovative team and sharing my international trade experience with the diverse spectrum of Globally Cool’s clients.
