Olivia Zhao, Researcher at The Org
Olivia is responsible for conducting research to drive the growth of The Org’s org chart database, and assisting the research team in building the most comprehensive and accurate database of company org charts in the world.
Olivia was drawn to working at The Org because she “really resonates with its mission - to make organizations more transparent”. She said that she believes The Org “provides an incredible platform to showcase all of the amazing people that an organisation is made up of”.
Before joining The Org, Olivia worked in the Cyber Security team at ANZ, one of the top banks in Australia. As a Governance, Risk and Compliance analyst, her goal was to ensure that the bank had adequate cybersecurity controls in place, which were compliant with industry and regulatory standards.
Olivia was born in China, but spent most of her childhood in Singapore, and then moved to Melbourne, Australia where she completed her studies and began her working career. She is now based in New York City.
Olivia has a passion for travel and exploring the world. Earlier this year she visited one of her bucket list countries, Iceland, which she says was an unforgettable experience. She is an outdoors enthusiast, and goes hiking every chance that she gets.
