Aston German graduate among 30 Ones to Watch 2016

Karina Burrowes, who graduated from Aston University with a BSc in German in 2011, has been selected as one of 30 Ones to Watch 2016 by Brummel Magazine. In their fourth annual Ones to Watch list, they celebrate “the breadth, performance and achievement of bright young talent in London’s financial services sector and allied fields”. Nominees are required to be under 40 years of age and an outperformer in their market and, beyond that, need to demonstrate drive, energy and an entrepreneurial spirit. Additionally, the judges looked for evidence of a nominee’s holistic contribution to the organisation, whether internally, as a leader of a networking or advocacy group, or externally, as a champion of a charity, mentoring programme or other such project.

Karina joined the Bloomberg graduate scheme in 2011 and currently holds the position of EMEA technical support manager.

Here’s what Brummel has to say about her:

Burrowes joined Bloomberg as a graduate in 2011 and has progressed from individual contributor to leader, then manager in less than five years.
A co-leader of the Bloomberg Women’s Community, Burrowes has a strong interest in gender diversity and is an advocate for a number of women in the technical-support department. She has organised events on topics linked to diversity and inclusion, from panel discussions to a workshop for leaders on male advocacy, which explored ways of tackling workplace gender issues.

Karina, congratulations from the German staff at Aston and all the best for your future endeavors!
