During the entire year of 2014, I was appointed Finance controller for a part of our UK based operations. The office, in greater London, was already going through a change of mindset so as to fend off the post-crisis challenges that still haunt the European markets. Together with the team, we immediately faced a wave of difficulties: decreasing sales, tough competition and old mistakes. I was very proud to see that, through the focused work of the entire team on location, we got back to our committed result in a matter of a few months and managed to over deliver the targets we had set by the end of the year.
