Olivia Zhao (She/Her)

VP of Operations at The Org

The data operations team at The Org is focused on building and maintaining the world's largest org chart database.

My role here is to support and guide the data operations team in establishing strong operational data processes and ensuring that we have access to the right tools and systems.

Before joining The Org, I worked in Cyber Security at a Top Australian Bank. My day to day is focused on helping ensure Cyber Security controls are functioning as per intended! My role also involves building interactive dashboards to visualize highly complex Cyber Security data to highlight operational performance and risk posture for internal stakeholders.

I moved to New York City in 2020 (right around when COVID hits the world... talk about good timing) and came across The Org. I was immediately drawn to the mission of The Org to make organizations more transparent and could not be more excited to join the team in pursuit of that mission.
