Olivia Zhao Joins The Org’s Research Team, The Org

Olivia Zhao has become the newest member of The Org team, taking on the role of Researcher. She will be based in the New York office, and will report to VP of Research Sara Michelsen.

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.

She brings six years of experience in both outsourcing and product companies, where she created charts for better visualization of data within companies, worked for a provider of deferred payment solutions and created and maintained booking APIs for a company in the shipping industry. “I’m excited to work for The Org because I believe in the values the company promotes,” Alexandra said. “I feel transparency is of utmost importance, not only in the professional world but in all the other areas of life.

When she's not working, Alexandra loves to learn more about herself and the environment around her. “Outside of work, I am interested in discovering more about my inner world,” she said. “I love to read, dance, and challenge myself to do things that I never thought I would have done.” We can’t wait to see what you accomplish with us at The Org, Alexandra!
